Robyn & Sush // Wedding Day 2

I really hope  you guys really enjoy the images from day 2 of this crazy wedding extravaganza. I think there are some really special frames in here!

 Starting with this one. Isn’t the light gorgeous? A+ to Rob.

Oh, P.S. If you’re a shoe lover you might want to sit down. Things are going to get crazy. These are Robyn’s morning shoes.

And these are her evening shoes.

 Sush’s family comes from Kerala in South India. They are members of the Malankara Orthodox Church. It was our first time shooting a ceremony like this, and it was amazing. Sure, we had to stand for nearly 2 hours, but completely worth it. It was held in the stunning St. Josaphat’s Ukranian Catholic Church.

Waiting to start.

The ceremony was held primarily in Malayalam, their native language. That meant we didn’t generally know what was going on, but here they are blessing this chain for Sush. I believe it is called the “Blessing of the Crown” ceremony, as they used to use gold crowns.

Sush’s father swinging the thurible, which is filled with charcoal and incense.

Love this one of Robyn’s bridesmaids carrying her dress. When there is a combining of cultures in one frame (mendhi with a Western wedding dress) I just get so excited.

We returned to Sush’s parents house for a milk ceremony. Sush’s mom served them chocolate milk.

And they drank it. And that was pretty much the extent of the ceremony! Sometimes they are complex, and sometimes just very simple :)

Then it was time for some cool shots with this stunning bridal party.

And I’ll finish up with a couple shots from their reception. Truly the most gorgeous reception decor we’ve ever seen. Huge props to the amazing people at Elegant Touches for their unbelievable work.

Sush waiting as Robyn gets ready for the reception. Doesn’t he look crazy cool?

Oh yeah. There were acrobats. It was insane.

Oh man, what a wedding. I started giggling when I was looking at the rings! So so so nice.
