Austin Wedding Photography
Wedding Date: July 31, 2010
Photographers: Mariae* and Thurston*
Church: St. Albert the Great - Austin, Texas

Tony and Tam have become a pretty intricate part of my little Austin family. So much so that we spent weeks coming up with the perfect first dance song for them. We shopped for napkins with them. My husband even FOLDED napkins and put little ribbons on them - wherease for our wedding, he only showed up! (Of course, I wasn't a napkin-nazi like Tam). :)

But typically being on the "vendor" side of wedding, Tam and Tony's wedding was a reminder of how crazy the week or month prior to a wedding can get. And since Thurst and I figured they were already going nuts with all the wedding preparations...we thought that they should also include the official National Dance Day dance at their reception. With Thurst and I being So You Think You Can Dance conneisours, we asked Tony and Tam if they would practice the NappyTab dance routine with their wedding party and perform it at the wedding. They agreed - only if we would do it too! It seemed a good idea at the time. A group of us practiced for about two weeks every night at my house...and for sure, this was going to be best routine ever. We even had plan to catch it on video with our 5d Mk2...and Hali drove down from Dallas to shoot this part of the wedding - since Thurst and I were a part of this impromptu dance troupe. Their wedding day came around with much anticipation. Tony even spent the night prior at our house and got ready there! (Yes, I believe he and my husband may be BFF!) Tony and Tam did the entire tea ceremony thing that morning and then we headed to St. Albert the Great. With some time to spare, we decided to call a "last minute" dance rehearsal in the bride's changing room. Yes, right before church. Well, dear stalkers...I'm going to have to confess to you that at this point the story leading up to the actual dance routine is a lot more interesting than the dance. The final outcome of the dance was a total hot mess. We had fun. But it was a mess. I would show you pictures and videos...but ummmm...I think we lost them. :oP C'est la vie. In the meanwhile...enjoy Tony and Tam's beautiful Austin wedding. I certainly did. :)

Sri Lankan Homecoming Party
Party date: June 5, 2010
Photographer: Hali*
Venue: Hotel Zaza, Houston, Texas

The final post from this amazing wedding. :) It's a Sri Lankan tradition to "welcome the bride home" after the newlywed come back from their honeymoon. Well, they didn't get a chance to honeymoon just yet...(although they did go on a fabulous...and I tried desperately to convince them that they needed a professional photographer to go with them)....but they did have their homecoming party! Stalkers, the week following their wedding in Chicago, Rusha and Jay rushed back home to Houston, Texas to throw yet ANOTHER party at the fabulous Hotel Zaza.

Chicago Hindu and Sri Lankan Wedding
Wedding Date: May 30, 2010
Photographers: Thurston* and Mariae*
Wedding Planner: Ali Philips,
Engaging Events by Ali
Venue: Westin Lombard (Illinois)

OMG! When the wedding day finally rolled around...it was gorgeous! It was also the first time that I got to meet Ali with Engaging Events and the best part about Ali - besides her amazing work - is that she holds the room "empty and hostage" UNTIL we get a chance to shoot it. Most of the time, by the time we get to the venue...guests are already milling about...and well, you can't really kick them out for a "decor picture" - so we try to work around it. But Ali spoiled me. Each time the room was turned...she held the room hostage - kicked everyone out and called my cell phone (or got one of her lovely assistants to find me) so I could come down there and shoot to my heart's delight. :)

When I have loved the colors and vibrance of Indian weddings before...Rusha and Jay's wedding really made me fell IN LOVE with it. They not only their Hindu wedding ceremony...they also had a Sri Lankan wedding ceremony to honor Jay's side of the family. And as soon as I saw the reception decor...my heart skipped a beat. Stalkers, we are talking uplighting...pinspotting on each centerpiece and a UT AUSTIN cake to boot! Stalkers, be forewarned...this post contain A TON of wedding eye candy. :)

I started out the morning rolling out of bed....and rolled right into Rusha's hotel room for her getting ready. The perks of staying in the hotel that the wedding is taking place in!

Rusha had henna all the way up to her elbow and halfway up her leg. Plus I absolutely adore all the jewelry and bridal accoutrements.
