"While the groom Abhishek was dressed like Lord Krishna with yellow turban, morpankh (peacock feather) on his turban band, flute in hand, pearl necklace and red dhoti, the bride Pooja was also dressed like Radha."
The enthusiastic bride and groom, working as IT experts in Mumbai, had also designed their own dresses for their marriage. Initially, it was the groom's idea to celebrate his wedding with this period theme because he was born on Janmashtami festival.
The family members too agreed to his proposal and organised the D-day. The reception did not have any Bollywood songs playing but Radha-Krishna bhajans only.
