A Unique Blend

So Paulo & I were once again getting ready to head off Maui to Kauai. We were both really excited because the wedding was going to be held at the beautiful Waimea Plantation Cottages. The grounds still resemble old Hawaii with cute little cottages tucked behind huge coconut palms. We knew that Biren & Jane were hanging out when we got there so we tracked them down to meet them & go over last minute details. Now Paulo & I have seen lots of different families come together but this was one to remember. You see Biren's family was traditional Hindu Indian and Jane's family is a tight Filipino bunch. There was a lot of beautiful people from both sides of their families & it was amazing to see them blend together so well. As one time I caught a glimpse of Biren's mother in her stunning sari & jeweled in bindhis, chatting with Jane's dad as he spoke with his thick Filipino accent. It was truly an amazing ceremony and the couple integrated traditions from both sides. The highlight was when Jane entered the reception in her handmade red sari decked out like a beautiful Indian woman. We had such a great time capturing the unique moments. This wedding will be remembered for a long time.

Here is a slideshow..

Congratulations on the most beautiful blend of families I've seen thus far....
