We had a great time photographing Subha & Michal’s wedding extravaganza – they were legally married a few months ago in a small civil ceremony so these two ceremonies were actually weddings #2 & #3 for them! Married 3 times over – pretty awesome I think!
Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: wedding extravaganza/marathon with friends and family
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: dancing with friends and family from around the world
Groom: first dance
Best wedding related decision: venues – doubled as indoor/outdoor sites for photoshoot(s)
Favourite detail: multiple outfit changes!
Advice for future brides & grooms: bride to other brides – designate tasks to others on the day-of!!; groom to other grooms – be prepared for the photo marathon and go with the flow
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? designate people to pack items (picture frames, guestbook, leftover favours, gifts, etc.) that need to be taken home from the reception hall at the end of the night
Best surprise of the day: our spontaneous, non-choreographed first dance (we ran out of time to rehearse!)
