I cry at weddings. Love is an amazing thing and it still finds ways to sweep me off my feet even after years and years of wedding photography. It still gets me. Yesterday I found myself getting teary eyed more than once.

First it was the story of how Aaron texted Esha a picture of their beautiful forest ceremony site, with lyrics to the song “I will wait” by Mumford and Sons. Then it was Esha’s note and gift to Aaron – a dried rose, the first rose he ever gave her, along with a letter listing all of the wonderful things he’s done for her to make her happy since they met. Then, Esha’s parents, one by one, crying as they saw their daughter as a bride for the first time.

The breathtaking ceremony, with touching personal vows and beautiful Indian traditions that included lighting of 7 candles and making 7 vows, with the bride and groom’s moms lighting the last candle along with them. There was also a special tradition called the “tying of the mangalsutra” – a sacred necklace which symbolizes the inseparable bond between a husband and a wife. During this part, Aaron’s mother carried the necklace on a tray and passed it in front of six women in their family to bless it, before Aaron put it on Esha’s neck.

Esha’s dad got emotional when he and her mom walked her down the aisle. During his toast later on, he said how in that moment he remembered having to learn how to let her go when he was teaching her how to ride her bike as a little girl. I lost it. When Aaron’s son, Brando, gave his speech and said this was his favorite day ever and he was so happy that Esha was his stepmom, there was not a dry eye in the house!

Oh, did I mention that all of this took place in an enchanted forest?

I love this wedding, I love this couple and their families, it was such an honor and an absolute dream to be able to capture this amazing day. Congratulations Esha and Aaron!
