Fernanda and Shuan’s Two Day Festive Mexican Hindu Multicultural Wedding – Grand Hyatt and Hotel 999
The first time I met Fernanda was November 2009 when the PR firm she was working for commissioned me to photograph an event for a well-known watch company in Times Square. Ever since then, we always see each other at these bi-annual events they host. I specifically remember one event, where we bonded as I was in need of someone to model a watch for me. The only person available at the time was Fernanda so I asked her if she would like to model for me. She happily obliged. The image I took became one of my all-time favorites. I believe it became one of her favorites as well since she used it for quite awhile as her Facebook profile pic.
We now fast forward 3 and a half years later and many events since then. Fernanda called me to see if I was available to shoot her wedding celebration with Shaun. I wasn’t available, but I knew that she really wanted me to capture her special day. So it took a little massaging of my schedule, but I made it work. When the wedding day came along, both Shaun and Fernanda were all smiles. Their friends and family were amazing and such fun to be around. The first day of festivities took place at Hotel 999 and was essentially a huge Menhdi party complete with a Mariachi Band. The second day started with everyone getting ready at the Grand Hyatt in New Jersey. Their wedding incorporated the traditional hindu ceremony. After the ceremony, Fernanda and Shaun treated everyone with a spectacular concert by the amazing Carte Blanche which performed 20’s and 30’s classic jazz.
