Adam & Suniah celebrated the beginning of their marriage at the stunning Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna this past Sunday and it was such an honor to capture their day!! I met with these two almost a whole year ago at Cafein in Chantilly over coffee! I had lucked out since they were in town from Florida and Suniah’s sister Rimsha had mentioned that I photograph weddings. We sat down for coffee and got talking about their story and I knew as I was sitting there listening to them both talk about how Adam had proposed to Suniah, that these two were incredibly sweet people, they were my KIND of people (I mean Suniah’s a HOO so how could they not be?!) and that their wedding was going to be such a beautiful day! And such a beautiful day it was!
On their wedding day Suniah spiraled up to the top of the hill to the gazebo with her mom on one side and her sister on the other, it was starting to drizzle ever so slightly but nothing could bring down that huge smile on her face. She looked up and among all the people huddled around the gazebo. All her family and friends in one place on the top of the hill overlooking the beautiful Meadowlark Gardens. And there was one person on the top of the hill that had an equally large smile on his face as he watched his bride walk towards him. Adam and Suniah had one of the most heartfelt and inspiring ceremonies I’ve had the honor of capturing. They were asked to look around at the biggest supporters of their marriage (huge huge smiles broke out on both their faces, you’ll see it below!!), imagine not just time together now but what it would look like to grow old with each other and were told to always remember how they felt in this moment.
Both Adam and Suniah had asked the officiant to especially thank their parents which had been such an integral part of shaping both of them as individuals before they came together. As the ceremony went on it started raining a little at first and then a lot as they exchanged the rings and were officially married!! It was perfect timing and of course, good luck!! What stood out the most to me was watching these two signing their marriage licenses, it had sunk in that they were OFFICIALLY married!! These might be some of my favorite pictures from their entire day!
Suniah and Adam, I hope your wedding day was everything you had imagined and more. I know from watching you greet each others’ families throughout the day and how you welcomed each person at your reception and took the time to really talk with them, skipping out on your own wedding lunch and cake, that you really deeply care for everyone around you. You’re both incredibly smart and caring doctors and it shows even in how you treat people outside of the hospital. I wish you guys the very best on this new adventure and I hope Asheville is a wonderful start to it!! Thank you for letting me capture your day!
