hindu temple and grand hyatt wedding: yolanda + div

They shared two first looks that day. Each time he laid eyes on her like it was the very first time, and both times she wore a smile so genuine you felt it’s warmth. The second time they saw each other feeling every bit as exciting as the first.

And watching them together, you knew that none of this was happening just because it was their wedding day or because they were in fancy clothes. It’s simply how they are together. Simply a part of their love. And whether in sweatpants or a sari, a t-shirt or a tux, you know he’d still look at her just as sweetly, and she’d still smile just as wide. Because that’s what happens when you’re lucky enough to love your best friend . . . .

Yolanda and Div are married! (Or should we say DOUBLE married, because instead of one amazing ceremony they had TWO!) The day started with a Hindu ceremony, and we couldn’t have loved it any more. The traditional attire both of them sported was incredibly detailed, and Yolanda wore the most stunning array of jewelry and flowers in her hair. It was no wonder that Div had such an amazing reaction when he saw her for the first time that day! After the ceremony, which was full of so many awesome rituals we had never seen, the two of them enjoyed a lunch with all of their family before heading to the hotel to get ready for the second ceremony of the day.

Yolanda changed into a gorgeously modern asymmetrical dress before sharing another first look with Div, who this time looked every bit as good as James Bond in a fitted suit, and then the two of them explored the property of the Hyatt before a waterside ceremony underneath the chuppah. The reception was decked out in florals and included a performance from sitar and tabla players that added such a fun feel to the party, and after some sweet speeches everyone was ready to mingle on the dance floor and kick the party off!

Yolanda and Div, it was so wonderful to finally meet you both and we had such an amazing day with you guys! Hope part III of the wedding celebration is every bit as fun (and full of laughter) as this day!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
