Paul can be a thinker, and because he’s a thinker he comes off as pretty quiet. Not shy or closed off or cold – just quiet and observant. He’s a warm, joking guy once you strike up a conversation, but only if that conversation is off to side and not in front of people. So you can imagine how nervous he was to stand in front of everybody at the ceremony – to show his inward emotions outwardly – but that was the only thing he was nervous about. It wasn’t the marrying part. It wasn’t the friends and family mingling around part. It was just the standing in front of people part. And he rocked it. His vows were some of the most honest, true, sincere, and downright loving words I’ve ever heard a groom speak.
But that’s the thing about Paul. He’s just a crazy sincere guy. Whatever he feels or believes, he feels or believes with total conviction. Or maybe that’s the thing about Siri. I think her dainty laugh and bright eyes have just captured his heart so fully and completely that he believes in her – in their love together – with total conviction. So much so, that this quiet guy would stand in front of the world if it meant that he would get to spend his life with her.
This wedding was so absolutely amazing for Jeff and me. Not only are Paul and Siri the kind of couple that captures our imaginations, but their wedding beautifully combined the sacred Hindu traditions of Siri’s family and the American traditions of Paul’s family, so it was chock full of inspiration for us. I mean seriously – everywhere we turned their was gorgeous colors, intimate moments, and stunning scenery. Get your ‘Love This’ fingers ready folks, cuz this wedding was pretty stinkin’ EPIC.
First, let’s begin with Siri’s rockin’ jewelry. It was so exciting to be able to photograph such COLOR. Love, love, love!
Wow – what an incredible experience! And we have so much more to share… I’m so excited for Part Two tomorrow with Paul and Siri’s portraits, an outfit change, all of the swoon-worthy details, and an off-the-hook dance party! See you then!
