Where to start! Ashley is one of the most dynamic Indian brides that we have met! Totally against the grain in a great way! When we first met Ashley at a bridal show in February hosted by the Sheraton National and Priti Verma with L’Ambience she just radiated joy! We will never forget when she came up to our table and said that she knew that when she was getting married that we were going to photograph her wedding after seeing our work before from various events. When she told us her wedding date of July 4th weekend we did not have the heart to tell her that we had been planning a trip to India for the month! When we were heading home after the show there was something about Ashley’s personality and her enthusiasm that Srinu and I said we will see, if she calls and we hit it off then we could possibly push our trip to the winter. Well no doubt she rang up and now she is finally married! And yes as she said at the show, we in fact did shoot her wedding!
Two of our most favorite images from her wedding was that of Ashley and Kunal honoring Ashley’s father who has passed. The images to us are somewhat evoking as we were there to see how deeply he was missed. If you notice in the two images we captured the one appears to, through our eyes, show the heavens shining down on them while the other one in which Ashley is trying to hold back her tears, there is what appears to be a shining star (Reflected light.) on her head that to us caught our eye and somewhat felt as if it signified a blessing, a sign of peace that although not in person but through spirit her father was indeed there with her on that day.
Her decor was stunning as the colors were not quite as traditional. They were uniquely their own. Her selection of decor for her Sangeet, Ceremony, and her Reception were both breathtaking and distinct in color. As always the North Bethesda Marriott is also one of our favorite places to photograph weddings! The decor for this affair was provided by Sachi Sood with Partyland. We will update Ashley’s talented hair and make-up artist information once I find the info as they both rocked it! The outfit colors that she had chose for her Sangeet and her Lehenga for her reception were so fitting with her bubbly personality! Oh not to leave out Kunal as he kept us laughing the entire time! None the less as he is so Ashley’s style! LOL! Congratulations and we love you guys!
