Kohl Mansion, Burlingame, California

Every once in a while we meet a couple who already have so much history together, so many experiences and years of learning one another inside and out, that when they look at each other you can just see the meaning behind their eyes. It is a level of understanding and synchronicity that can take years to achieve.
Alka and Shane had already been together 14 years when they got married. Watching them look into each other’s eyes while going through the rituals of their Hindu wedding ceremony, and seeing the looks on their faces when they were finally pronounced husband and wife, was powerful.
Their reception didn’t disappoint either. When Alka and Shane first met with us they expressed concern that their reception wouldn’t be as wild as the kinds of receptions we usually photograph. Even though we never worry about that, when we saw a group of screaming women yanking Shane’s jacket off on the dance floor just a few songs in, we knew we had a good party on our hands.
Alka and Shane, thank you for trusting us to show you how perfect your day was. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.
