Sonia and Eric were such an awesome couple that we asked them to answer a few questions about their wedding so that we could share it!! Here is what they said!!
When was your Wedding?
What made you choose your wedding date?
We wanted to have a summer wedding that also coincided with a day of good luck on the Indian calendar.
What was the weather like, and was it what you hoped for? How did it impact your day?
It was a bright and beautiful sunny summer day with the expected August humidity.
Besides the “getting married” part, what was the most vivid memory of the wedding day? (for both of you)
Our first look and first dance together as a married couple.
What was the total guest count? Why did you pick the number of guests you did? Was it hard to get to that number?
We had about 400 guests. We both come from very big families and we wanted all of our loved ones to share our special day with us.
Where did you have your Ceremony?
What do you remember most about the Ceremony?
The beginning of the ceremony where we put flower garlands around each other symbolizing the start of the ceremony. Walking around the fire as part of a traditional Indian wedding ritual.
What was the most memorable part of your photography experience with Veils and Cufflinks? (From engagement all the way through)
Jerome getting Eric’s crying nephew to look into the camera and smile. We absolutely love those pictures of him. We had a blast taking pictures in City Hall with our wedding party and close family members.
