Jody & Bib had the luxury of having two weddings! Their first was surrounded by family in friends in a beautiful orchard in Kelowna. The second was a big fun Indian party here in Edmonton, and I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding week here.
The week of festivities got started with a mehndi/dance party.
The Puja and Vatna ceremonies were photographed by Stephanie of Scade Photography – she captured some fantastic images! Thank you so much Stephanie!
Sylist Shana Chowdhury did Jody’s mehndi, hair, and makeup for the wedding. Talk about multi-talented!
This is not Bib’s wallet. But…a little game involving pinching his nose, and him grabbing a sari resulted in him getting a wallet! Happy wedding day!
More games: whoever grabs the wedding ring and/or dollar coin wears the pants. I’m not really sure who won at the end of the day – there were several rounds. (Thanks for this one Christy).
Bib and his guys have spent a lot of time hanging out at the Elephant and Castle and it was important for him to have some photos there. It was pretty awesome just chilling out with them then. (Special thanks to all the guys for scaring the crap out of me during the ceremony – you know what I’m talking about…and to ‘Rob’ in particular for being lots of fun).
Jody & Bib got ready for their reception at the gorgeous and modern Matrix Hotel.
You’re about to see a glimpse of what I can do in 7 minutes. We were running a bit late for the reception, and didn’t have much time for photos. With my second shooter Christy’s help we were a whirlwind of activity and the Matrix hotel was such a lovely location to work in. It wasn’t until I got home that night and curiously looked at the time stamps of the photos that I realized how long the shoot was.
Christy had a different angle:
Jody’s mom did some of the decor and all the florals at the reception. It was amazing watching her work – she wanted everything for her daughter’s wedding to be perfect.
After taking bollywood dance classes, Jody & Bib WOWED everyone with a spirited performance.
And the rest is history! The guests danced the night away. Jody & Bib – your wedding (part 2) was so much fun, congratulations!
