Katie & Kanav: One Couple, Two Weddings! Evansville Indiana Wedding Photographer

Are you ready for TWO wedding ceremonies? Are you ready to see tons of bright colors? True love? Amazing details? Well feast your eyes on Katie & Kanav’s incredible wedding day. Katie is a friend of mine and when she told me she HAD to have me as her photographer, I was beyond honored. With a Hindu ceremony in the morning, a decidedly American ceremony in the evening and an intimate but lively wedding reception, this day had it all! The first part of the day was full of many of the wonderful traditions of an Indian wedding, the most important of which is the Saat Phere, or seven rounds around the fire, which signifies God. The couple is tied together and circles the fire seven times. During this rite, they recite the Seven Promises to each other as husband and wife. To say that it was a moving experience to watch, is an understatement.  Afterwards, I took a few portraits of Katie & Kanav in their Indian wedding finery.

But wait! There’s more! Later, in the early evening, the Kashyaps were married again in an American civil ceremony by Katie’s cousin Dave. With a ceremony peppered with in-jokes and humorous references, most of the images are of everyone exploding with laughter. After, everyone headed to Rolling Hills Country Club for an elegant evening reception, with hors d’oeurves and dancing. I was able to sneak Katie & Kanav out onto the grounds of Rolling Hills for some romantic portraits–with a friend or two popping in for a fun cameo. It was truly an amazing day and I had so much fun, it didn’t even feel like work at all!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Kashyap!
