The Hotel and Airline Industries Love Us

Meena + Ryan

Meena and Ryan's story as a couple began a decade ago. They both decided to put their careers first which meant lots of travel to see each other and maintain a long distance relationship at times. Through it all they supported each other despite how unique their situation was. However, Ryan and Meena after all, are all about doing things differently. I asked Meena, "Why are you getting married on a Thursday? Is the date special?" She told me mostly everyone that was coming to the wedding, was from somewhere else so this way they can make a week out of it and spend some real time with everyone. They wanted more than anything to create an awesome two day experience for their guests and they succeeded. Oh, and the bride wore gold...because why not? One of the most stunning dresses I have ever seen! Jessica from So Eventful handed me the copper plate that was used to print their invitations and said, "You have to do something cool with this!" So we created a ring shot around this plate. My favorite part was getting to know Meena and Ryan through their sweet parents. I interviewed them the morning of the welcome party and weaved their interviews with pictures and music and showed it the same night to all the guests. Meet Meena + Ryan!
