There are so many words that come to mind when describing Trina and Quinton’s 4-day wedding in New Orleans… beautiful, wild, opulent, classy, crazy, delicious, energetic, and of course, Bollywood! It is fair to say that not a single detail was overlooked as Trina, her family, Christine Paul Events, and David Beahm planned the whole affair.
It was also a very full schedule that kept Adam, Sarah, and I very busy (we had just welcomed our little Max at home, and Davina couldn’t make the trip). There was a gathering at Trina’s family home, followed by an evening celebration where 500 guests filled up the Civic Theatre in downtown New Orleans to watch friends, family, and professional dancers put on an incredible show full of colour, energy, and laughter. Under a colourful wash of light, everyone filled the dance floor… and set the bar high for the next day. Not surprisingly, the wedding day itself was chock-full of surprises, complete with flower-clad Ferraris, a festive Second Line, and a private concert by British Indian sensation RDB.
Truth be told, heard about Trina even before she even inquired with us, as she had communicated with many of our photographer friends in the industry (something we can now tease her about!). So it was no secret that photography was one of the most important elements for Trina and Quinton. While that meant that the pressure was definitely on for the three of us, we were also incredibly humbled by their choice to have us be the ones to document their wedding weekend. A huge thank-you to Trina, Quinton and their families for choosing us and welcoming us so warmly.
