Posted on March 7th, 2012 by meet

The Ritesh-Genelia wedding was a long-awaited affair since they had silently started dating after one of their films together, way back, in 2003. It was a star-lit affair held at the Mumbai Hyatt, in Santacruz, where the entire b-town was present. Ritesh and Genelia

The invitees and bride-groom attires

Vilasrao Deshmukh, Ritesh’s father, is a political figure, and so many personalities from the political cadre were invited. It was a gala affair of well dressed men and women, in westerns and ethnic dresses. Genelia, herself, was in a Neeta Lulla’s creation and was looking ethereal. Red made her look all the more blushful and coy. Ritesh was also looking elegant in a white sherwani. Genelia had her nose ring, the way they wear in Maharashtrian weddings and also the traditional Mundawali (head dress). Ritesh wore the head dress too and they looked quite a pair.

Church Wedding

They also had a Church wedding which would make their nuptial bondage even stronger! Genelia is by birth, a Manglorean Christian, and the couple had decided on a Christian wedding too. Genelia in her flowing white dress looked like an angel and Ritesh matched her beauty with his suavity and grace. Karan Johar was one of the best men for the church wedding.

Presentees from Bollywood fraternity

Abhishek Bacchan, Jaya Bacchan, Karan Johar along with his mom, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgan, Kajol, Jackie Shroff, Akshay Kumar, Asin, Sophie Chowdhury and others were all spotted dressed at their best. Aishwarya Rai was heard of having made a fleeting appearance at the wedding to bless the couple.

Nevertheless, Ritesh never forgot his dear fans and just after the ceremony was over, he posted a picture of his and Genelia’s to share a word of thanks for their fans. There were innumerable tweets coming in for the newly-weds. The fairytale wedding thus ended on a wonderful note of joy and gaiety.
