Double the ceremonies, double the fun!

Okay, maybe it wasn't TWICE as fun to have TWO wedding ceremonies, but I did have a blast photographing Rita and Tyler's wedding(s) at Monona Terrace in the Grand Terrace room. First we started with a Hindu Lite ceremony -- two and a half hours rather than three days (although it would have been cool if we could have had Tyler arrive on elephant, but I digress). Rita was stunning in a red sari. Tyler was rakish in his tux with red tie. Then after an accelerated Hindu ceremony that seemed to confuse everyone including our officiant, there was a quick change and we rolled into the Christian ceremony. I didn't clock it but I think it came in around 10 minutes. :) The bridemaids switched from yellow saris to yellow bridesmaids dresses, and the guys, um, didn't change anything that I could tell, but I was afraid to ask. Rita was again stunning in a beautiful red wedding dress. How cool! After some rooftop families pics we boarded the party bus and rocked/hip hopped our way to the Capitol for some fun wedding party pics. After pulling Rita and Tyler away for some "urban chic" photos, we boarded the bus and invaded Brothers. After several beverages and some dancing on the bar, we made our way back to Monona Terrace for the reception. Now I have 2500+ pics to edit and process....Zowie! But well worth the effort!
