We’ve had this blog entry waiting in the wings for a bit, and I’m really excited to make this “Anuja+Rishi Week” over here at Clark+Walker :) The video trailer is being polished as I type this and will be blogged towards the end of the week in addition to all of these photos. Get strapped in and grab some popcorn because this is a SICK wedding!
Anuja looked beautiful in the morning when we arrived, and when we saw Kris Kellogg we knew why the hair and make up looked so great.
We loved everything Anuja wore all weekend, and weren’t surprised to hear these were all from Mumbai, India. Our job is easy when we get brides like this :)
Rishi was not to be out done though!
We work a lot with Rose Events
, who continually impress us each and every year, and once again the details at this wedding were spot on
When it was time for the baraat people were ready to get down! I love baraats like this, I wanted one for our wedding last year :)
of Rose Events Entertainment made sure the music was pumping as we walked around the streets of downtown Rochester
Once the baraat was finished we headed inside for the wedding ceremony. It was a bit “modernized” with the entire bridal party coming down the aisle during the processional and I’ve been seeing more of this lately.
I love this moment between these two
I have to admit, when I found out the ceremony was going to be inside the Rochester Convention Center
I was eager to see how it would turn out. That had to present some challenges to work with, but as you can see it turned out phenomenal
Because the ceiling was essentially a huge skylight we were able to get some awesome natural daylight while still staying in the air conditioning (good move guys)
One of my favorites from the ceremony
Once the vidai started we saw some tears and some heartfelt moments which I LOVE shooting. I also loved shooting the ’58 Bently they drove away in though too, that was pimp!
During cocktail hour I loved the idea they used for people to leave them messages. Since they were both doctors they had people fill out these prescription cards telling them what they needed for a happy life and then people left them on a couple trees they had set up
After that it was time for us to capture some portraits in the end of the day butta light. I knew from our awesome e-shoot together that portrait time was going to be fun with these 2
The comfort level in front of the camera made this an awesome session
We’ve worked together with Rose Events enough times for them to just plan in these portraits during this light. Awesome.
Rishi was showing us how he models earlier in the day, but now it’s Anuja’s turn
The reception room looked absolutely awesome, which was no surprise. The entire room was draped in fabric and looked very elegant. Elegant Affairs
gave us some great centerpieces, Premier Pastry
did the cake, and Moghul Catering
did the food (which by the way is always some of the best food we get to eat).
I especially loved these shot glasses of milk with cookies on top at the end of the night, such a great idea!
A huge thank you to the happy couple for allowing us to come along for the ride known as your wedding day. We had a blast and can’t wait to also show you the video trailer later this week as well.
