this is it!  the last night of indian gorgeousness.   the evening was more like a western wedding reception, but not just any wedding reception!  there were ballet dancers, opera singers, and theatrical performers for entertainment.   it was a night of heart felt toasts and sentimental surprises.  the bride’s mother sang a song to her (there was not a dry eye there!).  it was a magical last night of celebration!

the hangover bazaar was held poolside at the gorgeous leela palace.  it was a relaxing morning for the guests to see local crafts and lounge by the refreshing waters!

the full moon fantasy sangeet was at the island palace of jag mandir.  bollywood entertainment, family and friend’s entertaining performances and a great dj made it a night to remember!

post 2 from one of the most amazing weddings ever!  the ceremony was at the gorgeous leela palace in udaipur.

here are a few shots of the bride getting ready from my fabulous second shooter, michele waite.

the baraat is always a fun part of an indian wedding.  the drums pounding and the dancing are so festive!  often the groom will ride to the ceremony on a horse or an elephant, but this groom opted for a bike. : )

post 1 from one of the most amazing weddings ever!  the first night of the wedding was magical.  whirling dervishes, a sufi rock band, delicious food, and gorgeous decor at an amazing location.  what else can a photographer ask for?  maybe a super nice and totally gorgeous bride and groom?  well, this couple is that too.  the ring ceremony was held at manek chow at the palace complex in udaipur, india. it was a great first night in udaipur.  : )

Highlands is a quaint little town tucked away in the mountains of NC.  It was the perfect setting for Marla and Butler’s elegant southern celebration.

The venue and good eats: the farm at the old edwards inn

The look:  oakleaf flowers

The party people:  the maxx (they were awesome!!)

Butler and Hudson.  They are both pretty handsome guys, don’t you think?

Miss Marla looking extremely glamorous!

marla and kenzie

The marshmallow exit!  i think people ate as many marshmallows as they threw.  ; )

thanks again to the amazing tania lezak for second shooting!

here are some gorgeous shots that she took during our trip.

and finally here are a few of my fun shots from glacier national park.

me and my sweet mommy!

tania and i jump for joy.

a funky fish-eye shot.

i was a little scared of bears in the park, but luckily bears can’t tell that a person on a horse is not just one giant animal, so they usually leave people on horseback alone.  we had a great time on our trail ride through the park, but unfortunately we were not allowed to bring our cameras.  : (
