Vibrant Ellicott City Indian Wedding

Aug 26, 2021

Vibrant Ellicott City Indian Wedding

I haven’t seen so much color like I did at Supriya and Jake’s vibrant Ellicott City Indian wedding. Everywhere you looked, guests had vibrant, colorful, and bright outfits on. It was quite the view!

I think I may need more Indian weddings in my life!

Not only were the outfits stunning, but the dances they prefer are so beautiful! The way they move their arms and legs to create different shapes is such a performance in and of itself. Then add on the beautiful music and clapping, and you never want it to stop.

It is a memorable experience!

Besides that, Supriya and Jake’s day was amazing. Sadly, due to COVID, their initial wedding plans were scratched, and then the  two of them got married at a courthouse in California! A special day for the two of them, shared virtually with the ones they love! So this big celebration was so important to not just them but to all of their friends and family who weren’t there on the original wedding date!

It may have been a year later, but the celebration was just as big!

Endless amounts of food. Constant chatting and laughter. Fun music to fill the space. And constant memories shared and made. It was so fun to see family get to catch up after so much time apart. It makes me stop and appreciate what an honor I have in this job. I have the privilege to document those moments and capture all the memories from the day.

It truly is an honor!

Supriya and Jake started out the day in their white dress and suit attire. A classic look for their ceremony to express again their love and commitment to one another! And to promise to never let their adventure together end. Then, it was a quick switch into their colorful Indian outfits for the reception entrance! What a stunner it was as they came down the stairs, and their guests saw them for the first time!

I was completely mesmerized as well!

It is just so special to see each of my couples add in the unique characteristics to make their wedding day all about them. Whether is a cultural addition or a furry friend or a favorite place, it tells the story of where they have come from. It highlights who they are as a couple! It makes their wedding unlike any other! For Supriya and Jake, it was the Indian traditions and outfits! It was a perfect blend of both of their backgrounds!

Just wait until you see both of their looks for their vibrant Ellicott City Indian wedding.

So I think to end this post, I’m going to leave you with a question. What are you going to do on your wedding day that will make it unique or bring a special touch to resemble your relationship? I challenge you to do something because when you share the memories with your family and friends, it makes it extra special and a day to remember! Enjoy my favorites on how they made their day unique to them!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
