I have been to McNay art museum few times but I never thought its also a wedding venue until Kaitlin and Avinash inquired me for their Indian Fusion Wedding at this lovely venue. Kaitlin and Avinash lined up their events for 2days with Haldi & Sangeet on day 1 followed by Catholic ceremony and reception on day 2. The days were completely filled up events back to back but it was one of the most memorable wedding for me to cherish.
The connection between the couples and their wedding photographer is more important than the actual photography itself. When it comes to Kaitlin and Avinash, I felt the connection with them right when I met them for their engagement session in San Antonio botanical Garden.
Going back to day 1 of the couple’s Indian Fusion Wedding, Haldi day was so much with couples family coming in from different part of the country. Friends and family of Kaitlin who were attending the Indian Wedding Ceremony for the first time were curious about the event and Avinash’s volunteered to explain the ceremony process and its importance. I always say the more people for the ceremony the merrier and yes! It was so much to capture when people got crazy. Sangeet night was so intimate with very close family and friends in attendance.
We started off the day with Catholic Ceremony at the most popular Mission San José church. I have always loved architectural portraits and I was glad to shoot at this architectural wonder. Right after the ceremony we zoomed off to the McNay Art Museum ball room for cocktail hour & reception. In-between we even had our formal pictures once at the church and at the museum before starting off the cocktail hour. I clearly don’t have an idea how we did everything but as Kaitlin mentioned on my Google review of mine that I was all of the place, that’s 200% true. I was everywhere capturing family formals, bridal party, couple portraits, venue shots, cocktail hour, decor and ballroom setup shots, I did not miss out anything in the gallery.
Reception night was a blast. Right from the bridal party entrance to the dance floor, everything was eventful that day.
