Brittany & Vivek's Wedding Part II | Calistoga Wedding Photography | Calistoga Wedding Photographer
What a wonderful way to start the week, with the next set of teasers from Brittany and Vivek's sumptuous wedding! I can't resist starting with one more lovely portrait..
Love! This was taken after the day had already begun, with a Catholic ceremony at the St. Helena Church. Here are a few glimpses of Brittany and Vivek's 'first marriage':
Next, while the bride and groom were still in their American wedding clothes, we shot some portraits around Calistoga Ranch, including these:
We took a short break in the middle of the day. Then, the Hindu festivities began. There were so many magical, colorful moments during this part of the day that it's hard to pick only a few teasers. Here are some favorites.

As part of tradition, Brittany's mother appies a red paste called kumkum to Vivek's forehead.

Photographing this day was such a pleasure and an honor. Stay tuned, still more photos to come.
