This is a follow up post to Andy and Chantel’s wedding post. I deliver the majority of my images in color, but sometimes black and white just looks so good. I wanted to show some images of these two classic cats in Black and White. It looks good on them.
If I had to sum up Andy and Chantel’s wedding into 3 words, it would be: Joyful, Loving, and Hot! But I guess that’s what happens when you get married in Dallas in the Summer! Seriously though, I wish I could bottle up the joy of Andy and Chantel. There was an exuberant amount of joy and love throughout the whole day. I loved that Andy and Chantel had such a relaxed attitude about their day, and especially that they decided to see each other before the wedding. It gave us plenty of time for un-rushed portraits and simply time for them to be together on their wedding day. Andy is British so it was very awesome that all his “mates” could be there for him. They had people travel from England, Australia, and all over Texas to show their love and support and my oh my did they celebrate! One of my favorite moments was when Andy and his mom had their Mother/Son dance to 2Pac’s “Dear Mama”, and she wore an afro while dancing. It was hilarious and awesome! I am blessed to have met Andy and Chantel, and even luckier to have been the one to document their day.
Nidhin and Sapna had one of the most beautiful and heartfelt weddings and receptions at the St Ann Catholic Parish and the Omni Mandalay Hotel Las Colinas. These two are just a breath of fresh air. They are some of the nicest, most joyful people I have ever met…and smart, and accomplished, I could go on and on! The love and support they have from their families is pretty remarkable too. Even though the wedding day was the first time I’d met their parents, I could really feel how proud they were and how much they adored the spouse their child chose in each other, Nidhin and Sapna. As I revisited these images, it reminded me that they married at the rainiest time of year Dallas has ever seen. It just goes to show that no matter how well you plan, something evidently will go “not according to plan”. It goes to show that the joy you feel on your wedding day, even when life throws a wrench in your dream day, is completely dependent on your attitude. Nidhin and Sapna were perfect examples of having a great attitude despite less than ideal circumstances and weather. They rocked that umbrella during their bride and groom photos and it shows! The attention to detail put into their reception was evident as well. It was all around a beautiful evening.
