Ashanka + Joey // Muscle Shoals Indian Wedding

Ashanka + Joey’s Muscle Shoals wedding was nothing short of magnificent. The dresses were beaded and colorful and the ceremony altar was adorned with long chains of crimson flowers and bells. The effect was altogether whimsical and lavish. We began the day early–at 6:45, and I got to work photographing Ashanka’s beautiful gown and details.
