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.
Sima’s henna design was so elegant!
Shoes + bangles = all the sparkles!
Yes, the engagement ring was quite a stunner, too!
Our beautiful, happy bride glows!! A big thank you to Elan Makeup & Anita for the gorgeous hair and makeup!
We love a happy groom, and these shots by Matt are some of my favorites!
Rishi looking sharp!
How stunning is Sima?!?! She’s gorgeous, and her finished look is regal.
How elegant is Sima’s tikka with the large-cut gems?
The bride with her squad, ready to take over Dallas!
First look #goals! We adore this happy gasp from the groom when he saw his bride!
A high five and this cuteness…
How adorable is this!?!
An amazing Baraat for Rishi!
Beautiful ceremony decor by Prashe…love the dreamy color palette!
The bride was escorted in by her brothers, and the groom couldn’t take his eyes off her…
After the ceremony, we got to escape with these two for some photos of them in their reception attire, and we love everything about this! Their blue outfits, the quiet moments, and our lovely couple…isn’t this stunning?!
A shout out to our groom, Rishi, for being involved, talking with us, and helping Sima pull off a dream wedding in every way! A big thank you to Jignasa, and the KI team for their wonderful work to make this weekend a success – everyone loved the special touches!
So good to see familiar faces, friends, and families of past brides, at weddings!
Love this epic entrance!
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.
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.
The toasts were heartfelt, and the evening was enjoyed by all!
Rishi and Sima,
Thank you for allowing us to document such a magical weekend in your lives! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness as you start this journey of marriage. May every day, and every year, be happier than the last! Stay in touch, and we hope to see you around!
Matt & Ivy
