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.
These two lucked out with the only non-rainy day in the entire month of May! I loved Meg’s Dad’s reaction when he first saw her. It wasn’t planned at all, he just found her right after she got dressed and had the sweetest reaction. Their ceremony was filled with lots of laughter as well. Meg surprised everyone at the reception with a dress change to allow for more dancing! It’s very obvious how sweetly Thomas makes Meg feel safe, and how in love they are.
David met Emily the first week of their freshman year. They soon found out that they shared a political science class and he just so happened to save a left handed seat for her every day. They reunited at a tailgate the following fall and continued to grow fond of one another. Emily’s sister said that one evening they were all hanging out and “after a lot of chocolate milk…(right dad?) David said he would one day make her his wife.” And he did at the beautiful Four Seasons Las Colinas.
I am so thankful to share the day with Emily and David. I got to know their families a little better and they are truly top notch families. You could feel the love they all share for one another. When did I really know Emily was the perfect bride for me to capture? Obviously in our first meeting, but the deal was sealed when her and all her bridesmaids danced their hearts out to *Nsync at the reception with as much enthusiasm as I did when I went to their no strings attached world tour. #nsync4life
Other than that I just loved and appreciated Emily and David’s perspective on their wedding day. They rolled with the punches when the wedding got moved indoor last minute because of rain, and maintained a happy outlook throughout the day. When I asked them what they were most excited about when it came to their wedding day, they said they were most excited to be in the same room and share the night with all of their most loved and favorite people.
