South Asian Wedding Photographer: Wedding at Union Station | Sima + Rishi – Part II|

This post is Part II of II. Click here to start at Part I to see the Sangeet at the Hall on Dragon.

They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. The depths of love, the high hopes of future dreams, and the sensation of life’s most cherished moments. There could be no better description of the journey you will take with our beautiful couple, Sima and Rishi. In their eyes you could see love they share, and in the eyes of everyone around them you could see how loved they are by their family and friends. Everyone adores Sima and Rishi!

From the energy and excitement of the groom’s horse-mounted baraat through the streets of Dallas, to the captivating rooftop portraits with the bride overlooking downtown, to the playful stolen glances between the bride and groom during moments of their ceremony, it was magical.

Join us for Sima and Rishi’s big wedding day.

After a beautiful first dance, the groom took a moment to speak to his bride. The emotion and love in the room was so clear that everyone could see it. Rishi asked the guests to join them in honoring Sima’s father and his memory. The ballroom went dark, and guests held out their phones to create a sea of lights in the dark, while everyone watched a beautiful tribute to the bride’s father play on the screen, while many cried and told us how greatly he was missed.   Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -126 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -127

When we document weddings, we have so many favorite moments, but this next image will always be so deep and beautiful. Sima’s father’s tribute is reflected in the background, over his family, and her brother is supporting and holding the hands of the women in the family, while Rishi holds Sima. The legacy her father left is so clear, and the love his family has for him is captured in this image. We can’t put into words how special this tearful moment was…but the words of Sima’s brother when he toasted and explained that his sister was their father’s joy, may be the best explanation of all.    Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -128 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -129 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -130 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -131

The toasts were heartfelt, and the evening was enjoyed by all!  Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -132 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -133 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -134 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -135 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -136 Rishi and Sima by Ivy Weddings 0930 Rishi and Sima by Ivy Weddings 0933 Rishi and Sima by Ivy Weddings 0969 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -137 Indian Wedding Photographer - Ivy Weddings at Union Station -138
