Priyam and Pat are a smart and adorable Boston couple who were married in a vibrant and gorgeous 3 day celebration in Houston Texas, where Priyam's family lives. I photographed the weddings of two of their friends in Boston, and I'm so glad they asked me to shoot theirs. I love getting to know the whole gang and their families! Priyam and Pat are both the sweetest, funniest, most energetic beautiful and loving people! It's so much fun just watching them interact with each other. They will never have a dull moment in their marriage!
The first day was the Mehndi party where guests had henna designs put on their hands (me too!), while people danced, ate delicious food and spent quality time catching up!
Pat is searching for his initials in Priyam's Mehndi.
Day 2 was the Vidhi, which includes the Pithi, a special paste that is spread on the bride and groom which, among other things, softens the skin and makes it glow for their wedding.
Day 3 was the Wedding or Shaadi and Reception!
The Wedding begins with the Baraat, the groom's wedding procession. During the ceremony, the bridesmaids steal the grooms shoes, and he has to pay them to get his shoes back. What you see here is a lot of wheeling and dealing! After a break for lunch and a few hours rest, it was party time at the unparalleled Wyndham Houston West Energy Corridor!
