It’s been a while since we’ve done a two-part wedding journal post for you, but boy do we have a phenomenal, three-day wedding to share with you today! This Friday’s going to kick off a long series of simply fantastic celebrations we’ve been able to witness and document this late Summer and Fall on behalf of, well, we don’t want to boast, but seriously some of the most wonderful, caring, and lovely people around. We’ve been so lucky to share in their love and document this new adventure of theirs. Enjoy the very first part of Shraddha & Samir’s Indian wedding, covering the first two days. This afternoon we’ll be posting images from their third day’s wedding ceremony as well as a link to view their complete wedding.
Bill’s faves of Anne’s:
There was some serious talent present during the mendhi, with just the merest beginnings of an ornate design shown above. Below are some images from the pithi at Shraddha’s house (Samir’s was being held concurrently in Philadelphia, so sadly we couldn’t be there, as well.)
Here Shraddha’s mom tries over and over to “feed” Samir, while he did his best to playfully decline. He eventually relented, but not without a good fight. 🙂
Anne’s faves of Bill’s:
The garba shown above was an amazingly energetic (and as you can see, colorful) component of their wedding. What a great way to end the night!
Again, be sure to return this afternoon to see Saturday’s fantastically colorful and emotional wedding!
