Mehtaab & Rick's wedding in the fall of 2014 was full of surprises, as was their journey to the day they said "I do." Rick put on a clinic for how to propose to your bride, as this video of the surprise proposal will show.

Clearly, Rick values Mehtaab so highly he didn't want to leave anything to chance, or miss the opportunity to show her how much he loves her.

The wedding itself was lavish and filled with love. Smiles everywhere. Dancing and singing breaking out all over the place. Family members getting a little TOO involved in Rick's maiyan ceremony. A dohl player that almost didn't show up leading Rick and his entourage to the milni. An epic shoe theft after the ceremony and then a stunning photo shoot with Pardeep Singh, complete with "props" and sand drawings supplied by Rick and Mehtaab.

Yes, this wedding had it all. My own personal favourite moment was the moment Mehtaab's mother first saw her, on the morning of the wedding.


Rhoda and Chris shared their amazing story with me when we first met. It was truly cosmic how they came together, and Coastal Church played a big part in that. Naturally, they wanted to hold their wedding there as well. It’s a unique space with a lot of angles you don’t normally find in a church.

I love details, annd I tend to overuse close-ups, and sometimes wish I captured more wide shots. On this occasion, I saved the big wide for their kiss, the only shot that shows the impressive view from the back of the church.

The family traditions on display in the morning were a joy to capture. Rhoda was happy to let her mom be in charge of each step of the process, and I think enjoyed being able to be a part of it as I did.

The day ended back at the Four Seasons, with an amazing choreographed dance that I scampered around to properly capture. Chris is a pretty calm and quiet presence, and I didn’t see those moves coming!
