Kamesh and Krutika
John Keats said “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”. This wedding will be one of my joys forever.
A wedding I will remember for all my time, as a photographer and otherwise. A splendid event in the midst of the beautiful and green North Carolina River Ridge Gold Club, at Raleigh, the venue was a sight to sore eyes and the festivities to the heart.
Kick starting with the Haldi, the bride and her cousins were all fun, frolic and laughter and they ensured the ceremony was true to its name and drenched Krutika in Haldi.
The ceremony continued with the Ganesha Pooja. The couple sought His blessings to keep their lives free from obstacles.
The couple had a Dandiya night organised later in the day, and between events, we stole some time and managed to get some lovely shots in that scenic landscape.
And finally the D day had arrived.
Though the mantap was a tad bit anglicized, the wedding itself was a true mix of Gujarathi and Tamil elements.
The day began with the bride and groom readying themselves for the big day and we got some lovely pictures of Krutika, in all her attire as the demure diva.

Luckily for us, we also had enough time to photograph the groom with his groomsmen and the bride with her bridesmaids.
And then came the grand Baraat, Kamesh leading them on a horse, a horse so big that it scared most of us!!
Later the bride was escorted by her brothers with a veil above her, hiding her from Kamesh’s curious and inquisitive glances. The poor groom does not get to see his bride till she comes to sit beside him.
They performed the Kanyadanam. Kamesh then tied the Taali, and took Krutika to be his wife, forever.
Post the ceremonies, the happy couple were a package of sheer joy and energy and we got some beautiful pictures at the river side.
Later in the evening, the reception was a lovely event where it was a story night.
The alluring evening seemed like it was customised for us. We got some adorable pictures of the groomsmen and the bridesmaids.
The rain shot of the couple was a spectacular idea that we couldn’t miss.
The sounds of excitement, dance and fireworks filled the night with joy.
Congratulations to the happy couple and wishing you the happiness in life.
