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.
I had such a wonderful time photographing this jewelry! This was my first indian wedding and I immediately fell in love with the decadent jewels and beading. I also COULD NOT STOP photographing their rings!!
Before Ashanka got into her dress, I had a quick moment to pull her aside for this silhouette. I LOVE how it turned out!
Â Â Â Joey made his entrance on horseback for the Baraat (groom’s wedding processional).Â As he rode in, guests and family were dancing and cheering to the beat of the drum.
After Joey made his entrance, the guests assembled to welcome Ashanka in.
Â Before changing for their reception, Ashanka + Joey bid farewell to their families with a Vidai ceremony. This emotional moment between mother and daughter is one of my favorite images of the day.
Shoutout to Khirsten Echols of Intentional Events and More for the beautiful setup, and flawlessly coordinating through the day. She was amazing!
All of the gorgeous flowers from the ceremony and reception were crafted by the talented Corrie of 333 Designs.
I loved this gorgeous cake by Aunt Bea’s Bakery & Bistro!
Nothing like a groomsman dancing past formal portraits balancing a bag of rolls on his head. #nobigdeal
Before wrapping up for the night, I whisked these two away for a few more portraits.
