We first met Neelam years ago at a friend’s wedding, and we’re so happy she followed along with us and our work ever since! When it came time for her to tie the knot with Rajat (hey, that rhymes!) we are so happy she chose to work with us.
We had a full ceremony day with a traditional Sikh ceremony at Nanaksar Gurdwara in the morning, followed by an intimate backyard Hindu ceremony. There were plenty of tears from all sides both of joy and of realization. Weddings like this make Michael wonder how he is not going to cry for the entire day of our daughter Evelyn’s wedding (hopefully many years in the future).
Neelam exudes happiness. No matter what is going on around her, even rain on her reception day in Banff, she and Rajat were just so happy to be surrounded by friends and family celebrating with them on their wedding day.
Michael and our second shooter Bruce had an awesome time traveling between Edmonton and the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel for this fab wedding!
The Mirage Banguet Hall was a great setting for the chuda ceremony. It was beautifully decorated and there was lots of room for people to see what was going on.
Before the ceremony while everyone else was getting ready, Neelam and I went out to the forest behind her house for a quick impromptu portrait session. As a child she played in this clearing.
Breaking with tradition a little nit, Neelam just couldn’t wait to see Rajat and she had me coordinate a chance for Rajat to sneak out so that they could see each-other before the wedding ceremony.
