Weddings

Ajin + Alexander Indian Wedding | Grand River Center, Dubuque IA | Iowa Wedding Photographer

Oh I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it was to bear witness to Ajin and Alexanders beautiful wedding day! From the beautiful details on Ajin’s wedding dress, her ladies stunning sari’s , the God centered wedding ceremony and high energy dance circle at the reception!  This Indian wedding was filled with beautiful traditions, and guests from all over the world! Both Ajin and Alexander lives have taken them across the globe, studying other cultures and experiences. They both are the nicest people you could ever meet, any of their friends and family would agree. 

I was so excited that the little patch of trees where we took engagement photos had some leaves budding on them! Iowa winter decided to last extra long this year, but we got our little spring patch to make it look like it was actually April!!! 😀  As an Iowa wedding photographer, you can never tell, or count on the weather haha! 

One thing that my second shooter and I were really excited about, was the Reception Dances! It was an amazing mix of upbeat American dance songs, and really cool Indian songs! This was the first Indian wedding, or any wedding with a different culture other than American and I absolutely loved it! Everyone was dancing! It felt like a scene from a movie as the song, Mundian To Bach Ke by Panjabi MC played a dance circle formed and people would jump in the middle to show off their awesome dance moves! 

They finished the night with a sparkler exit! It was so fun, who doesn’t love sparklers!?! 

Congratulations Ajin and Alexander! It was a privilege to have photographed your amazing wedding day! I wish you both many years of happiness!
