Akanksha + Andrew: A Multicultural Madison Winter Wedding

 

It was a bright, unseasonably warm day at the madison museum of contemporary art...

The second I met Akanksha + Andrew, I knew I was going to like them! They both seemed so genuine and down to earth, and really excited about their intimate, multicultural wedding, happening in February of 2017, and so happy that their families would get to meet for the first time. 

Just like the first day I met them, their wedding day in February was also unseasonably warm, which worked out well, with Akanksha's family traveling here from India, where the mid-60's is about the lowest the temperature ever gets. It was so awesome to see both sets of families so supportive and excited for the newlyweds, and the joy was palpable! While it was a smaller, more intimate wedding, there were quite a number of coworkers there to celebrate with Akanksha + Andrew, given that work is where they met and ultimately what led them down the aisle. The 50 or so guests who had arrived for the ceremony got settled in by the iconic staircase on the 1st floor of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA). The ceremony, short, sweet, and touching, was over in about 15 minutes, and from there, guests headed upstairs to Fresco, on the upper floor of MMoCA, where they were greeted by the couple, as well as Dublin O'Shea, a live band that includes one of Andrew's brothers. As the sun set (and my goodness was it a gorgeous sunset), the lights in Fresco created the perfect ambiance for a great dinner, and a fantastic evening for the couple, their families, and all of the guests! It couldn't have been a more beautiful day! Enjoy the photos!
