Claire and Shikha | Piedmont Park Wedding in Atlanta

Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyes
I’ll unfold before you
Would have strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter
Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you

– Sara Bareilles

Today I want you to meet Claire and Shikha.  They were married in a beautiful sunset ceremony in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, with a reception afterward in the always elegant Magnolia Hall, with just a liiiittle bit of a Harry Potter theme.  Because everybody loves magic.  And there was definitely magic in the air that night.  From the heartfelt words spoken by everyone during their ceremony, to the enthusiastic Gangnam Style dancing at the reception, the whole evening was magical.  And through it all there was Claire’s contagious laughter reaching out to bring a smile to everyone’s face, and Shikha’s eyes sparkling with love and happiness.  There was mischief and a touch of debauchery.  But mostly, there was love.  Take a look and enjoy… And that, dear internet, is how two beautiful ladies have a wedding full of magic and laughter and joy.  With awesome dancing.  Did I mention that Shikha’s dad can really dance?  True story.  And I want to thank Claire and Shikha and your amazing family and friends for having me be a part of your magical day.  It was so wonderful to get to know you all and I’m grateful to you for all your graciousness and generosity.  You are all amazing.  Like sands through the hourglass…
