Romantic views of the lake and spectacular Texas sunsets are sure to impress your guests while you celebrate your most memorable day.
Planning an Indian wedding is in itself a huge task. Gowthami and Sai meticulously planned their lovely destination Indian wedding at Horseshoe Bay Resort. They not only had to take care of the wedding day itself, but also of flying in their loved ones from different parts of the world.
Cheryl from Glitzzy Events took on much of the workload: coordinating vendors over Zoom (which was necessary because of the pandemic) and ensuring the wedding day was as smooth and memorable as possible for the happy couple.
Gowthami and Sai’s wedding was a South Indian Telugu wedding, which is different from many of the Indian weddings I have photographed. There are many rituals and ceremonies I needed to be aware of in order to make sure I was in the right spot to get the perfect shot for the couple.
Fortunately, I have a great deal of experience in all types of Indian wedding photography, including Marathi wedding photography, Gujarati wedding photography, Punjabi/Sikh wedding photography, and South Indian wedding photography. The South Indian weddings I have photographed include Telugu weddings, traditional Tamil Iyer/Iyengar weddings, Kannada and Konkani weddings. This experience and expertise made it all the easier for me to seek out the right spot to get the perfect angle during important ceremonies.
We started off the day with the couple getting ready, plus formal portrait and family shots. Then the ceremony started at 8am. Yes – 8am! All South Indian wedding ceremonies start early – sometimes even before that :).
After the portrait session was the first look – a short couple’s portrait session. Then the couple zoomed off to their Indian wedding ceremonies – the groom for the Baraat and the bride to the Gauri Pooja.
The Baraat started at the Marina parking lot and continued all the way until the shoreline lawn mandap. DJ Tej and Dhol Sanket played their awesome music and got the crowd dancing to their beats. It was really beautiful to capture these moments of such a special Indian wedding, surrounded by tall palm trees. It felt like a Caribbean wedding venue in Texas.
The ceremonies went on until 2pm, and then I started the reception coverage at 4.30 pm.
We finished with a portrait session at the waterfall area at Horseshoe Bay Resort.
