This is a big one visitors, so please give a little extra time for the photos to load, LOL! Since this was a giant 5 day celebration for Kiran & Sehaj, and we have so many photos to share… we will split this up into three posts.
A Trilogy of Wedding awesomeness if you will!
This post contains moments captured from the first three days of the five day wedding celebration. This is everything leading up to the wedding day. I’ll break down the main ritual points below.
Kiran & Sehaj, their family and all their friends are pure amazing! Before the celebration even began, we were invited in like family. We were accepted into this beautiful community of people and we never wanted it to end. Indian weddings are a joy to capture for me. I’m not saying they are better than all the other kinds of weddings… bunt kinda, LOL! I sure as hell wish I had a Barat at my wedding!! All weddings of all types are beautiful to me. The big difference I notice at Indian weddings, Sikh or Hindu, is that it really is a marriage of families. The bond of these two families being joined together by two people in love is so very strong and a pleasure to document. So let’s get on to the celebration…
The first three days are filled with traditions and rituals that usually translate into “let’s party”. Here’s a simple break down… The bride and her family does stuff, The groom and his family does stuff, and then they come together to do stuff. Then they are blessed, safe and ready to get married.
