Mary + Kalyan wedding {by liz}

This is a fun and happy way to wrap up the week! Mary and Kalyan literally light up around each other. When you see Kalyan you will just want to hug him. Meredith was helping me choose blog photos and actually said “This may be your happiest groom ever!” Totally spot on Mer! And Mary is just the sweetest thing and comes from such a fun loving family. These two together…sigh. I’m actually sitting here with a smile on my face thinking about their wedding day. It was a busy one and we fit plenty of stuff into a short period of time, but it was all worth it. Special thanks to my good friend and amazing planner Simcha from Simcha’s Events for keeping us on schedule and giving me such amazing things and people to photograph. But let’s let the photos speak for themselves!

First stop, M Haley Design on these letter pressed and gold foiled beauties.

Even though they were having a Catholic ceremony early in the day, Mary and Kalyan still wanted a special first look moment.

This was a must stop for these two. Apparently they always make out in the elevator of their apartment building in the CWE. I think that is a pretty good tradition and decent marriage advice actually. :)

I really feel like I might go back and count the smiles in this blog post. If you’re not smiling by now you might be an alien. Or a robot.
