Brittany & Vivek's Wedding Part I | Calistoga Wedding Photography | Calistoga Wedding Photographer

On Saturday I had the honor of photographing Brittany and Vivek getting married - not only once, but twice. In the morning, they tied the knot at the St. Helena Catholic Church. In the evening they wed again in a traditional Hindu ceremony at Calistoga Ranch. Vivek noted at the reception that he felt remarkably good being on his second marriage. From a photographic perspective, it meant double the color, the beauty, the moments. And, given what an amazing couple Brittany and Vivek are, that meant a whole lot of amazingness. Here, a peek at one extraordinary day.

Their hands, decorated with henna. If you look very closely, you can see where Vivek's initials are woven into the design on Brittany's hands.

One quick kiss inside

One sweet kiss outside

Yet another wedding where narrowing down teasers is painful, if not impossible! Many, many more beauties to come. For now, big congrats to Brittany and Vivek. Hope you two are enjoying a spectacular honeymoon.
