Desmond Tutu once quipped “You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you…” And if this is true and we should consider our family “gifts”, then for Julia and Suresh, their wedding day was like Christmas, Easter and Valentine’s Day all rolled into one. And then given steroids!
Julia and Suresh’s family and friends descended upon North Carolina from all corners of the world. To witness a beautiful Duke Gardens wedding and the joining of two hearts. To observe the traditions of two different cultures. And to fill their day with all the things that truly matter in life. Laughter. Tears. Hugs. Love. Friends that feel like family. And family that you’re lucky enough to call friends.
Julie and Suresh….thank you for making family one of the most important aspects of your special day. And for making me feel like part of the family! I am humbled beyond words to have been able to capture the memories of your wedding but, more importantly, to document the start of your new life…your new family. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness and a many more joyous family celebrations! I <3 you! OXOX ~R
