Day three of Shalin and Hema’s wedding celebration concludes with Hema donning her final ceremonial gown, Shalins Baraat, their marriage ceremony and tearful Vidai farewell. Shaking Hands Productions was by our side once again providing outstanding video documentation. You can view their video trailer of Shalin and Hema’s celebration HERE. Jason and I were also assisted by our friend and talented photographer Kevin Zhan.


For his Baraat, Shalin arrived to the Cultural Center in a gorgeous black Rolls Royce.

Shalin’s parents and sister.

Our last day with Shalin and Hema was a kaleidoscope of emotions. The morning was full of smiles, laughter and anticipation for the wedding. After the ceremony and lunch, Hema walked out of the Cultural Center with her father and Shalin. They were accompanied by Hema’s sisters, mother, family and friends for the Vidai. This is when the time has come for the bride to say goodbye to her family and leave with her groom. This occasion was met with a copious amount of tears, especially from Hema’s father, who was so happy for her marriage but also very sad that he was going to miss her.

Many times when I was a little girl, I’d dream and wonder about the person I would fall in love with and marry someday.  How long in time would we wait before our paths crossed, and where would we meet? Ah, the mysteries of love; It was so fun to dream!

The best thing about every wedding is the fact that two soul mates have found each other. They, along with their friends and family, can at last rejoice and go living the rest of their lives together. That thought alone will bring me to tears.

When it comes to love, I like believing in destiny.

Noah and Nora were married at Ash Lawn-Highland on a surprisingly brisk April day. The colors of the grey, turbulent sky loomed over green grass, and together they were gorgeous. Adding in Nora with her custom Wai-Ching gown and red Fluevogs, and you had nothing less than awesome. Virginia Moore officiated a lovely ceremony that included hand fast and breaking of a glass underneath a chuppah canopy.

Can I just say that Harvest Moon Catering is amazing?

Nora’s brother-in-law and his band, the Free Union Band played the night away. It started to rain right before the reception ended, and the guests lit and released sky fire chinese lanterns up into the dark sky. It was a beautiful sight to see (check out the last shot)!
