The wedding of our daughter Sow. Sripradha Chandrasekaran with Chi. Karthik Venu, s/o Mrs. Jayalakshmi & Mr. Venu (retd. Dy.General Manager, National Small Inds. Dev. Corpn., Chennai), both employed in Australia, was held in Chennai on the 1st and 2nd November 2016 thanks to the excellent support and coordination by Athithi Wedding Planners and I deem it an honour and privilege to place on record my experience and the pleasure I derived from the service rendered them, in making the event a successful achievement in our life.
I intended to have my daughter Sow. Sripradha Chandrasekaran’s marriage function to be celebrated in an austere but befitting scale and at the same time without compromising the serene requirements of our customs and rituals as enshrined in the religious tenets. Being an outsider to Chennai, my initial enquiries and compilation of info about the marriage planners did not however enthuse me until I could come across Athithi Wedding Planners through my daughter who is employed in California.
Being an ardent cricket enthusiast, I had earlier seen the marriage video album of Shri R. Ashwin a few years back on television and was immensely impressed by the way in which the function was organized and performed. When I came to know that it was Athithi Wedding Planners who were behind the successful planning and conduct of the marriage including catering services that carried high praise, I immediately realized that this is the one that was what I was looking for. It was then an easy and unanimous decision in our family to cease further scrutiny of wedding planners, for in Athithi Wedding Planners, we have identified the best and right choice.
Though our proposal was not a big budget affair, the warmth and courtesy extended to us in Athithi Wedding Planners as if we were a VIP customer to them was soul stirring. The manner in which they prepared and presented the customary Sweets, Fruits, ‘Paruppu Thengai’, and other essentials duly taking care of the minute requirements during the Nichayathartham function held on July 06 2016 at Chennai was awesome. Instantaneously, with full confidence in mind, I had confirmed my booking with Athithi Wedding Planners for the marriage celebration scheduled to be held on the 1st & 2nd of November 2016 at Chennai.
During the two days of the entire marriage function, the catering arrangements rendered by Athithi Wedding Planners was so excellent that there was no murmur of dissent / discomfort either from our friends or from the relatives of both sides and they all were so enamoured by the quality of the food items served and the manner in which they were treated by Athithi Wedding Planners catering group. I would fail in my duty if I don’t acknowledge the fact here that there had never been an instance during the two days of the marriage function that we were to go to the dining hall to attend to the guests that included five Australian guests and all of them felt at home as if they were personally treated by us.
I was heartened to see that Mr. T.V. Mohan the founder of Athithi Wedding Planners personally attended the Reception and also scrutinized the arrangements including tasting the food items prepared by the catering group. Here my sincere thanks are deservedly due to Mrs. Hema and her team of staff who were all through with us attending to any unforeseen requirements with smiling face. The special care that she has taken in arranging suitable accommodation and conveyance for the overseas guests at competitive rates was worthy enough to be specially mentioned for which we are greatly indebted to Athithi Wedding Planners.
With great pleasure and pride we whole-heartedly thank Athithi Wedding Planners and their dedicated team who earned us good name among our friends and relatives alike and in the process we derived lot of mental satisfaction in the successful conduct of the marriage. Given another chance, Athithi Wedding Planners would certainly be our first and only choice for any of our future requirements.
We once again appreciate and thank the Athithi Wedding Planners group for their excellent service and we wish them to reach newer heights in rendering this invaluable service to the Society.
With Warm Regards S. Chandrasekaran (retd. HR Executive, BHEL, Ranipet) G. Meenakshi Chandrasekaran (DAV BHEL School, Ranipet)
