Shristi { Bridal }

 Yes, Shristi’s Lehenga Choli is THAT gorgeous!

Meticulously hand embroidered and beaded velvet and paired with a sheer beaded dupatta (shawl), sourced all the way from Kathmandu, Nepal.

More is more. Shristi look was not complete without the gold jewelry and colorful accessories: tikka, bangles, rings, necklaces, earrings, and delicate anklets. Her Badgley Mischka gold pumps were perfect for the overall ensemble. Simply divine I must say : )

Shristi second Lehenga Choli is more colorful and perfect for dancing the night away. The fabric is soft, light and flowy.

Lehenga Choli: Kaavya Boutique

Hair: Michelle Watts (Prive Salon, Lexington, Ky)

Makeup: Patrishe Stewart, ULTA, Lexington, Ky

Please check back soon for PART 2 (FILM images) of Shristi’s Bridal session.

Shristi’s Mehendi Night

I had the pleasure of attending a traditional Mehendi Night with my Nepali bride, Shristi last week. It was so much fun watching and learning the process and not to mention being in great company with Shristi’s closest and best family and friends. All girls of course. Shristi’s hands and feet designs took several hours of meticulous drawing by the talented Kimberly Brumsfield. I loved the whole getting together process with traditional music, dancing, chatter, laughter AND sharing of Nepali food! That is another post! I was an active ‘looker’ that night and will definitely participate next time they have another Mehendi party : )

 Special thanks to Shristi and her family and friends for the welcoming invite and making me feel so at ‘home’.

Emily & Cory

“Settle down with me”.

After many years of courtship, of and on and different schools, they will. In June. Emily and Cory dated in High School but it took them being miles apart to discover their love for each other. Deeper love. Settle down with me, kinda love. In Boston, they share their lives amongst books, exams, papers, and daily hassles. They found this love~ away from home : )

Our special date ended up in Washington DC. Emily reserved her date about a year ago and because of school and work, spring was to be the perfect time to document their love. Cherry blossoms and beautiful sunny weather, we prayed and hoped. But, the elements had different plans. It was bitterly cold in the morning but clear. I take ‘clear’ any day! The blossoms were no where to be found. At least the kind I dreamed about. They are there in spirit. I smile looking back.

This first shot has an ethereal feel. No idea how it came about but I love it so.

Within Jefferson Memorial…

One of a kind. Connection.

: ) Blush

The impressive Library of Congress. Wow is an understatement.

Emily and Cory.. you know you are gorgeous together. Don’t stop.

Smile. I did and will again at their summer wedding in Richmond, Kentucky. Can you wait?
