Over the past few years she found herself falling in love with him over and over again. It began with his sense of humor and charming good looks. Then it was his cooking skills and love for Harry Potter 😉 But more importantly it was his love for her. It was his ability to make her feel like they were the only two people in a crowded room. His ability to cheer her up just by his sheer presence. His ability to love her in good times, bad times, and every way possible. He was hers and it was meant to be.
They came over one Spring evening with Taco Bell in hand and list of photography questions. We had meet Jay and Roshni once before at their initial consult. From the moment they told us their love story and their vision of not just their wedding day but their marriage in general, we knew there was something special about these two.
Jay and Roshni chose to see each other before the ceremony to ensure they got the important couples photos that they will cherish forever. We separately took them to a secret meeting place, away from family, friends and the world. The expression on Jay’s face when he saw Roshni for the first time in her beautiful wedding lengha was priceless. His eyes glistened as he smiled wider, it was officially the happiest day of his life. Roshni looked stunning in a gorgeous red lengha. Everything about her was breathtaking from her traditional jewelry and delicate hairpiece to the smile on her face; Roshni simply glowed.
Jay and Roshni’s wedding ceremony and reception took place at the North Bethesda Marriott. Their wedding day kicked off with Jay’s lively barat. The anticipation escalated as Jay’s friends and family danced behind the hotel with speakers blaring Hindi music. Family and friends dancing feverously and Jay looked on with heartfelt enjoyment. Roshni’s family excitedly greeted their new extended family and welcomed them to the wedding ceremony.
Jay and Roshni’s traditional Hindu ceremony was masterfully conducted in the lavishly decorated grand ballroom. Prabha’s team left no detail behind from the stunning mandap to the ornate statues welcoming their guests to the wedding festivities.
Their reception was no less extravagant, as the guests oooed and ahhed at the all the intricate details, our lovely couple changed their clothes, retouched makeup and prepared for their grand entrance. Roaring applause, cheers and absolute joy greeted our couple to the party of their lives. After several fun choreographed dances, heartfelt speeches and touching stories, Jay and Roshni danced the night away surrounded by friends and family. It was truly a night to remember.
Jay and Roshni, we are so happy we were given the opportunity to not only photograph your wedding but to make new friends. Here’s to more taco bell nights, laughs and good times!
