Tanya + Vinit: Married!

September 28, 2009

Tanya and Vinit are truly amazing people. Since my first meeting with them, I knew I was going to really like them. They are happy, fun and totally in love with each other. Being there on their wedding day, was truly enjoyable, and a privilege for me. I smiled, laughed behind the lens, and at one point almost cried at the singing of the song composed by the mother of the bride.

Tanya and Vinit declared their love for each other in a jam packed day with not one, but two beautiful ceremonies! A Christian church ceremony with a grand dancing entrance! In the late afternoon, the Baraat preceded the colorful and beautiful Indian ceremony.

Groomsmen (minus one) looking sharp!

We know Tanya really wished she could’ve danced to the altar, but walking down the aisle with dad is priceless.

So happy to see the groom!

The groom was asked to put on the ring on his bride’s fingers, instead, he pulls out the handkerchief to wipe his face. A roar of laughter followed in the audience.

Baraat. Traditionally the groom goes to the bride’s house on a horse, accompanied by singing and dancing bridal party. Talk about a grand entrance!

I think this is when the priest told Vinit to follow Tanya. This symbolizes that for big decisions in their lives, Tanya has the final say :)

It’s always a great idea to allocate some time before the ceremony for some great pictures like the one follows. I think the foliage matched their wedding colors pretty well!

We went to Gas Works Park for pictures.

John took a quick shot posing the bride and groom while I was busy taking headshots of individual members of the bridal party.
