Their fairytale love story started when Paul offered to carry Puja’s books back to her dorm from a class they shared. A simple gesture for a beautiful girl wearing a cast. Puja was recovering from a dislocated shoulder and any weight on her shoulder brought shooting pain. She happily obliged and Paul; the gentleman that he was walked Puja home, carried her books and offered his wit and charm. Soon their walks from class detoured to get a bite to eat where they laughed, joked and began to fall in love.
Fast forward five years and their fairytale love story writes a chapter that has a beautiful wedding. Puja and Paul were married at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly Virginia in a beautiful outdoor fall wedding filled with fall colors, rustic décor and a gorgeous flower draped wedding.
On the day of their wedding Puja began getting ready in the bridal suite with her bridesmaids and family helping her get ready. She had a stunning gold and Red Lengha offset with Toms Shoes that looked fantastic. Paul was on the opposite side of the hotel relaxing with his groomsmen sipping exotic beer before the beautiful ceremony started.
The ceremony was a gorgeous outdoor Hindu ceremony that united eastern and western traditions. Upon the completion of the Hindu ceremony including the walk around the fire, seven steps and the reading of the phere’s. The couple intertwined Western traditions such as the exchanging of rings and a first kiss that brought the cultures together and made the wedding truly unique and memorable.
Following the wedding was a stunning reception transcending the rustic elements and beautiful flower theme. The reception was filled with heartfelt speeches, beautiful Bollywood dances and friends and family celebrating all night long.
Puja and Paul we had an absolutely amazing time photographing your wedding and we hope you love the images as much as we do!
