Christina and Mallik's wedding is not one I will soon forget. First of all, Christina holds my personal record for bride with the most wardrobe changes. She somehow ended up wearing four different gowns that day!
For their traditional Indian Ceremony of course she wore a beautiful sari. This was actually the first Indian Ceremony I have had the pleasure of photographing! Of course, my favorite part of the ceremony was when the bride and groom dumped all of the "blessings" on each other. (AKA, they got to throw things at each other) I love how messy everything got and it's totally expected and celebrated!
After the ceremony, Christina changed into a fun purple Vietnamese dress. As soon as the bride and groom joined the guests for the reception, in came the lion dancers! They ran around and played tricks on people, pulling out chairs and stealing little bits of food. It was a pretty hilarious way to start off the reception.
Next was the bride's white "American" style wedding dress that she wore for the cake cutting and first dance. But my favorite was probably her last dress, the party dress! I love the lace detailing down the gown and on her sleeves.
Be sure to check out all of the gorgeous flowers by Zest Floral Design. I loved all of the orchids!
It was a pretty windy day for a Central Oregon wedding. Wind + Veil = Happy Photographer.
Stephanie and Alden threw a gorgeously sophisticated wedding at The Colony in St Johns.
Sun streamed into the garden and lit her up like an angel at the Historic Deepwood Estate.
The groom wanted to lay his eyes on his bride for the first time as she made her way down the aisle. And she was stunning!
Erika and Marty dreamed of a gorgeous wedding worthy of publication. YU Contemporary was the perfect backdrop.
