What an incredible Kanika and Shaheen's wedding day was! Beginning with traditional Indian events and continuing with a modern American ceremony and celebration- the day was an event not soon to be forgotten!

Kasey of Bliss Events designed an incredible setting for the morning of traditional Sikh ceremonies. From the fabrics imported from India, traditional cuisine and music, to a room enveloped in dramatic lighting, the setting for Kanika and Shaheen and their guests was perfection. 

As always the Renaissance Columbus and surrounding downtown streets offered a modern setting that paired amazingly with the traditional Indian wardrobe for the mornings portraits. 

After the beautiful ceremonies and portraits, it was onto part two of the day- the American ceremony and celebration!

The paper-made bouquet was custom created for Kanika by Christina Norris to pair with her sleek, modern styling that included gold Jimmy Choos and silk ivory gown.

After preparations, we headed over to Cosi Columbus. As always, the first look became one of my favorite moments of my day by the moving reaction Shaheen had as his bride approached.

I love these images my second photographer, Brittany Bird, captured of the moments just before the ceremony on the terrace.

Once again, Kasey of Bliss Events created this incredible space that the couple had been envisioning- a space full of light, white and pale blues with incredible box lanterns above the dance floor. Adorning the tables were sweet centerpieces by Flowers on Orchard Lane and paper flower table place cards by Christina Norris.

Kanika and Shaheen entered into their reception with a roaring dance party that had nearly everyone on the dance floor- now that's the way to begin a party!
