There are more resources for brides to use when planning their wedding than ever before. Magazines, online blogs, and Pinterest boards all feature photographs of the real weddings of couples whose big day was flawless (we’ll make sure your pictures are flawless, too!). But with such an abundance of theme ideas, DIY projects, and charming minute details at your finger tips, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the endless possibilities. In order to avoid hours of deliberation and (sometimes tense) conversations with your mother or finacé, it’s import to discuss which elements of your celebration are most important to you. Are you a romantic who has dreamed about the moment she walks down the aisle in a stunning church? Or are you a food-lover who drools over tasty bite size hors d’oeuvres? By creating a list of two or three aspects of your wedding that are most important to you and your finance, you can put a lot of time and energy into making sure each of these elements is perfect, unique, and up to Pinterest standards. Of course we aren’t expecting you to let all the other decisions fall to the wayside (place settings, invitations, flowers, etc.), but choosing simple aesthetics for these features will balance out the intricacies and details you have chosen to focus on.
For Esha and Kevin, who were married at the Deerfield Country Club in Newark, DE, it was important that we capture the stunning details of their Hindu and civic ceremonies and the reception that followed. Below are a few of our favorite detail shots where you can truly appreciate the rich colors and the myriad textures of the celebration. Together the pictures share just a glimpse of their story, but if you are dying to see more you can view the rest of the images here. Lighting, angle, and composition each play a key role in composing a successful detail shot and we hope you enjoy these details as much as we have! Thank you again for letting us share in your celebration, Esha and Kevin, we loved it!
