It was love at first sight for Kritika and Vaibhav. With time their love for each other grew stronger. Vaibhav knew she was the one! On Kritika’s birthday party, when she was busy dancing with her friends, the music suddenly stopped with the spotlight on her and Vaibhav on one knee. He popped the question and she, of course, said yes! And since then there’s no looking back. On December, 2015 Kritika and Vaibhav exchanged their wedding vows. They had a grand wedding reception at BKC, Mumbai on 20th December. Organised and planned by “The Wedding Designers”, their wedding was truly a regal affair.
