Mayflower Hotel Indian Wedding
They met in an elevator… Seema and Kanad met seven years ago when they lived in the same building in Reston, VA. With parking spots close to each other, they often found themselves on the elevator at the same time making small talk about the weather or current events. At first they were just “elevator friends” but once Seema moved out of the building, a friendship blossomed. Kanad, as the chairperson for the HOA (as he put it), felt obligated to make himself available for debriefing or post moving drinks. The two became friends with playful quips, the occasional cat video and the occasional happy hour before Kanad finally asked her out on a date. He cooked his specialty—pasta with Italian sausage—which was hard for Seema to resist. Several months of dating ensued, but a connection was there from the start!
After a few years of dating and her vew own HOA chairperson he finally proposed! Anyone that knows Seema knows she is hard to surprise. Kanad had to be swift and spontaneous to pull off the perfect proposal. Family and friends were in on the surprise and were lurking around the corner while Kanad popped the question. They were on the rooftop overlooking beautiful Washington, D.C. and he professed his love and described the life he wanted with her -she said yes! And a celebratory party took place right after where Seema and Kanad surrounded themselves with love, laughter and soon to be happily ever after. It was the best day of her life…and his of course.
Fast forward a few months and Seema and Kanad’s wedding weekend was a mix of glamour and old world Bollywood. They started things off with their sangeet filled with surprise dances by both the bride and the groom, mehndi ladies making the families festive and where family and friends danced the night away munching on food from the streets of India and enjoyed adorable cookies with mendhi designs handmade by Seema’s family.
The morning of their wedding Seema’s closest friends kept her company as she got ready, telling jokes and reminiscing. Her excitement was contagious and her smile never faded as Seema and Kanad promised each other everything. Their love was radiant as their families and friends laughed, cried and danced the night away at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC.
Seema and Kanad photographing and filming your lovingly wedding weekend was pure joy for the Photographick team! You were surrounded by so much love and laughter. We are so happy for you both and look forward to watching your love grow.
