Galveston Island Indian and Norwegian Wedding - Endless Exposures Photography  - smitten-mag.com_0637

You can’t get much more original a combination than the cultural blend of this Norwegian and Indian wedding.  Set in the coastal town of Galveston, Texas, photographer, Endless Exposures gives us the inside perspective…

When I first heard from my bride Nadia and asked about her love story, she said “I’m a Texan, he’s Norwegian,..and we met and now live in NYC together!” Nadia’s Hotel Galvez had beautiful colors: pinks, golds, oranges, and greenery throughout her reception.. with Indian, Texas, and Norwegian traditions incorporated throughout the day. We absolutely adored her boho-chic lace dress from BHLDN that she paired with a baby’s breath floral crown by Island Flowers. You know it’s going to be a fantastic wedding when there’s not just one, but two wedding dresses. Nadia later changed into her Indian wedding attire to dance the night away with her groom on the colorfully lit up dance floor inside the Galvez’s Terrace Ballroom. The couple loved that the hotel had so much historical and romantic charm.  Guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the beautiful Terrace Ballroom while the couple and family took their formal portraits. When the couple was introduced to the reception they were greeted with their closest family and friends to watch them stride into their first dance. They had a Polaroid guest book table setup that entertained guests the entire evening, along with an Anniversary box for everyone to write a note of well wishes, sealed tight until their first anniversary.  We made sure and snapped a Polaroid of the couple at the end of the night so they could join in on the festivities!  I remember talking to Nadia in the hotel room while she was getting ready, and she had told me she wanted a beautiful, organic, and colorful wedding. Nadia got just that with the simplicity and airiness of everything from her beautiful gown, decorations, seagulls in the sky, air in the palm trees, and the sunset as they walked down the aisle.

Tropical Destination Wedding on St. John Caribbean - Lindsay Vann Photography - smitten-mag.com_0110

What a dream to get married in a tropical paradise, then really do it in a destination wedding with all your friends and family.  We love the bride’s beachy and effortless lacy dress.  The bright, tropical flowers pop against the pale blush of the bridesmaids dresses.  By getting married on this scenic overlook instead of at water level, the couple and their guests didn’t have to bother with sinking in the sand or try saying their vows over the crashing surf.  Just a little something to consider if you are planning your own oceanside nuptials.  Keep the guys breezy and casual in khakis and a white button down with rolled-up sleeves.  After the wedding, the newlyweds took advantage of the gorgeous scenery with a variety of locations for their portraits.
