She was a stylista; always wearing the most beautiful outfits; frequenting the most chic clubs and learning about the latest trends. He was a California boy at heart, laid back, relaxed and the most comfortable in a pair of board shorts and a T-shirt. They were opposites from the onset; yet a perfect fit.
The moment these two get together you understand exactly why they were meant to be; Karishma’s smile never ceases and the love Barath has for Karishma can easily be seen through his big beautiful eyes. They talk at about 100 miles a minute, laugh, joke and smile throughout. These two were meant to be; it was a central theme throughout their wedding and can be said of any couple on their wedding day. But these two were different; they molded perfectly into each others arms, held each other ever so tightly and never stopped smiling.
Karishma and Barath met though mutual friends and had their first date at the Big Hunt(we had their engagement session here as well!) where Barath talked about his job, life in DC and taught Karishma a thing or two about beer. Karishma was intoxicated in him; they talked, laughed and never looked back.
A few years later they were getting ready for their wedding at the Bethesda Hyatt. Karishma had all her bridesmaids swarming around her as she got ready. They laughed, tried to figure out how to put on Sari’s, made sure Karishma was smiling, sipped campaign and reminisced about Karishma and Barath’s relationship.
Barath enjoyed time with is family, having his father help him get ready, provide marriage advice, hint at children and simply be there with him as he got ready.
Once the two of them looked absolutely stunning; we were able to do a quick 30 minute session with just the two of them. Her stunning lengha took Barath’s breath when he saw her. His eyes told her he loved her as they shed a tear of happiness to finally be together on their wedding day. As they smiled and held each other we photographed away and got some absolutely gorgeous imagery of the two of them.
The ceremony was a traditional Hindu ceremony with a beautiful Mandap and stunning floral decor provided by L’ambiance. As they made their rounds around the fire the strength of their grips as they held each other grew stronger and stronger. Their smiles progressively became bigger and bigger until they were officially married and Barath was finally able to call Karishma “Wifey.”
The reception was filled with speeches of how they were meant to be, their different personalities but more than anything the way they complete each other and their undeniable love for each other. Once the speeches ended these two danced the night away in each others arms.
Karishma and Barath we hope you had an fantastically amazing time in Italy and it was an absolute pleasure photographing your wedding and we know you are holding hands and smiling while you read this.
