Wedding and Reception Details

This post from my sister’s wedding and reception is one of my favorites I have done since I started STYLE’N two years ago. When I started this blog my goal was to share my own personal style and all things associated with life and style and this wedding was full of life, style, fashion, and so much more!  The entire week with family and friends consisted of so much love, laughter, and fun. I hope you have enjoyed the past few wedding posts (here, here, and here) as much as I have enjoyed putting them together. 

You may want to grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable because there are more photos here than I usually post. I had a tough time narrowing down the photos but each photo is truly unique and helps tell the story of this beautiful day. And I know I speak for Rachna and Vik when I say a big thank you to Sarah and her team at Whitmeyer Photography for the amazing job they did with all the photography. Just the other day I was telling my husband I want to get married again just so I could have Sarah and her team take our photos.

Now THIS is a wedding! What beautiful photography! I particularly like the images of your mother: she's beaming with pride. It's great that the photographer was able to not only catch that but show it so clearly. I love seeing your traditional attire – so pretty! Congratulations to your sister and her husband!
