Check out this gorgeous invitation suite.

 

All the bride’s jewelry on her wedding day was a gift from her mother. I thought it was only appropriate to have her mom hold her ceremony jewelry before putting it on her daughter.  Absolutely stunning!

Sweet mama.

The wedding day started early for these sweet bridesmaids.  Pretty sure this toast to the bride was around 7am!  Cheers!

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Off to see her groom for their First Look!

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the First Look we walked along the coast for some early morning bride & groom portraits.

 

Love this one of Natasha on the right!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So much fun with these girls!  I got to spend the whole weekend with them and it was truly a joy!

 

 

 

 

Sweetest little flower girl.  She was a trooper the whole weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baraat time!  I wish this could be a tradition with every wedding.  The groom is welcomed into the bride’s family with a parade.  Full of dancing, drums, and music.

 

 

 

 

 

Natasha’s dad having all kinds of fun!

Welcoming Chuck into the family which will lead right into the ceremony.

 

 

 

 

Beautiful ceremony overlooking the ocean.

 

 

 

 

The crowd literally gasped when they saw Natasha come over the hill for her grand entrance.

Mama waiting at the end of the aisle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Married!

 

 

 

 

Off to enjoy lunch with friends and family and then it is back in the evening for a beautiful “Starry Night” themed reception.

I love these reception getting ready portraits.  Such a different feel from the morning.

 

 

One of my favorites on the left.

 

 

 

Might be my favorite portrait of Natasha the entire day!  Such a beautiful bride.

 

 

 

Then it was back inside to enjoy cocktail hour which lead right into their reception.

It is amazing what the team of vendors did to this room.  I could not believe it when I walked in the ballroom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can we all pause and take in this first dance.  I mean wow!

Framer!

 

 

 

Bollywood performers between toasts!  Very entertaining.

 

 

How sweet is this photo of Chuck and his mama on the left.  Love Love!

 

 

 

 

Immediately after the cake cutting it was time to dance the night away!

 

Dad!! Having so much fun while the groomsmen took him for a shoulder ride.

 

 

 

 

Natasha & Chuck, it was truly a joy to photograph your wedding weekend.  Enjoy your honeymoon in Africa and I can’t wait to see Chuck’s safari pics :).
