Meghana and Shan
Meghana and Shan were married on June 24th, with a ceremony and reception at WoodsEdge Farm in Stockton, New Jersey.
The love these two shared was so impressive to us, especially when we heard their story. Meghana and Shan have made their relationship work long-distance. They overcame the struggles of separation and were so excited to come together as husband and wife for the rest of their lives. We were thrilled to be able to capture this huge moment for them.
We started out the day with some “getting ready” images, with one wedding photographer with Meghana, and a second shooter with Shan. From there, we set up a first look that ended up being one of the most memorable parts of the whole day. The bride is a huge Jurassic Park fan. In a nod to this favorite, she dressed up in a T-Rex outfit for the first look! Meghana somehow managed to keep her dress and hair looking stunning underneath it. We loved that surprise, because it was a unique and personal moment for them and definitely had everyone smiling—the perfect way to start a wedding day.
Before the ceremony itself, Meghana and Shan met with a small gathering of close family and friends so they could share their vows. We love to document quiet moments like this, when it is all about the connection between the bride and the groom and the support that they have all around them from those that are closest to them.
The wedding itself took place on a farm (which is rare for Indian weddings), and we absolutely enjoyed photographing the venue itself. The alpacas in particular were amazing! It’s not every day we get to document animals like this in traditional Indian wedding photography! This rustic, tranquil venue was a picturesque setting for a wedding.
Shan & Meghana, thank you so much for trusting us to capture this beautiful day for you. Congratulations to both of you!
