We felt so lucky to document not just one but two amazing wedding days for Melina and Ravin, and today we get to share the first one with you! On the Thursday before their big day at the Kapok (coming to the blog soon!) they gathered their family and friends for a traditional Hindu ceremony. And even though it was a gray and rainy day outside, the Crystal Ballroom was bursting with energy and color. It was stunning and was so much fun to capture!
We always love shooting these kinds of ceremonies, not only because they are full of so many gorgeous details but because there are so many heart felt traditions throughout. We adored how at one point in the ceremony all of the parents came up to stack their hands on top of Mel and Rav’s to bless their marriage. It was just one super sweet moment of so many. And after the ceremony the rain had finally subsided, so we got to sneak out for some quick night shots which we are just OBSESSED with. Their colorful outfits combined with the glisten of the wet ground made for some seriously stunning stuff! Nights like this aaaaalllllmost convince us that we like shooting in the dark as much as golden hour. Almost.
Mel and Rav, both of these days were such a blast and we can’t wait to share so many more to come!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
