Rupa & Emre
Rupa and Emre appeared on this blog once before, when I photographed their engagement pictures in New York over the summer. The big day finally arrived a few weeks ago, and what a big day it was! These two probably thought through more of the wedding day details than any couple I've worked with before, and managed to put their own personal touch on almost every single aspect of the day. It was an Indian wedding, which comes with a number of religious and cultural traditions by which they were able to abide, but with a modern twist, ensuring they and their guests had fun above all else. It's a testament to their organizational skill (and that of Ani, their day-of coordinator) that dinner was served at precisely 7pm, following the schedule to the minute but not in a forced way, a solid five hours after festivities had begun. Kudos go out as well to DJ Lucky for keeping the dance floor absolutely packed the entire night. Oh, and did I mention that Rupa and Emre managed to surprise their guests (and even their families) by having the incomparable Ballou High School Marching Band bust in and play at the reception? Or the photo booth complete with ridiculous props? (This is now an add-on option to all my packages.) Nicely done guys! What a blast.
