Vidya & Dion
October 11th, 2008
Georgia Aquarium

I felt so honored to do my first wedding at the Georgia Aquarium! It is one of my favorite places in all of Atlanta. Vidya and Dion put on one amazing reception in their grand ballroom. There were Indian dancers during dinner, music and crazy dancing that went on till 1am, one of the best desserts I have ever had, and oh ya, whale sharks swimming in the background. It was amazing to be there and to be a part.

I think that one could make a movie based on Vidya and Dion’s wedding, with this reception as the grand finale. I will always remember Vidya and Dion’s unbelievable weekend.

Vidya and Dion didn’t just have a wedding, they had an event. The weekend was full of so much celebrating that I will need to do 2 posts and 2 different galleries. Friday they had their Hindu and Muslim wedding ceremonies, Saturday was their Georgia Aquarium reception.

I arrived at Vidya’s parents house early on Friday to photograph some of the preparations. The first thing I noticed was that their garage had been turned into a kitchen. Vidya’s family was cooking so much food that they had huge pots spread out around the garage and they where stirring not with spoons but rather large sticks. They were making Indian curry and roti for the ceremony. They asked me to try and wow, it was some of the best food I have ever had! I love Indian spices and roti has always been one of my favorite foods. It was a great way to start off my shoot!

Vidya was stunning. She adorned herself in the traditional way with all the traditional clothing and jewelry. She was so beautiful she definitely had everyone’s eyes in the room. The ceremonies were full of family, color, curry, and lots ands lots of smiles. I had a great time.

Catie and Gustavo have been friends of ours for a couple of years now. I remember when I heard they were engaged, I was hoping I would get the call about wedding photography. I was so happy when they came over to book me. They are both happy and beautiful people that have a way of lighting up anyone around. I wanted to have the chance to capture this for them to see. So thank you Catie and Gus, I had a blast at your amazing wedding.

The wedding day was beautiful. I started the day hanging out with the girls while they had their makeup and hair done up. I knew right when I walked in that it was going to be a great day. The room was full of music and the girls were are full of smiles, laughs, and hugs. Little did I know that all those smiles didn’t compare the massive grin on Gustavo’s face the first time he saw Catie. He had the look of pure joy. It was unforgettable.
