Ah, my first Indian wedding and I couldn't have been any happier!
Priya and Ritesh's weekend long celebration started at the Glen cove Gurudwara in Long Island. Before the ceremony, we did their intimate first look and bridal portraits among yellow blooms and dandy lions in the hidden backyard of the Gurudwara.
Priya looked beautiful in her Pink bridal wear. She smiled from a distance as she heard the barat approaching. The colors, enthusiasm and dance moves of the barat was quite an experience. Ritesh loves to dance and so did his wedding crowd. I loved watching him at the barat and again at the reception the next day. The reception ceremony in Long Island City was filled with Bollywood music and unstoppable dance moves from everyone present.
Priya and Ritesh: I am so honored that you guys chose me to capture your wedding day. It was a pleasure working with you and your amazing family. I wish you both long, happy, healthy and prosperous marriage.
Thanks to my dear friend and amazing second shooter Karthik Elango for capturing this wedding with me. All the pictures would not have been possible without him.
Gemma and Daniel flew in from Ireland for their destination wedding in the famous New York City. With them flew in their closest and dearest family members who couldn't stop shedding the tears of happiness on their wedding day, as the couple exchanged vows, rings and kisses in the beautiful Ladies Pavilion. Their pastel themed wedding was gorgeous on a warm spring day. After the ceremony, we strolled around the park for some bridal portraits.
Gemma and Daniel, Congratulation! I had the greatest pleasure celebrating with you. I wish you both a safe journey back to Ireland as Husband and Wife.
