Today's bride, Anandita described her wedding as the day she eventually married her best friend. Their love story unfolds as Anandita met Narendra in their elementary years, at church to be precise. Not only did they go to the same high school, the pair also pursued higher education in the same city. Years later, Narendra finally proposed to his girlfriend during a surprise one-day Bali trip. At a romantic dinner inside a beach-side cave filled with candles, Anandita said yes to a life together with Narendra and the rest was history.

As both come from families deeply rooted in culture that pays huge respect to their ancestors, it was only natural that a traditional Javanese wedding would be held. For their wedding ceremony, the pair looked pretty in white, a beskap for the groom and a kebaya for the bride. As the procession went on, the romantic ambiance became even more sacred as the newlyweds entered the hall serenaded by their all-time favorite song, Great is Thy Faithfulness.

Following the traditional vows, the pair headed to their reception dinner. This time, the lovebirds were seen in dodot Solo Basahan, the perfect choice for their culture-laden wedding. The ballroom of Hotel Mulia Senayan, Jakarta was decorated elegantly with a garden theme, complete with colorful flowers, mini trees and ancient temples that can be found in the island of Java. Every detail was just thoughtful and the infamous decoration team namely Suryanto Decoration, Ebimoekti and Azka Anggun professionally catered to this couple's vision.

With a grand wedding of 2800 guests, it was pretty surprising that it took only 3 months for the couple to organize everything. "It was because we know exactly what we wanted and which vendors would be suitable for the wedding. It's the one advice we can give for other couples planning their wedding," the bride said. Anandita also shared what she felt after the day ended, "It was an amazing day. Tiring for sure, but I was way, way too happy."
