Ehsaas Dillon ke: Armaan Weds Riddhima... !!!
welcome to the wedding ceremony of our favourite couple...
Under the canopy of bright twinkling stars,Armaan stood mesmerized with the view in front of him.He had waited for this moment & now that it was here,it couldn't have been more perfect. The full moon shone brightly in the star studded navy night.Lights from boats winked in the distance. It was one of those perfect nights when the air currents were just right,the air crystalline,the sky hard & bright,the water sparkling & clear..an enchanting place full of magic,happiness & serenity.The wind swished & swirled around the balcony where he stood & he could hear the distant notes of the traditional Shehnai ushering the joyous occasion.Riddhima & Armaan's wedding night---a night so magical & pure like their love for each other.The party seemed to be in full swing.As Armaan got dressed in his golden brocade richly intricated sherwani,he cudnot help but smile at the way things had turned around for him n Riddhima climaxing at this night which he hoped would lay to rest any pain they'd had in the past..and be a start to a journey of endless love.
Armaan reminisced about their short meeting earlier in the afternoon.He had called Riddhima to a particular place near the resort..The beach was narrow there,just a ribbon of sand separating water from a seemingly solid wall of lush greenery.Riddhima had reached the set place before time.Nothing seemed real to her…the acquamarine sea,the pristine white beach & the brilliant sun washing everything in gold.Armaan watched her at a distance wondering with more patience than curiosity,why just seeing her made his stomach tighten.. She cud do it with a look, a string of words, but certainly just with her presence… always. He hugged her from back and both of them stood mesmerized listening to the sound of surf.As the breeze stirred and sunlight glimmered and shifted in a kaleidoscope of dizzying patterns,he lit a little candle with a flickering flame,gently took her hand & bowed down on his knees..

I promise to keep loving you like this & even more…I promise to cherish you & your love all my life… I promise to give you all the happiness in this world..I promise to be always there for you in good times or bad.. I promise to be with you in the bond of our love forever & ever….
For yesterday's memories, today's love, and tomorrow's dreams I LOVE YOU BASKET!!!"
At his words,her heart soared…she almost fell on him,hugged him tight and close.Tears glistening like diamonds on her cheeks as she clung to him.. she welled her heart to return to normal tempo and before she attempted to speak, a slightly naughty grin covered his face that was so disarmingly charming!!!
"Hey why the tears"?he said even though she tried to unobtrusively wipe them away.."I thought you were happy"
"I am more than happy Armaan…I …I always cry when I m happy"
"I know basket..but lets see you smile today" & he kissed her..it lit up her face & caused a powerful rush of love enough to weaken her knees… she smiled into his eyes & saw the promise there again..
Her smiled widened,"You are very good at this..aren't you?"
Good at what???
"At this",she turned her face and kissed his hand.,"make me feel special"

"You are special my love"..he said truthfully.."very special indeed"
Her eyes suddenly welled with tears.."Thanks"..the last word was a gulp..
The-------beach resort was Riddhima's idea.She had always wanted her a 'perfect romantic wedding" by the sea and Armaan had wanted to give her that.He only hoped it would all work out as planned—the wedding of her dreams.The loud knocking on his bedroom door by the boys-Atul, Rahul.Nikhil & Arif jolted him out of his stupor.All dressed in their traditional attires teasingly signalled him to make his way towards the marquee.It was the time for the show to begin!!
The entrance was adorned with beautiful canopy of flowers in scarlets and pinks and purples and yellows and oranges.There was an ice sculpture with two interlocking hearts engraved with the intials A & R on either side. The palm trees along the aisle were decorated with twinkling lights & small cream lanterns…elfin and ethereal…the mirrored image of which gave a surrealistic look in water..There were brightly lit & finely erected sand castles on both sides of the aisle..The complete trail was lined with colorful corals & big half- opened oyster shells with glittering pearls inside for the mesmeric appearance…
The air of the beach resort was balmy & infused with the fragrance of Jasmines..Riddhima's favourite ofcourse..The marquee was lit by the glow of crystal chandeliers that had arrived from Jaipur that very morning.Engraved and carved by the skilled goldsmiths,the chandeliers reflected the light in all its glorious hues,transforming the place to its equivalent in paradise..

The party flowed from the marquee to the sandy shores of the beach.Elaborate decks had been erected at the beach.Round tables were placed with exquisite linen dotted with silver cutlery.Each table bore a lovely portrait of Armaan and Riddhima surrounded by lilies and orchids and decorative glass bowl containing colourful shells placed on rose petals. A truly majestic aura dat had steeped well in good tradition.. The fragrance of flowers, the smell of shores and the melodious strains of musical instrumentals created a perfect ceremonial mood and atmosphere….something that is beyond description in its wondrous beauty!!! And towards d sea was sight so magnificent that brought a tear to every young girls cheek. An elaborate wooden ramp had been glided out towards the ocean & spread out to encase the most magnificent mandap an eye had never seen. Carved with a single piece of wood,the pillars bore intricate sculptures that told Armaan & Riddhima's love saga,entwined in wreaths of Jasmine.Lillies n Orchids..
The wedding guests had arrived in all their fineries… Anjaly,Muskaan,Tanvi,Asma,Tamanna..all the bejeweled girls bedecked in bright coloured finest outfits luked like angels scampering around beatifically all over the place. As the guests waited for the bride and groom,they were treated to sumptuous delicacies from all over the country..the ornate menus having been selected by the finest chefs.A live Barbeque station,a lavish cake corner were the highlights of the arrangements, while the buffet dinner featured the best Sea food to be had in Lonawala/Goa.
As Armaan approached the marquee with his brash young friends in tow,he ran his eyes all over the place.Yes it looked exactly as he had wanted it to be.The party beckoned Armaan towards the mandap where the priest spoke his traditional hindi filmy line "Kanya ko bulayaiye,mahurat ka samay beeta ja raha hai".Armaan held his breath as he waited for his bride to arrive.Every muscle in his body was taut with tension.First he heard the loud guffaws of his guests soften to whispered murmurs of awe.Then as the loud music allayed to the notes of sarangi,only a lover as impatient & eager as Armaan could have heard the sound of Riddhima's anklets amidst the hushed whispers and excited exclamations of the wedding party.

Riddhima gently glided in an amazingly rich deep red & golden lehanga intricated with shimmering sequins,diamantes and bright coloured real stones.As for her jewellery,lets just say if put together. cud hv sunk a ship.She wore a neck hugging choker & an antique gold queens necklace that dripped from her collarbone to her waist and dozens of bangles with hanging kaliras on each arm.She looked overwhelmingly beautiful…almost hypnotic!!! Riddhima walked her way towards Armaan luking every inch of a blushing bride. Her apricot skin gleamed & her eyelids were neatly lined with kohl & glittered with crimson & gold shadow.
Armaan could not believe his eyes at such a vision of loveliness but he noticed her trembling hands & beneath that veil he could tell her lips were trembling too.After the trials their love had endured, he knew Riddhima was nervous & feared something ill would befall them and jinx their happiness…a thought that had always disturbed her whenever she was little happy.Armaan could feel her insecurities from across the ramp that she walked towards him.As he looked at her,his heart filled with recklessness only a red blooded Punjabi could have felt.He stood up and to the horror of his parents and surprise of his friends,he strode towards Riddhima & took her in his arms.He needed to comfort and nip her insecurities in the bud. He wanted her to know he would be there for her,every inch of the way,starting from that moment. Their eyes met for a long moment,a special moment,a moment to be cherished & remembered.She flushed scarlet at the easy courtesy in his manner betrayed by puppy like pleading in his gaze… He walked with her in his arms towards the priest & vowed to make her his for this lifetime & the next & the one after till Armaan & Riddhima would no longer be the two different inviduals,just be the one.

The party then broke into applause as the noise of fireworks demanded their attention towards the velvet sky that read We'll be together forever". Riddhima glanced at Armaan & suddenly the Dj belted out loud Punjabi numbers that had Anjaly and others sending coquettish glances towards Armaan.Armaan & Riddhima were dragged to the dance floor & were hoisted on eager shoulders.Armaan reached out to hold her hand to confirm the sweet reality that Riddhima was now his wife,his companion,his very sweet & better half.
The evening culminated with series of group photos in the end and the entire gang presented Armaan - Riddhima a cd of their momentous journey taken by them in the last 4 years....
