Love love love this fall engagement shoot from Symbol Photography at Roger Williams Park in Providence, RI. The wedding of Sayjal Patidar and Santosh Menon, featured in our 2014 issue of Southern New England Weddings, was equally stunning. A girl after our own heart, Sayjal planned the wedding herself – no small feat given that the affair spanned multiple days, two capital cities and a sizable guest list!
Sayjal, a self-professed wedding aficionado turned wedding professional, is the Boston-based wedding planner and blogger behind Shaadi Bazaar, New England’s first and only wedding resource dedicated to South Asian brides. She is also a regular guest blogger for us on the Southern New England Weddings blog.
Says Sayjal of planning this shoot,
“Santosh and I were hoping for a fall wedding, but since that was not going to happen, we decided to have a fall engagement shoot instead. Our shoot took place where Santosh proposed to me at Roger Williams Park in Rhode Island. There was a lot of planning involved with our engagement shoot. Brendan [of Symbol Photography] and I took a month to plan out the details, ideas, and locations and then after that it was trying to figure out what to wear. Your engagement shoot can be involved or simple, depending on what you want from it. Here are some ideas on locations for your engagement shoot and ideas on what to wear for your engagement session.”
Sigh. Makes us want to run away to a river bank, hop in a canoe in something fashionable and head off into the sunset with someone special!
