Angela & Devang

Devang and Angela (aka. Devangela) were married in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Richmond.  Flowers are used to signify beauty and joy.  Rice and other grains used in the ceremony signify food necessary to sustain human life and the couple exchanges garlands to signify their mutual acceptance of their lifelong commitment to one another.  The decor by Le Reve Creations was gorgeous and really set the mood for the day.

Yuehli & Matt

Yuehli and Matt were married in Hawaii in early May and returned to Atlanta a few days later for a reception with family and friends.  They are hilarious together and really fun to work with despite the fact that Matt hates taking pictures :) .  Yuehli decided to wear a white wedding dress for the ceremony and a traditional Chinese wedding dress for the reception.  The details of her dress were gorgeous and the color made for vibrant photos on the Emory University Campus.

Brooke & James

James and Brooke got married on April 5th at the Naval Academy Chapel in Annapolis, MD.  Such a gorgeous couple!

Dana, the maid of honor and the bride’s sister, looks on as her little sis gets ready for her big day.

It is a Navy tradition that after the ceremony, the couple has to kiss to get by the crossed swords.

It is also a tradition for the last swordsman to (gently) swat the bride on the bottom with his sword and say “Welcome to the Navy!”
