Indian- and Nigerian-American Wedding | The International Golf Club & Resort

Rashmi and Sam’s wedding was a confluence of cultures and rich traditions of celebration that drew on their American, Indian, and Nigerian heritage, with guests from around the world gathering to celebrate the union of two remarkable people. The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Being there to capture the many wonderful moments left me feeling incredibly uplifted. And what moments there were! The Baraat in a golf cart decked out with flowers, ceremony under generous oak trees, a quiet retreat together through rolling hills, toasts with riots of laughter, choreographed dances that Rashmi’s sisters put together with all of their friends, traditional oblation in honor of ancestors present in memory, dance party that was humming for hours—all of these, taken together, were like the blossoming of life itself. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.
