Today’s sweet couple share a beautiful story: as family friends, the pair have known each other their entire lives. So when it came to planning their wedding, they envisioned a celebration that would bring together their loved ones from around the world. Read on for more about their engagement session in Spain.

We’ll be sharing more from the couple’s mehndi and sangeet ceremonies today and destination wedding tomorrow!

More from the bride:
“Niraj and I have known each other our whole lives. Our families are deeply intertwined, but our relationship is a fresh twist in their decades long friendship. We wanted our wedding to reflect that same juxtaposition between history and modern innovation. Barcelona perfectly encapsulates this spirit, and is a picturesque midpoint between the States and India, where the majority of our friends and family live. To weave this narrative through our engagement shoot, we chose two historical locations in Barcelona as a canvas, which we contrasted with modern attire and accessories.

The shoot took place just an evening before our wedding events began. The intimate moments fueled an organic transition from the months of meticulous, grueling planning into the serenity of our wedding. Our anticipation for the upcoming week grew as we wandered knitted streets and paths searching for secluded spots to capture our interactions.

Our comfort with Erich McVey, our photographer, also grew as we chased the last bits of sunlight around the Gothic Quarter and Parc del Laberint together.  Having a natural relationship with Erich made documenting the intricacies of the rest of our wedding week seamless and joyful.”
