It was a lovely luminous day on Sunday, May 4, 2014 and Reshmi and Aleksander were just minutes away from making their lifetime covenant to each other. The ceremony would take place at St. Alphonsa Catholic Church in Loganville, GA with more than 200 guests in attendance! This Syro -Malabar Catholic Church was established in 2006 and Reshmi & Aleksander’s wedding would be the first ever held there!

To start the day off right, we had to capture the gorgeous sunlight with some photos by Heidi from “Our Labor of Love”. The bridesmaids with bouquets in hand arrived first in their short, midnight blue dresses. Reshmi arrived shortly thereafter looking stunning in her all white gown bejeweled with beautiful crystal embellishments, and a yellow sunflower bouquet that was to die for!

After photos, Reshmi was tucked away in a private location so Aleksander and his groomsmen could take their pictures and not run into each other. The guys were handsomely dressed in dark grey suits with yellow ties and groomed to perfection. Once their photos were complete they began seating guests for the ceremony.

The ceremony was charmingly decorated with yellow and white ribbons tied along each row of pews, and a trail of yellows roses up and down the aisle. Not to mention the wonderful religious statues throughout the church. This eccentric Indian-Catholic wedding was full of harmonious songs, elaborate traditions, and inspirational readings.  During the ceremony, Aleksander was careful as he tied the Thali around Reshmi’s neck and covered her with a breathtaking Sari adorned with intricate beading and threads. Reshmi and Aleksander also took communion with each other and lighted unity candles with their parents to solidify their bond. Love was clearly in the air and each guest was attentive as Father Matthew led the ceremony with grace from beginning to end.

Upon conclusion, the bride and groom took more photos and then boarded their black stretch limo for their reception at Little Gardens. Overall, everyone was overjoyed with the wedding celebration and was impressed with our assistance and professionalism. Another flawless execution for Janice Blackmon Events, and an unprecedented success for their church, literally!
