Bina and Andy’s wedding celebration at Shelburne Farms was the most grand, colorful, and unique Andy and I have ever had the honor to photograph. Bina and Andy along with their friends and family, the energy and the team of vendors were simply amazing and we felt so fortunate to be a part of their festivities!!
Their ceremony was so beautiful and and included some traditions we are familiar with, but also had elements we were unfamiliar with. Bina described it like this: “We designed our own ceremony, fusing traditions from the East and the West, and selected the poems and songs with our friends and families’ help. We wanted the personality, wisdom, humor, and honesty that a great friend could provide, and that’s why we chose Martha. We also wanted the parts of traditional weddings we most admire and that most represent our love to be part of the day!”
Bina has the most gorgeous eyes!
Bina holds hands with her Grandmother in a very touching moment.
We had time for some fun photos with Bina + Andy, their wedding party and their loved ones before the ceremony. It was important to them to attend most of their cocktail time, which many couples want these days.
Some beatiful details from the day…
Andy and his guys make their way down to the ceremony location by the lake.
Bina’s Father + Mother walk her down the aisle. You can see why Bina is so beautiful!!
A little guest watches from the aisle.
I loved this part in the ceremony when the guests were asked to hold hands.
The celebration begins!
Bina’s sister and the rest of the bridal party stole Andy’s shoes and wouldn’t return them until he performed a song for each shoe. It was hilarious!
I was obsessed with all of the beautiful henna hands!
More lovely details…
We took a few minutes before dinner for some relaxed portraits.
The clear tent was perfect as the beauty of the Coach Barn was still visible.
The toasts were full of emotion.
The guests were treated to a pretty sunset and sparklers by the lake.
A sparkly kiss.
A couple more quick photos at sunset.
Bina dances with her father.
There were some really fun props from the photobooth, so of course we had to snap some photos of the silliness happening as guests waited their turn.
The newyweds have some fun on the dance floor.
Up and away!
