Florida Hindu Engagement Party | Kartik & Ruchi (Part 2)

Last month, I blogged Part 1 of Kartik & Ruchi's amazing two-day engagement celebration, and I figured IT'S ABOUT DANG TIME I show Part 2 to the world! 

There's not much I can add about my experience photographing this weekend, so I'll just say it again : The warmth, friendliness, love, (and food!) shown to me and my team that weekend in Sarasota I'll never forget. This family knows how to throw a party, and I'm so grateful they chose me to document it. 

Day two started with about an hour of family formals, (which for a traditional wedding day sounds like a nightmare!) but with views of downtown Sarasota as our backdrop and the colorful dresses, I kept telling my assistant, Danielle, that I could photograph group shots all night. We then had some time to photograph the bride and groom to be around the Westin Sarasota and then it was PARTY TIME. 

After some lovely performances from family and friends, and a few heartfelt (and hilarious!) toasts, Kartik and Ruchi cut their cake and shared a dance before the dance floor was opened. Literally the loudest, most colorful, funnest (totally a word. Fight me.) party I've ever photographed. 

Huge thanks again to my assistant Danielle and second photographer Brandi! You da bess.
