Sept 2011 – A couple of weeks ago, I had the great opportunity to experience the wonders of an Indian Wedding. I had the wonderful privilege to work along with Henry Chen and Brian Fletcher to document Anjali & Mohsin’s wedding ceremonies. For those that aren’t familiar with Indian Weddings, they are usually spread apart through multiple days, each day celebrating a traditional ceremony and capped with a grand reception.
The day I had covered was the 2nd of the 4 day celebration. On this day, Anjali was celebrating her Pithi tradition and later that day, we ended up at Soka University for the Mehndi ceremony. Both were a first for me but hopefully not the last. Both ceremonies were so rich in tradition and celebration, it was certainly an experience I will always remember. Everyone was so nice and comforting, I wouldn’t have mind photographing all day long. The day was full of celebration that included traditional Indian ceremonies, dance performances, great food and a lot of dancing.
