An unconventional match written in the stars, this love chronicle brings us an unparalleled story of two states reuniting. The story of Shree and Neha is a wedding bartender’s special – 30ml of 2 States, 20ml of Serendipity, 15ml of DDLJ, 10ml of Hitch and a whole lot of love!
The story starts somewhere in the summer of 2016 wherein Neha was gearing up for her trip to the Himalayas with cousins and friends, and Shree received a phone call from one of Neha’s travel mates to join them for a trip to the hills. Shree ended his vacation from the backwaters of Kerala and turned up in Delhi just in time to join these guys which included Neha and her gang of cousins and friends and here entailed a journey that would change his and Neha’s life forever.
It was a rocky start to their journey as Shree was an unknown guest for the trip, and the first time Neha laid eyes on our male protagonist, he was brooding with his face covered, unintentionally forcing Neha to focus on other people. A few hours into the journey, Shree decided to gel in with the crowd and his eyes met Neha’s. She was smitten that instant by our going-to-be-Judge, Shree.
A few hours rolled on and the rain gods decided to intervene, and as per Shree, the random act of kindness by Neha of forcing him to eat is where she left a lasting impression. Whoever said the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, was once again proven right. The subtle acts of affection continued throughout the trip and now the people around began to take notice too. Neha’s cousin took upon himself to get the two bewitched protagonists together and made them aware about each others feelings.
Things started to heat up and after returning to Delhi, both Neha and Shree decided to start dating and spent hours together on the streets of the capital exploring food, culture and love. Winter came on and brought some cold news that Shree had to move to Hyderabad for his job. As fate would have it, the distance between the bodies brought their souls together and they realised they did not want to stay apart from each other.
Now comes the bollywood home-stretch with a twist, Neha’s Punjabi family had already met Shree and approved of her choice, however Shree’s Mallu family were a bit apprehensive about this unification. Post a lot of struggle and convincing, Shree’s family finally decided to give in and agreed to the marriage. The couple finally tied the knots on March 4th, 2018.
The wedding was a perfect amalgamation of a chirpy Punjabi wedding and eloquent Mallu rituals. A beautiful blend of North and South, Neha and Shree made sure to incorporate and respect both the traditions involved. Neha took the pheras in a stunning Kanjeevaram saree while Shree adorned a customary white shirt and lungi. Subsequent to the pheras, both dressed up in quintessential Punjabi ensemble and looked picturesque in a pink lehenga and white sherwani fusion.
A story that forge the idea of never giving up on love, Neha and Shree makes us want to experience a magical adventure of our own!
