We’ve waited six months for this wedding day, and we’re thrilled to share some images from this Saturday’s celebration with Maya and Pierre.
Last November, we were honored to join this amazing couple for their engagement party at the Philadelphia Museum of Art– an evening so fantastic that we (of Dreamlite) couldn’t stop talking about it for weeks on end. Indeed, they were that kind of couple, and their party was that kind of awesome. Fast forward to this past weekend, where we documented Maya and Pierre’s catholic wedding ceremony at the Church of Saint Isidore in Quakertown, PA. Following their ceremony was a lunch reception at the Melt Restaurant, a new-americana food experience housed in an upscale setting. Thinking about their food still makes us salivate. Their evening celebration was one giant party, hosted at the bride’s familys’ estate, filled with hundreds of friends & family, delicious indian food (including a charcoal oven for fresh baked naan), and a whole lot of celebrating. From choreographed dance performances to comical music presentations by Pierre’s relatives (they flew in from France!), this truly unique wedding celebration could not be properly summarized by words alone.
Did we mention that our groom Pierre, a Parisian native, self-studied Hindi throughout the course of their dating life? If that isn’t a mark of real commitment, we don’t know what is. Better yet, when you check out the henna photos below… a word of advice: find someone who reads Hindi and see if you can find something ‘hidden’ within the henna.
For now, we’ll leave you with a whole set of teaser photos. Please enjoy them below, and follow us on facebook for more updates to come!
You may recall the surprise proposal that I (Jon) photographed back in January. We’re happy to write that, as of this past weekend, our friends Steve and Tesh have officially tied the knot!!
This time around, Dreamlite swapped roles. Howie had the opportunity of photographing their beautiful wedding day, while I had the supreme honor of being Steve’s Best Man. Having seen my share of wedding days unfold through the viewfinder of my cameras, it was really refreshing to see a wedding celebration unfold through a new perspective. Instead of photographing others running errands, making calls, grabbing breakfast, joining in on prayer circles, it was finally my turn to be a part of it all. It really felt like I was giving away a brother that day. In a nutshell, being there for their wedding day was exciting, anxious, stressful, teary-eyed, and simply beautiful.
Check out the teasers photos by Howie… and to Steve and Tesh, love you guys a ton. (P.S. Tesh, I said it once and I’ll say it again, welcome to the family.)
