If this Indian/Taiwanese wedding celebration doesn’t make you smile or tap your feet, you have no soul. Ok,  that was a little harsh, but seriously….

There is something mesmerizing about a wedding of this scale.  The way that Andrew & Dhruti’s wedding took over the whole venue and was the main focus of the day was incredible.  Even Andrew & Dhruti were taken aback by the scale and value of both the material decorations and the amount of support from their family & friends.  Beautiful countryside venue, traditional bridegroom entrance on a horse, gorgeous Indian traditions (Mehndi), an epic pre-ceremony parade followed by surprise choreographed dance sequences at the reception (i.e. DRAGONS!).  There is also something spectacular in the way that the love of two people brings two families together in the way that Andrew and Dhruti’s does. No one wanted the party to end! It was a sunny day not only filled with love and the blending of two families…but of two cultures and heritages. It was an honor to document it all for you guys Andrew & Dhruti…enjoy and congrats!

 Things we LOVED about this wedding (in no particular order):

1. The Familial support; Andrew’s brother learned a new language to great the guests!
2. A pre ceremony parade complete with the groom on a white horse.
3. A Dragon!!
4. Dancing…and more dancing
5. Floating lanterns at the end of the night
