Taqueesa & Adrian’s Wedding | Word of Faith Cathedral | Atlanta Austell Wedding Photographer

Wedding

Big churches are either an Atlanta thing, or a Southern thing, I don’t remember seeing many in Florida… Word of Faith Cathedral built by the Bronner Brothers over in Austell next to Six Flags probably qualifies as a “big church,” with it’s 4,000 seat main cathedral! We were not in the main cathedral for the wedding, but I almost got lost in the parking lot getting to the smaller chapel! This Saturday was a lovely day for a wedding as we celebrated with Taqueesa, Adrian, their family and friends. The day started off with the bride and groom getting ready at the Bronner International Chapel. Thanks in advance to the always amazing Sonya Yim for second shooting (and first shooting at times while I shot video), all photos in this post by me, Zac, of course; but you can head over to Sonya’s site to see her angles. Let’s get started with this wedding!

Prior to the ceremony we snuck Taqueesa out to the parking lot for some portraits. Parking lot? Yes, parking lot =) We had to be subtle to make sure the groom and the guests didn’t see her!

Ok and I still took some indoors in the bridal suite too!

The reception got off to a sweet start as Adrian serenaded his bride with his saxophone.

Trash the Saree | Suhana & Rajib Waterfall Photo Session | Atlanta Indian Pre Wedding Photography
After a rather exhausting Labor Day weekend schedule of two weddings - Shireen & Imran's amazing four day Ismaili wedding at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead and Koel & Sanjeev's Hindu wedding at Lake Lanier, I was trying to find a shoot to post that wouldn't be 100+ photos long like some of these epic weddings have been lately. Then I realized, hey I actually never posted the full set of these photos from Suhana and Rajib's "Trash the Saree" waterfall photo session! Not an Indian wedding bridal session since they're already married (and we even shot an anniversary session about a year ago here), but just a fun thing to do =). And ok, it w ...

All good things must come to an end eventually, right? Well, at least this is only a preview post from Sani & Javed's Indian wedding, so there ARE more photos coming in the full wedding day blog post =). The Valima took place at Bethak Banquet Hall and was a bit of a smaller gathering compared to the large wedding days at the Jaffari Center. That doesn't mean it wasn't full of amazing and heartfelt moments though, here is just a preview... More photos to come in the full blog post!

Saaraa & Naim’s Pithi | Occasions Event Hall | Atlanta Ismaili Indian Wedding Photography
Day 2 of Saaraa & Naim's Ismaili wedding celebration was the pithi ceremony which took place at Occasions Event Hall. Pithi night is definitely one of my favorite parts of the wedding with lots of dancing, events, and of course the egg ceremony =). With so much action going on during just the second day of this Ismaili wedding, of course I had to post a ton of the photos here to the blog. From the bride's pithi ceremony, to the groom's egg ceremony, and then the evening reception which included several performances and skits about how the lovely couple met, this was a night to remember. Check out just a few of these fun photos from anothe ...
