There were a plethora of items that made Mala swoon over Alex throughout their nine year relationship. It was his ability to quote every line of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy mimicking the characters voices and intonations, his towering height that forced Mala to always stand on her tippy toes even when wearing three inch heels when trying to kiss him. But it was mostly his ability to always make her smile that won her heart.
Mala and Alex were high school sweethearts sneaking out to Mr. Changs Chinese Restaurant, hiking up and down the trails in Maryland and always making it a point to go see the latest science fiction movies. Nine years later they were still best friends, laughing at each other’s jokes, bantering playfully and never letting go of each other. Their relationship, love and excitement never faded and was exactly what Alex wanted in a wife.
Mala and Alex’s beautiful Washington DC Indian Wedding took place at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, VA. The morning was dawned with Mala idly handing out death threats to her bridesmaids if they weren’t ready in time, smiling uncontrollably reminiscing and recanting stories of their relationship and simply ecstatic for what the day was to unfold.
Alex’s Baarat was brisk and enchanting as Alex’s family danced to Punjabi music eloquently choreographed by Live Sounds Entertainment and affixed with a Dhol player. Upon completion the Hindu ceremony began with Alex chanting Sanskrit as he awaited his beautiful fiancé and soon to be wife. Mala was nothing but smiles jostling with Alex and enjoying every moment of the wedding.
The reception was nothing but smiles and laughter transitioning to a party that no one wanted to see end. Mala and Alex’s families gave heartfelt speeches that caused the bride and groom to shed a few tears. Once the speeches were complete the night regaled into a party that no one wanted to see end.
Mala and Alex, we had an absolutely amazing time photographing your wedding and we hope you love the images as much as we do.
