I first met Nilesh & Shalom in Napa Valley, California for their engagement session. They had flown from their home in Georgia to wine country, so we arranged to meet at Silverado Resort & Spa, which is also a golf course, and were able to capture incredible images of the very much in love couple, which you can find here:
Following the engagement photos, we discussed all the details for their upcoming destination wedding. Approaching the wedding day, Shalom shared more about them and their lives together. They first met through a kickball league back east, which also just so happened to be Shalom's birthday. She didn't remember him much that day, but apparently he fell in love at first sight. He didn't ask her out right away, it took a few months, and his friends actually let Shalom in on the his intentions to ask her on a date. Thankfully she did say yes, and and they've been together ever since. Shalom said yes again, when in proposed in December of 2015. Their families were elated, despite their cultural difference. Nilesh is Indian and Shalom is Puerto Rican, yet they share the same values and family is very important to them. They're both hardcore college football fans, and if you look closely you will see Nilesh sporting his alma mater. However you won't have to look to close to see the love in their eyes, adoration for each other in every moment, and all the friends and family who came to support them on such a glorious day in Tampa, Florida. The ceremony & reception was held at The Palmetto Club, and planned by the talented ladies at Ladydnk Events based out of Georgia.
Also, a special thanks to Lisha (Shalom's best friend) who referred me and created the opportunity for me to be apart of this beautiful celebration of two becoming one.
