Indian Style Wedding Hosted at Trolley Square in SLC

by dav.d

Typically an Indian wedding will go several days and is truly unique. That doesn’t mean you can’t fake it and have an Indian STYLE wedding. The folks at Le Croissant Catering designed and catered this wedding hosted at Trolley Square in Salt Lake City and I was there to photograph!

This wedding was for Bethany and Steve. It had been a dream of Bethany’s to have an Indian wedding. There were food, henna tattoos, decorations, dancing, belly dancers, lighting, and more to have to make the evening memorable.

Typically malls are reluctant to have a photographer and a photo shoot going on their premises. Well, when that is the location of the wedding you almost have free reign of the place. Bethany had talked to Weller Books a few days before to see if we could photograph in their store and they said yes! Thank you, Weller Books!

I've never photographed in a bookstore before

I had the couple pretend to be reading the books and then act as if they just met at the bookstore. Cheesy, I know, but I like it.

We also talked to Cabin Fever if we could use their store for a few minutes as well. They are a novelty and gift store and they said yes. I tried to get some unique angles to photograph the wedding couple. It is pretty easy when you have toy robots in the store, lol.

We captured all the formal wedding portraits of the couple before guests arrived for the ceremony and the sit down dinner. This takes a lot of stress off of the couple and they can just enjoy themselves once the ceremony starts.

We braved the cold to go outside and get a few photographs. It is amazing what you can do when you have an hour with a wedding couple. I could spend hours photographing…

Who knows if I’ll ever have the chance to photograph in the mall again. Mall security seems to shut down anyone quickly. But we had free reign in Trolley Square to get creative and it wasn’t too busy. Next time I should hire an assistant to carry my light stand.
