Anuj and Ambika’s New Jersey Indian Wedding Photography
I had the lovely honor of photographing Anuj’s and Ambika’s Wedding which took place in New Jersey last month. The Ceremony and reception took place at a newer venue called The Marigold which is popular for Indian weddings. I photographed Anjuj’s Brothers Wedding in NJ 3 years ago (see here), and Anuj’s Brother’s, Wife’s brother’s wedding (See here) in Atlanta 2 years ago (I know, a bit confusing) so I’m always excited to be around people that now feel like family to me. Let’s just say I’ve been around a bit!
Benjamin came along for the ride as my second shooter and photography assistant. The ceremony was a traditional Vedic yagia (sacrificial fire) followed by a day time reception in a large hall on the property. Talk about a beautiful display of food and details. The color scheme was a multitude of colors which seamlessly and surprisingly blended so well together. And OMG, they had the most beautiful wedding cake that I have ever seen! They also had the Mayapuris and Gaura Vani there performing some beautiful Kirtan (sacred music) to help usher in the festivities and lots of dancing. We headed to Rutgers university to do their formal pictures just as the sun was setting.
Favorite moment: Taking beautiful pictures of the gorgeous Ambika. Another Great moment was seeing Gaura Gopal there, whom is a famous speaker known for his funny spiritual talks. I was a bit star struck! You can view him in action here.
Hope you enjoy their sneak peek!
