Rashmi & Prashant - The Addison Farm Wedding
Everyone told me that Indian weddings are long, grueling days, and that after you capture one you’ll never want to do it again. Well I don’t know what they were talking about because this was one of the most fun weekends of my career.
That might also have to do with the fact that Rashmi and Prashant are two of the nicest, sweetest, caring people I’ve ever met and always made sure I was taken care of whether it was water, food, or even taking a seat every once in awhile.
While they didn’t hire me for the entire three day event, I did get to participate in the rehearsal dinner (not pictured) and the all day ceremony & reception.
We started the day (or should I say super early morning) with sunrise photos on the gorgeous Addison Farm, where I found the most beautiful, Narnia-esque nook. We took in the cows, goat, sheep, and other farm animals while capturing all the amazing details of their ensembles.
From there Prashant celebrated with family and wedding party for the traditional Baraat. While it was entertaining to watch everyone party hard at 10am, the ceremony was my favorite part. I loved being able to see a ceremony where time and consideration is taken, as well as the combining of two families. And there are games and ice cream so there’s a lot to really love about them.
Afterwards lunch was served before the send off as husband and wife in which Rashmi shared a super emotional goodbye with her parents.
A few hours and one outfit change later and we were back to the reception hall to eat, give toasts, Rashmi’s cousins surprised her with a dance, and then sparklers around 12:30.
This was definitely such a unique experience that I can’t wait to capture again in the future but until then enjoy this recap.
