Rachna and Todd's wedding

Rachna and Todd's wedding
Benham's Grove was the site Rachna and Todd chose for their wedding ceremony. It was a beautiful fall day.
Here are a few from their day ...

Of course, the shoes! Aren't they fabulous?

Looking at the wedding gift from Rachna and Todd ...


This was my first time photographing at Benham's Grove. It is a beautiful setting ...

Todd's family getting ready ...

While I was inside with the ladies, Karen was with the guys. Here is Todd getting ready for the big event!

Todd's father was also his best man ... it just shows how close the family is. I love it!


back inside with the girls ...


I love the momentum in this photograph ...


Rachna and Todd exchange a journal on special events where each one writes a note to the other.

Rachna's sister helping her with her hair ...



a little prayer before going down the aisle ...

Todd and his mother coming into the ceremony ...

Rachna waving the marriage paper ...


apparently the formals after the ceremony weren't as exciting as I thought :)

Some of the maid-of-honor's details ...







I love this next series ...





Rachna and Todd are such a gorgeous couple ...

Rachna and Todd decided to have their first dance and their toasts done out in the gazebo. Here is the shot of them getting their toasting glasses as they walk down for their first dance ...


first dance as husband and wife ...

Since Todd's dad was the best man ... he had quite a few stories to choose from when it came his time for the toast! Todd looks like he may have picked a good one!

the maid-of-honor's speech ... made everyone smile ..

their fabulous cake!
I love this next shot of them cutting the cake. I like that the video camera is partially in the shot. It kind of has a 'behind the scenes' feel.



speaking of behind the scenes ... I do like these shots too ...
Rachna dances with her father ...
Todd dances with his mother ...


Rachna and Todd, CONGRATULATIONS on a beautiful marriage. I wish you both all of the best and a lifetime of happiness. I had such fun and have never felt more welcomed into a family than I did at your wedding. You two and both of your families have touched my heart.
A thank you goes out to Karen for being right there with me to help me out!
