Weddings: DC – Indian wedding and Greek wedding photo weekend

Time for us to take a “Less is More” approach to blogging. I sat down to pour though some of the thousands of images from this amazing 2 day event and finally decided that if I chose all the images I loved the viewers might never arrive to the bottom of the post! So here we go.. Laura and Sunny blew us away with an amazing double wedding weekend! It was so much fun I can’t stand it. Day one was wonderful Indian wedding (Hindu) in DC and Day two was a unique Serbian Orthodox (Greek) experience. It rained a bit and it was HOT but nothing stopped these guys from getting the weddings they were hoping for.

Photographers: John + Kimberly

First up…the Baarat!  The clouds parted for just long enough to dance our way up to the hotel to meet the bride.  We LOVE this part and you can tell from the images, that they do too…

DAY 2!!!  Greek Orthodox wedding!  One of the things that we loved so much about this amazing couple was the way they so respected and embraced each other’s upbringings and traditions.
