Do you ever see photos from a wedding, and just feel the energy, the love, the excitement radiating off of them? That is exactly the feeling I’m getting from this Naperville wedding from Melissa Hayes Photography. I always say Indian weddings have got to be amazing to be a part of, and the images you’re about to see have just proven that fact. The couple chose such brilliant, vibrant colors, therefore achieving such a fun and exciting ambience that flies right out of the computer screen. Don’t forget about the gallery for even more!
From Melissa Hayes Photography … The bride and groom, Nazihah and Saif, had their ceremony at a Mosque in Naperville. The Mehndi was held earlier in the week. Recalling their engagement session back in the winter and watching Nazihah transform into a goddess-like bride was amazing to witness. Their heartfelt ceremony was filled with words of wisdom and guidance to each of them on respect, love, and cherishing one another for every single moment.
A photo session with just family and bridal party immediately followed nearby. Families and friends made their way to the reception at Ashyana in Naperville later that evening. The guests felts as though they had transcended into a mid summer’s night dream with a light blue sky and nature accents of branches and an array of delicate blossoms. Karuti, the event coordinator for Ashyana did such fabulous work turning the bride’s vision into reality.
Nazihah and Saif looked as though they had stepped out of a fairytale and were absolutely breathtaking. The vivid colors and gorgeous patterns were a photographer’s wish come true. With both the families being long time friends, and Nazihah and Saif knowing each other since childhood, you could feel how emotional it was for everyone. As the bride and groom made their exit, everyone immediately followed to give them their final best wishes before their departure. Fireworks were ignited as they drove off in their car adorned with flowers. It truly was a dream for us to document their wedding and we wish them all the best!
