Salamander Resort Indian Wedding in Middleburg, VA | Northern VA Wedding Photographer

The weather was perfect, the decorations were beautiful and the bride was stunning. It was the day that Ashika and Frank would say “I do. ” At the Salamander Resort in Middleburg, surrounded by their closest family and friends, Ashika and Frank tied the knot in a gorgeous Indian outdoor ceremony. I have been looking forward to this wedding for months and it truly was one of the most beautiful events I have ever captured.

There were so many moments I loved about this wedding… from the first look with not only just the groom but her parents as well, to the ceremony and beyond.  It was such an honor to be a part of this special day and I wish them all the happiness for years to come!

How the day went…..The wedding started off down at the barn where Frank got on the horse to ride up to the ceremony. Both of their families and the band gathered around him and celebrated all the way up the hill. It was awesome!! Once at the top, he was greeted by Ashika’s parents and then they walked up to the stage to proceed with the ceremony. I have to say, this ceremony was my favorite out of all. I loved all the different parts of it and how it includes her parents. The priest was hilarious and was cracking jokes here and there making us all laugh! They also had someone explain the whole process to us since it wasn’t in English and for those who have never been to an Indian wedding before. After about 45 minutes, it was time for Ashika to come to the stage and they finished the ceremony together uniting them as one. So so beautiful. The afternoon/evening went on with speeches, eating, drinking and dancing. The band she hired was awesome called Red Baraat! They were an Indian New Orleans infused jazz band and the energy they had made everyone have a blast! The night went on and on and the fun never stopped!

Congratulations Ashika and Frank!

The henna artwork on Ashika’s hands are so beautiful!! I had my belly done the year before right before I gave birth to my daughter. It was such a blessing! img_7170 img_7184 img_7233

So heartwarming that although Ashika and Frank’s mothers weren’t there in person to see their marriage, they still had a place for them as if they were. img_7383 img_7562 img_7696 img_7713
