The final wedding of the 2016 busy season was QUITE the INCREDIBLE ending for us, let me tell you!! Not only was it our first ever Indian wedding celebration, but we got to celebrate with a couple who makes me all excited-happy + unable-to-type-without-making-mistakes as I think about them!! ; ) They bring so much LIFE + joy + fun to those around them … and when you couple that with the LIFE + joy + fun of an Indian wedding … it’s just BEAUTIFUL craziness!! I’m so excited to share!!
When I think back a couple of days to Vik + Mandy’s celebration, all I keep picturing is smiles. BIG, genuine, infectious smiles. From Vik’s brother + his dad, from Mandy’s mom + sister-in-law, from the wedding coordinator at Noah’s Event Venue where the celebration took place — everyone was just filled to the brim with joy for this couple + the energy of the day was THROUGH the roof!! There was unending dancing, laughter, cheering, + hugging. I’ve truly never heard a bride say, “I am just SO happy!!” so many times on her wedding day + wow, what a beautiful thing it was to witness. You can’t help but see Mandy’s JOY + love for Vik truly radiating from the photos of her taken throughout the day. She was GLOWING!! Absolutely glowing : )
Vikash was brought to tears all throughout the day … as he saw his bride for the very first time, as her dad brought her down the aisle, as family members lavished gifts + blessings on the couple … this big + intimidating guy (unless you get to know him ; )!!) was a beautiful mess of happiness + emotions. As the tears rolled down his cheeks, he would crack a joke in true Vik fashion, + Mandy would be bubbling over with laughter once again. It was almost like they were doing a magnificent dance, back + forth with their love throughout the day : )
As these two relive with us from afar (hope you’re enjoying the Dominican Republic, you two!!), let’s enjoy some of our favorite moments + memories from Vik + Mandy’s unforgettable celebration!! More stories to come as we scroll through these photos : ) Enjoy!
JOY : )
SO many intricate details!!!
Before the wedding festivities, the groom + his family have a special prayer + intimate ceremony together : )
Time for the Baraat! This is where the groom’s family brings him to the bride’s parents at the ceremony location! It is a HUGE celebration — dancing, music, prayer, etc.!!
Meanwhile Mandy was having a sweet first look with her dad in the courtyard : )
The red dye on Mandy’s scalp means that she is officially MARRIED!!!
A FAVORITE from the day!!!
And a quick outfit change before the reception!!
Oh, sweet love <3
Do you think Vik’s brother is funny … ?!?? ; )
THANK YOU so much to Vikash + Mandy’s wedding day team!
