Veneet’s Sangeet

So before the weekend I posted a few pics from Monica’s Lady Sangeet to start the  showcase of their wedding events last month.  I really enjoyed capturing all of these events and one of the many positive aspects of doing this is that I got the opportunity to get to know Monica and Vaneet’s family and friends each time.

Veneet’s Sangeet was a fun night.. to add to this point, the next morning when I was to arrive to capture Veneet’s Mayyan, everyone ended up being late due to the great party from the night before.  The night was filled with singing and dancing, plus tons of positive energy.  I hate generalizations, but there is one thing I’ve noticed with every Indian event I’ve captured – everyone is on the dance floor.

Monica’s Lady Sangeet

I think I’m going through withdrawal from this couple since it felt like I had event coverage every day starting from mid August with this awesome couple.  So we’re excited to share a few pics from each event to tell their story.

I’m going to rewind back and start with one of their first wedding events, Monica’s Lady Sangeet.  I remember arriving to J&J Swagat (I always wondered.. if the owners named this place because J&J (Johnson & Johnson) is across the street from them.. anyways.. I digress) where the room was beautifully decorated quickly filled up with family and friends.   I personally love seeing all the bright colours of the outfits on the females.  The night was filled with many traditional aspects from singing, playing of the dholki and dancing.

To my friends, Monica and Veneet, here are some pics starting from your first event. Enjoy!

A summer outdoor bridal shower // Monica & Veneet

So this week is the home stretch for the marathon of wedding events for Monica and Veneet. I’m really looking forward to the next couple of days as it’s going to be such a fun experience that I’m grateful to be a part of.

I mentioned this before in the post where I captured the engagement party for Monica and Veneet, that this couple and their family done their best to include me in capturing all the events. This shoot was a gift from Monica sister, so before I get into this post, I just want to say thank you to Sonia and kudos for doing an amazing job setting up this bridal shower. On the day of this event, it was HOT–perfect weather for an outdoor party. The afternoon was filled with creative touches, from the décor, personalized games to the beautiful looking desserts with the cute lovebirds.

There is so much love for this couple and I can’t wait to document the parade of events starting tomorrow till Sunday.

Your Friend,

Leon

Congrats to the Bride to Be – Andrea’s bridal shower

There is a simple rule when it comes to certain things in life… so for example, if you need your hair done - go to a salon, if your car needs servicing – find a mechanic… not rocket science right?  Well, until spending the afternoon capturing Andrea’s shower did I realize the unobvious link… if you want to cater the perfect party… don’t call a caterer… hire architects =)   When I walked into the party, I was blown away (mind blasting… insert Russell peters voice) by the food and presentation and when I asked who was the caterer, a few scrambling friends of Andrea said us… and we’re not cooks, we’re architects.  Seriously impressive ladies!

Aside from the food, the thoughtful planning didn’t end there. Even with the games, they where all catered to Andrea. It’s not often you see a game like, replicate a building by using candy lego block contest (you know you’re an architect when…) and design the perfect shoes.  It was super sweet, even down to the surprise gift and cake that perfectly fit this jet setting couple.  A nice surprise that day was Desmond popping in quickly with flowers for Andrea… although I think he was there for the food too =)

It’s quite apparent that there is a lot of love from all of their friends and family for Andrea and Desmond’s upcoming big day. To my friends Andrea and Desmond, thanks so much for asking me to capture this chapter in your story. You guys seriously make an amazing couple together and I want wish you both nothing but the best going forward in life.  Here are just a few pics to visually story tell the event.  See you both on the field soon (me on the sideline of course =) )
