This was a wedding I couldn't wait to photograph and had been looking forward too. Reema and Jonathan's wedding was intimate, beautiful, and organic from the style to the emotions felt that day. This Indian-fusion wedding brought together Jonathan's German heritage with Reema's Indian culture. They chose The Acre in Orlando for their destination wedding, coming down from their home in Washington D.C. for the festivities!
The day started off with morning cupcakes, Super Smash Brothers and Kanye coloring books. If you couldn't tell from the headline, Reema is a huge Kardashian/Kanye fan. In her "details" she even wanted us to photograph her KKW Contour Kit that was a gift from her friends! And of course, we had to finish off the night with iconic Kimye wedding jackets - hand-painted by Reema. You'll notice Reema is the 'Kanye' of the shot - and that's not by accident!
Reema had a gorgeous sari for her wedding ceremony and then an adorable 1920's inspired white cocktail dress for her reception. With her hands covered in henna and excitement for the day to start, Reema was radiant and beaming with joy. Jonathan also had traditional Indian wear for the ceremony and changed to classic slacks and white button down to enjoy cocktails hour and dancing. With wedding vows that had everyone in tears (including myself) and amazing friends and family that traveled far and near to celebrate their dear friends.
We got hit with a bit of a Florida rain shower, but thankfully it cleared up enough for us to enjoy some post-ceremony photos and amazing Indian cuisine for dinner! The night ended with a celebratory dance party and toasts under the stars.
To say that we were obsessed with this couple and their wedding would be a complete understatement. Letting us have creative and artistic direction in their day made for a fantastic final gallery that we can't wait to show off! So here are about 90+ of our favorite images! Thank you so much to Reema and Jonathan for having us and we can't wait to send out your final images!
