Kelsey & Anish's Wedding | The Estate at Florentine Gardens

Bride and groom fence with swords, she's winning - - Estate at Florentine Gardens wedding - Hudson Valley Wedding - Kelsey & Anish’s wedding - Amy Sims Photography

Kelsey & Anish met in fencing club in college. So when they asked me if we could take a few portraits of them sword fighting, I was not surprised, I was super excited! And when they told me their first dance would be choreographed to "Your Song" from their favorite movie, Moulin Rouge, I thought the 3 of us might actually be soulmates. Their joy & love for one another was truly an honor to capture. The wedding was such a fantastic melding of cultures - I particularly enjoyed the Indian music breaks, with guests teaching each other dance moves. It was awesome! Please enjoy!
