Tanya & Tushar | Riverside on the Potomac Indian wedding | Leesburg, VA

Tanya and Tushar got all kinds of married out at Riverside on the Potomac. One ceremony couldn’t contain their massive amount of awesome, so they had two. This thing was boisterous, joyous and mad, mad fun. In addition, we had all the weathers and a crazy beautiful country setting with actual barn for partying. In short, it was really great. Tanya and Tushar:

(Preface: I am posting way, way, way too many photos. But there was so much going on! And everything was so colorful and pretty! And these two and their friends and families had so much fun! Forgive me. There was a lot to photograph.)

They started long before me, but I joined the fun the night before for their amazing Sangeet. So many of their friends and family participated in an outpouring of talent and love. They filled the Dulles Airport Marriott with purple and laughter.

Amber & Chris | Alexandria backyard wedding | Virginia

Amber and Chris were married in a very intimate ceremony in a family back yard in Alexandria. No muss, no fuss, just a whole lot of good times. And one very excited dog. Furthermore, we all survived the potential time-space collapse of having two Ambers at one small wedding.

The canine friend was a little too excitable to take part in the ceremony, but he did fine for portraits.

Rocking the suburbs, as it were.

Congratulations, you guys!

Mengci & Fan | Fairfax Courthouse wedding | Virginia

Mengci and Fan took me to a new courthouse : Fairfax. They’re very serious about the no-camera policy (except the ones on our phones – those are cool) but they more than make up for it with their choice of outdoor location – you can get married right in their beautiful, flower-filled courtyard! So that’s what Mengci and Fan did, obviously, spurning the ever-ready conference-room action. An enormous troupe of friends joined them for their nuptials, in-between classes.

Right next door to the modern thing is the historic courthouse with all manner of lovely arches to play with.

And we hopped over to a lovely little park nearby for some woodsy action. Out there in the boonies, you can do that – the woods are literally all around.

I got like 10 mosquito bites in the course of six minutes.
