Ceremony and Reception:  The Fairmont Hotel, Downtown Dallas, Texas

After celebrating for two days (Day One, Day Two), Ruchi and Ankit finally tied the knot!!!  (literally!)  If you have read the previous two blog posts, you’ll know that Ruchi and Ankit loves to laugh and have a great time – particularly on the dance floor as demonstrated in the Sangeet party on Day 2.  I knew after the second night, that the wedding day will indeed be something really special.

A little bit about how Ruchi and Ankit met, from her own words:

Ankit and I met in Boston while we were both in graduate school. We started out being pals, and while I thought he was hilarious and super smart, dating never crossed my mind. At some point during my second  year, I started thinking differently. His wit, kindness, and intellect were things that I really liked about him. We went on a date and have been laughing ever since!

The day began in the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas.  After getting dressed and doing a first meet of the day, Ankit will proceed to do a Barat, which is basically tradition where the groom arrives in a carriage/horse/etc, surrounded by his family members.  They’ll then meet the brides’ family, and enter the Mandap (the wedding stage) for the traditional Indian and Hindu wedding ceremony.

I was assisted by the fabulous Ashley Langford who was my second photographer for the day and he did a great job!  Some of these images in this blog are taken by Ashley.

Here are a few images from their day:

I have to admit, this is the best dancing groom, Ankit, that I have seen in a long time.

I’m still trying to figure out how Ankit and the groomsmen got into this position…..

This is my favorite picture – at the end of the night in the last song, Ankit kneels down to Ruchi, then Ruchi kneels down to Ankit in return.

Congratulations Ruchi and Ankit!!   Keep on laughing, you guys!
