Where can I even start with these two? I’ve known Misato and Chris since 2012, when I photographed their handmade Virginia wedding and their engagement at the Hendry House! Misato is a talented freelance designer while Chris is a culinary chef at the Andaz Tokyo at Toronomon Hills. This March, Josh and I traveled to Japan and we had the pleasure of meeting up with them for some catching up over delicious meals and fun exploring around the city of Tokyo.

These photos of them were taken during an afternoon stroll through Ueno Park. While in Japan, we were lucky enough to witness the beginning of the beautiful spring cherry blossom season. We were fortunate to experience it all in the company of such sweet friends.

Sneh and Kedar’s Charlottesville Indian wedding celebration took place at the beautiful Keswick Hall in Virginia. Their families gathered together from near and far – some traveling all the way from India for the festivities! From the gorgeous florals by Southern Blooms to the live ceremony painter they had there to commemorate this special time in their lives, it was all such a beauty! They created an event that blended both their cultures and southern elegance.

One of our favorite details was their custom watercolored stationery by Yao Cheng Design. As Hindu wedding ceremonies tend to be over an hour in length and packed with traditions, Yao designed a beautiful program that explained every aspect and tradition with corresponding painted illustrations.

A very huge thank you goes to my talented friends Caleb Jenkins and Kurt Baier for assisting me on Sneh & Kedar’s beautiful wedding day event. You can view a glimpse from their Sangeet here and engagement session here.
