International Wedding Photographers: South Asian Wedding Reception |Sara and Saad – Part III|

She had perfected the art making him laugh. He had perfected the art of surprising her. When we met them and heard their love story, we were excited to find out more about how such a beautiful couple had fallen for each other when they lived miles apart. Everyone who met them could see just how crazy they were about each other. As we got to know them, we started to see how their personalities fit together like pieces of a puzzle, how their eyes met in the in-between moments when they stole a smile from across a room. Her eyes still glimmer in his direction when she tells the story of how he invited her for a stroll in the heart of downtown Austin, dropped to his knee, and asked her to be his forever… She, of course, said yes!

Meet Sara and Saad.
You might have been following along with us through their wedding journey from their oh-so-romantic Castle Photo Shoot (Part 1) to their Vibrant Haldi (Part 2). If you missed these, check them out and then jump back here for the gorgeous finale!
For the big wedding reception day, Sara and Saad contrasted the bold colors of the Haldi with a soft and luxurious palette of pastels, pinks, rose and gold tones. The stunningly royal look was pulled off with accents, wardrobe, and accessories sourced from across the globe, from the US to Bangladesh. The bride flew all the way to India to find the perfect gown – a breathtaking gold Sabyasachi design.

We love it when we can sneak away with our couples for some sunset images just before the sun goes down. The weather wasn’t too comfortable outside, so we made it work with a private indoor spot and gorgeous window light…and these are some of our favorites from the day!
