Some weddings are just so wonderful, they deserve multiple celebrations. That's the case with this gorgeous day! Jennifer and Nithin have family all over the world, and they started off their marriage with ceremonies in India and on the East coast. Then, this summer they wrapped up their wedding festivities with a renewal of their vows and a beautiful and fun party at one of my favorite venues: the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art! I always enjoy revisiting the spot where hubby & I started our own happily-ever-after, and Jennifer & Nithin's wedding was no exception. Throw in a few India-inspired details and I was in love. 🙂
I started the day with Jennifer while she got dressed at her childhood home.
Everyone knows I adore Kate Spade, right? Right.
Jennifer & Nithin indulged me in something I've wanted to do for a while: a first look at the end of State Street, with a view of the Capitol at the end. 🙂 It's not the most *intimate* spot to see one another, but it was fun!
Bonus points if you can find the juggler we had to plead with to clear one of my favorite Library Mall spots:
I ADORE the Memorial Union, but I can't wait until the construction is completed over the winter. Despite the very limited access, though, we found a few spots to commemorate one of the couple's favorite places to hang out. One of mine, too! The Union is so Madison...
Jennifer, you looked stunning... But I think the kids at the wedding gave you a run for your money on "cutest" of the day! Nithin's nieces were so adorable!
Gigi's Cupcakes! Delicious! I had the chocolate peanut butter. So yum.
The casual ceremony was perfect. Really sweet, a little quirky, and given by a dear friend of the bride and groom!
Plus, we *just* made the cut before they took the old Orpheum sign. Kind of crazy that this is my last wedding photo with that sign in it!
Big benefit of a first look: you get to ENJOY your cocktail hour.
The beauty of wedding photos on State Street.
Thank you, guys, for trusting me to capture this lovely day! I had a blast!!
