Shiva-Vishnu Temple Livermore Hindu Ceremony – Castlewood Country Club Reception Pleasanton – Newark/Fremont Hilton Wedding & Reception – Kristin & Ramesh

The weather that had included more rain than usual was no where to be found on this wonderful sunny spring Saturday that Kristin and Ramesh chose to celebrate their love with a day long celebration that included two wedding ceremonies and two receptions. Their day began with a 7:30 am South Indian Hindu wedding ceremony at the Shiva-Vishnu Temple in Livermore. After all the color and tradition of the ceremony is was time for family and guests to enjoy a luncheon reception at the Castlewood Country Club located in the foothills of Pleasanton. The days celebration concluded with another wedding ceremony and reception with dinner and dancing at the Fremont/Newark Hilton Hotel. Helping me to capture all the joy and festivities of the day was Berkeley Wedding Photographer Stephen Hew.
