Vaishnavi weds Jishnu
In the Kanakavalli Brides series, we feature beautiful brides who chose Kanakavalli for their special days, sharing the stories of their weddings with you.
Kanakavalli Bride Vaishnavi Krishna Kumar and her husband Jishnu Narayan knew of each other even before they met. They had many friends in common, including her sister. When they finally met, the two introverts took a little while to get to know each other. But the rest, as they say, is history. Jishnu proposed to Vaishnavi on her birthday in front of the Burj Khalifa after a romantic dinner date. And it was perfect!
Vaishnavi had always wanted to have a small wedding - even just a simple registration of marriage - but her family wasn't enthusiastic about the idea. Looking back now, however, this lovely Kanakavalli bride is glad that her elegant wedding brought together friends and family who she hadn't seen in months or years. The best thing about the wedding, Vaishnavi says, was that it was a reunion of her friends, colleagues and cousins.
Vaishnavi says that she will never forget the moment she walked towards the mandapam holding her father's hand, and the first time she saw Jishnu that day. When she sat down next to him, they exchanged a look and a smile that she says will stay with her forever.
Vaishnavi wore a beautiful Kanakavalli kanjivaram in a rich golden beige hue, and Jishnu wore a kurta and mundu in similar colours. The decor and flowers all complemented their outfits, including garlands in pastel colours and the gold tones of the mandap's backdrop.
As for the funniest advice Vaishnavi got about marriage? An aunt, after congratulating her, told her about the perils of waking up early every morning to make tea for one's husband. Laughing at the idea of marriage being reduced to a cup of tea, Vaishnavi says that luckily, she and Jishnu share the responsibilities around the house!
Vaishnavi's mother is a regular at Kanakavalli and contacted the store through WhatsApp to find her daughter the perfect bridal kanjivaram. Vaishnavi was thrilled to have personal assistance in buying the most important sari of her life, and says that the staff understood just what she wanted. And she found the perfect sari.
A big thank you to Vaishnavi for being a beautiful Kanakavalli bride, and for sharing the story of her wedding with us! We wish her and Jishnu a lifetime of togetherness.
