Andrea and Alex: Two Cultures. Two Weddings. One Day.

Andrea and Alex had the most unique wedding day I've ever seen. They didn't just have one wedding; they had two! To celebrate their different heritages, they had two weddings: one Catholic and one hindu. Andrea and her girls got ready at Post Card Inn on St. Pete Beach. Because the Catholic wedding was first, Andrea put on her white dress, and all the girls got henna tattoos on their hands and feet, knowing that the hindu ceremony was coming later.

Because Alex grew up Catholic, their first wedding of the day was at the beautiful St. John Vianney Catholic Church on St. Pete Beach, Florida.

Their second wedding of the day was the hindu wedding to celebrate Andrea's heritage at Tampa Bay Watch in Tierra Verde, Florida. I had never shot a hindu wedding before, and I have to say the colors were dazzling. I loved the vibrancy of everything, especially considering what a contrast it was to the Catholic wedding they had just had. Andrea's ensemble was absolutely amazing in its intricacy and detail, but Alex also had a very cool outfit. I especially loved his shoes with the pointy toes!
