Mandeep and Shivraj had an amazing fun-filled multi-day festive Sikh wedding! This blog is their Wedding day that was on a hot summer day at the Fremont, Gurudwara.
The day started bright and early for us as we arrived to capture the beautiful couple getting ready at their respective residences. Mandeep is a such a sweetheart and what we absolutely love about her is her beautiful voice! We can listen to her talk in her melodious voice all day and how can you not fall in love with anyone who has a voice like that, we certainly did!
We got our signature backlit hairspray shot and some shots of her getting ready. Mandeep looked absolutely stunning dolled up by Megan of Beauty by Megan Naik and hair was by Kanchan Kapadne of MeriSakhi Creations. She wore an exquisite lehenga that had this amazing trail and she looked like a perfect modern Punjabi bride! We got shots with her parents and portrait shots of her before we had to leave for the gurudwara.
Shivraj arrived in style in a Rolls-Royce and had a beautiful black horse for his Baraat which we don’t see very often! He looked regal on that horse and we had a fun time capturing his Baraat.
We got creative shots of the couple at the Anand Karaj ceremony, after the ceremony ended we took the couple outside the temple for some quick portrait shots. This was at midday and by this time the temperature rose to 90+ degree Fahrenheit and it was a challenge for the couple to stand out in the hot sun for portrait shots. However, they were troopers and we got some great portrait shots, a mix of creative and off camera flash lighting shots.
After the portraits, we left for their houses for Doli ceremony. The bittersweet moment when the bride leaves her house makes for some raw emotional moments in photography and we are very happy with the shots we got at the Doli ceremony. We proceeded to groom house for their welcoming of the couple by friends and family. We ended the day with some more portrait shots of the couple!
