We met Saira & John just a few short months ago. They planned a Thursday wedding at the The Cork Factory Hotel and were preparing for their guests to arrive from all over the world! Six years in the making, the date finally arrived and so did the heat :) I guess it added to the tradition of an Indian wedding ;)
Their wedding had so many brilliant colorful details! From the stunning flowers to the intricately detailed saris to the eye catching lantern feature at their reception, everywhere you looked there was color and life and joy. And they carried that joy with them throughout the day and into the beginning of their marriage. They had a wonderful celebration with their relatives and friends who came from far and wide to be with them!
Gold shoes and their stunning invitation.
Saira’s reception sari and bling. The Sari is one of a kind from India.
A prayer with John before the ceremony.
I think he’s excited to see his bride!
Such a sweet moment between mother and daughter.

Getting some direction on where the rings go ;)
They had a very meaningful ceremony!
The new Mr & Mrs!!
Yep, they’re pretty happy about that ;)

After changing into their traditional garb, we wandering around Central Market for some pictures of the two of them.
And we had some fun.
Aren’t they stunning?!
A quiet moment.

John kept encouraging us to take more pictures of his beautiful bride because, well, she’s stunning! Thanks to Plum Salon & Spa for hair and makeup.
Saira & John created a wall of lanterns at their reception. They used the patio area just outside of the ballroom at the Cork Factory and it was fabulous!
I love the gorgeous colors they chose, it really stands out in the ballroom. And check out that cake by The Bakers Table!
Love the glowing uplighting from Shumaker.
The milk ceremony.
And now time for dancing. The dance floor was just packed, Klock Entertainment kept the room full of energy!
Cutting that stunning cake! I love how the details tie into the decor so perfectly.
We then stole the couple away for a few closing pictures for the night. Here is that great lantern feature.
They had a perfect night!
Sent off with fire ;)
Congratulations Saira & John. We loved being a part of your special day :)
And thank you to Nathan for your awesome photography skills and stepping in as second shooter, we truly appreciate it and love working with you!
