Wedding Series – #KandSKnotItUp Ceremony

Photographick Studios | www.photographick.com | 571-449-7468

Every bride has vision for their wedding day and I knew I wanted mine to be elegant, traditional, and fun! When picturing my wedding, I always knew I wanted an outdoor ceremony. We selected the Westfields Marriott for its beautiful terrace and colonial look and feel. While we knew there could be a chance of rain, we decided to hope for the best. In wedding planning and in life, I’ve learned that not everything happens exactly how you wish. You have to trust that whatever happens – happens for the best. Including rain on the morning of our wedding. Thankfully our friends and family were amazing and still danced in our Baraat (a groom’s outdoor wedding procession)! Our wedding planner Sagina saved the day by making sure our wedding ceremony was still as beautiful as we envisioned. Here a few of our favorite highlights!

#Wedding Series – KandSKnotItUp Sangeet

Photographick Studios | www.photographick.com | 571-449-7468

Of all our wedding events, our Sangeet (a big party thrown the night before the wedding) was our favorite. From the start, we set the tone that our wedding should be fun, memorable, and a reflection of us as a couple. Most important, we wanted our guests to feel taken care of. Our Sangeet catering, décor, and set up was all done by Silk Restaurant & Banquet Services. Sanjeev, the owner of Silk, and his team worked tirelessly with us to understand our vision and create a one-of-a-kind experience. From spending hours going through my Pinterest boards to coming up with his own ideas, Sanjeev and I worked together to design the stage, color schemes, and décor, along with the menu (which our guests still rave about!). Here are a few of the highlights from our Sangeet!

#WeddingSeries – A Bridal Brunch with Tea India

Social and Style Tea India 20

Over the weekend, I held an intimate Bridal Brunch for my family. I wanted to thank them for all that they have been doing to make our big day so special. With the wedding less than a month away, everyone has been pitching in and spending countless hours helping us plan. It’s easy to get caught up with our to-do lists and timelines, that sometimes I forget to say thank you. Not that anyone expects it, but it’s important for me to take time and appreciate what everyone has been doing for us. With the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom, we all enjoyed a beautiful scenic afternoon on the patio. We talked about the details of the wedding, the preparations that remain, and more importantly what everyone is wearing! It was so nice to get everyone together and relax before all the festivities start! For our family, relaxation is a cup of chai over laughter-filled conversations. Of course I picked Tea India to serve during our brunch. The masala chai is a family favorite and reminds us how our Nani makes chai back home in Punjab. As a token of love,  I gave everyone chai thermal mugs and Tea India’s Chai Moments to keep everyone relaxed during the wedding while everyone is on the go!

// Locations: Supreme Court, Library of Congress//

When it came time to plan our engagement photos –  my Fiancé and I knew we wanted to include the city closest to my heart. Born and raised in the D.C. area, I have always felt like D.C. was home. Since I will be moving to Sonoma County after our wedding, having our engagement photos in D.C. made the day even more memorable. Walking past the Supreme Court and Library of Congress – I was always amazed by the history and beauty of the locations. We knew they would be the perfect spots for our shoot!
