If you are a regular visitor to our blog, you probably remember the engagement photo shoot in San Francisco with an unusual phenomenon of sea foam that we posted a few months ago.
Fast forward to April and it was time for that lovely couple’s big day.
Akansha and Ankit met on an online dating app, Dil Mil and the match was pure destiny as Akansha put it, so for those singles looking to find their perfect match, perhaps Dil Mil is your answer. 🙂
Our happy couple was super excited to have found each other and were looking forward with great anticipation to their wedding day.
Although , the bridal suite at San Mateo Marriott blocks some of the beautiful window light that comes through, because of the drapery, we still managed to get some amazing getting ready shots. Akansha glowed in her bright red bridal lehenga and stunning statement fashion jewelry and gold and pearl details on her heels.
After the first look, we got some romantic and candid portraits of the couple. Baarat was next with lots of dancing and music. The garland exchange was a fun event with family members lifting the bride and groom to do the garland exchange.
After lunch, Akansha changed into her reception outfit, a beautiful sliver and grey gown with a hair and makeup change and Ankit changed into a suit.
Ankit waited for Akansha to do his hair, this was really cute and something we don’t see at most weddings. Scroll down to see this particular shot.
We got quick getting ready shots and some romantic shots in the room and then moved outside to get more shots.
Grand entrance was followed by first dance and cake cutting. We always take our couples getting married at SanMateo Marriott to get our signature backlit fountain shot. Akansha and Ankit were more than happy to oblige and we got some beautiful portraits.
The Night ended with great music by the DJ and lots of dancing on the dance floor!
