Kresha Bajaj knew from the start of a career as a designer that she would be the one to create her own wedding dress.
And this year Kresha got her chance as she married Vanraj Zaver at The Leela Palace in Udaipur, India. Along with all of the beautiful wedding clothes Kresha designed for her and her husband, she also created a wedding lehenga (long skirt) embroidered with details from the story of their relationship.
"There's a pattern in the middle of the lehenga which looks like chevron, but is actually a repeat of our names written in zari thread," Kresha explained to The Huffington Post. "Each kali (or panel) has a frame which depicts milestone moments from our life. So as you go around the lehenga from left to right, you can see our entire story unfold."
There are jumping dolphins to represent how the pair met (while protesting against the cruelty of captive marine mammals) and a panel depicting their engagement in the Maldives.
Kresha created the masterpiece so that she could frame her wedding dress and remember the details of her love story forever.
Kresha wrote in a blog post "If I was going to frame it, I had to make it like a piece of art. In order to have a piece of artwork up on our wall, it had be something meaningful, something we wouldn't get sick of looking at. And the one thing I knew we wouldn't get sick of looking at was our love story."
How cute is that?
