Happy Hump Day everyone,
It has been quite a heatwave here in Los Angeles and cooling down is quite a challenge. I hope everyone is either staying indoors with a ice cold drink or out lounging at the beach!
With most of my work caught up, I can finally continue on updating this wedding blog and for all those who waited patiently, I can present Tusli and Mihir’s wedding photographs from their third and final day of their huge Indian wedding bonanza here at Fairmont Hotel in San Jose! It was a cool New Year’s day (yes, lagging on this wedding post) when Tulsi and Mihir invited all their family, friends, and friends of family to Fairmont Hotel to celebrate the joining of their marriage and their families. There were so many colors from all their guests’ attire and there was even a horse that chauffeured Mihir to Fairmont Hotel to receive Tulsi! The wedding guests danced across Main Street with Mihir and let loose for the entire public to see. While the boys and the rest of the wedding party danced away to the music outside, Tulsi and her ladies calmly enjoyed their breakfast during their makeup session. Since there were so many events that took place during the wedding, Geoff and I had to split a couple times to photograph the wedding party downstairs, Tulsi and her ladies, and the family photos! There was not a moment wasted where there was something fun to photograph and enjoy. Once Tulsi and her wedding bridal party were finished, they paraded downstairs for everyone to see and for Mihir to receive her. Throughout the process, it was an extremely touching moment with so much emotions around.
The alter where the wedding ceremony commenced was eye catching in itself. Their wedding alter was beautifully decorated with flowers and vines all over. The photos below showed a few nice snap shots of their wedding details. There were multiple rituals during the wedding ceremony; each significant in their own way. After the wedding ceremony concluded, all the wedding guests made their way to cocktail hour to mingle while Geoff and I had some time to spare for a nice portrait session with just the wedding party. Despite near subzero weather, the wedding party were real troopers and powered through the cold with laughter and pure adrenaline as Geoff and I tried to make each wedding photo count as our cameras snapped away! Once the wedding party photos were finished, we concentrated some nice wedding photos of just Tulsi and Mihir. Mihir held Tulsi in so closely not only because of love, but it was SO cold!!!
Of course, with all the wedding photos wrapped up, Tulsi and Mihir rewarded themselves back at the reception hall with all their wedding guests and hors d’oeuvres while they warmed themselves up. During the reception, there were so many dance performances and skits to entertain all the wedding guests during dinner. After everyone at the wedding had their fill, the dance floor opened up for everyone to show off their own special grooves. Literally everyone got off their seats and danced the night away! Imagine about 500+ wedding guests on the dance floor at the same time; it was a real sight. Without further adieu, enjoy Tulsi and Mihir’s wedding photographs presented at Fairmont Hotel in San Jose.
San Jose, CA
Now that is a sweet wedding cake!!!
During the performances, I thought this following wedding photograph hits the heart.
Congratulations again to the both of you, Tulsi and Mihir. It was definitely a real blast to be part of your wedding and record your big day one photo at a time!
