Shalaka turned into a beautiful Marathi bride as she decked up for her wedding. Shalaka and Chinmay had a stunning Maharashtrian wedding on 24 December, 2021. This gorgeous couple had an arranged marriage, however, due to the pandemic restrictions, they could meet for over 7 months. Chinmay was settled in Seattle, USA while Shalaka was in Mumbai. They bonded over calls and messages for all these months until they finally met.
After their first meeting, it was an instant click for them and Shalaka tells us “The moment I saw him, I knew I found the man of my dreams”. Isn’t that just too cute?

Chinmay decided to color coordinate with his stunning bride-to-be. He wore a simple silk kurta in yellow and embellished it with a pearl neckpiece. Chinmay wore a fur cap which is known as a Kolhapuri Topi and is considered very auspicious in the Marathi tradition.
