Weddings can be quite stressful events for the bride, groom, their respective families, and even friends sometimes. There’s always the concern about the weather, especially if there is an outdoors component. Will all the key people turn up on time? Will make up smear? Will the food be alright? Will people have a good time? Sometimes events like this can turn out quite disastrous but other times, the cosmos align and everything just seems to work out perfectly. Such was the case for the lovely wedding I attended with Adi on May 9th, 2009.
I had met Naasha a few times before this event and have always known her as an intelligent girl with great tenacity, especially with respect to her medical degree. And I always thought Naasha was beautiful, which is the way I feel about all the Talatis However, at this great event, I saw Naasha in a different light. She was truly a star – confident, beautiful, and very much in love with her leading man, Michael Sallas. There was no doubting that. It really took the celebration to a different level as that sort of happiness is infectious.
The setting, Callanwolde, an arts center and historic home in the Druid Hills area of Atlanta, was stunning and definitely helped create a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere for Naasha, Michael, and their families and friends. And the photographer (photojournalist) Drew did a great job of capturing the bride and groom at their best.
Of course, no weddings are complete without the amateur photojournalist (me) taking a shot at documenting events. So I hope you enjoy my slideshow’s of Naasha’s and Michael’s Rehearsal and Dinner and Naasha’s and Michael’s Wedding on flickr.
And finally, if you’d like to see the video I took of the ceremony (including Adi’s reading from the profit Zarathustra), you can watch it right here courtesy of Vimeo. Note that there is a 3 to 4 second lead ahead of the actual video starting.
