Update: We are very excited to share that Samir & Sheetal's wedding at Hilton Pearl River was featured on Maharani Weddings. You can find the feature here.

Warm and welcoming families and a lot of emotions was the highlight of this wedding day. The weather was slightly on the hotter side but that did not deter our couple and the wedding guests from having fun. We are pleased to present Samir & Sheetal's beautiful South Asian wedding at the Hilton located in Pearl River, NY. 

We started our day with our bride's elegant engagement ring resting over her wedding band. We placed it over bride's golden Kate Spade peep toes. The bridal suite had big windows which allowed the soft morning sunlight to pour in.

Taking advantage of that gorgeous natural light pouring in. Their timeline was not hectic and this allowed us to document everything. The bride was relaxed and did not rush while getting ready. Needless to say we took full advantage to create some stunning photographs of our bride.

We headed out for the first look after our groom got ready which was followed by some portraits. The weather was on the warmer side but our bride and groom were real troopers. We situated them in front of fountain located at the front entrance of the Hilton hotel and let the moments unfold.

We headed straight to baraat after we finished photographing our bride and groom. A lot of dancing and music! This was followed be a traditional Gujarati wedding ceremony. 

The wedding ceremony was followed by vidaai. It was one of the most emotional parts of the wedding; tears and heavy emotions surrounded us. We are always sensitive about photographing such moments; documenting them as they unfold naturally.

For most South Asian weddings; the bride and groom tend to change attires for the evening wedding reception. Our bride wore an elegant Indo western gown. The weather was not pleasant; it was humid and muggy but our bride and groom kept an upbeat attitude during the entire session. 

Before we headed for their portraits we caught this beautiful moment between the bride and her daughter.

The wedding toasts were emotional and heart felt; a lot of teary eyes around us. It was hard for us to hold back ours. Photographing weddings have given us such a tremendous opportunity to meet and know so many people; a front row seat to experience all these emotions and an honor to document it all for the families to cherish for a lifetime. 

After all the formalities were taken care; it was time for all the guests to hit the dance floor! Epic and fun loving crowd surrounded our bride and groom! 

Samir & Sheetal - Thank you for sharing your wedding festivities with us. It was such an honor photographing all of you!
