Arti & Gautam - Mendhi & Sangeet (November 20,2008)

Ok I have no excuse for taking so long to blog about these images. I admit it, I have been a slacker! I am proud to say though that I got Arti & Gautam's edited disc of images in the mail on Monday. That is some seriously quick turn around time for me... less than a month from the wedding. Yes, I am THAT good! :)

Anyhow... this isn't about me. It is about an amazing party celebrating Arti & Gautam. It was a night of song and dance with friends and family and I couldn't have had more fun.

I am going to start you out with some detail shots that Susan (my amazing second shooting for this event) and I got.

A few portraits before Gautam and his family arrived:

Arrival of Gautam and his family:

I love how happy and beautiful Arti looks in these next 3 images. She is just radiating!

To kick off the party, Arti did a dance for her groom, followed by a performance by her sister, and then another by her sister and cousin.

After that Atri's sister and cousin did a skit that was basically making fun of Gautam, detailing their coutrship and then future as a married couple. It was hilarious even if it was all in Hindi!

I LOVE this shot of Gautam!

Atri getting her amazing wedding Henna done:

Dancing! The second picture is Gautam's mother. I love how expressive she was, always laughing and smiling!

Arti & her mom:

Near the end of the night the 2 families broke up and played a game where they took turns singing. I think it was a competition to see who was best. I think Gautam's family stole the show.

How sweet are they?

Stay tuned soon for images from the wedding day!


All the decor was done by the amazing talent of Partyland Flowers & Decor who happen to be relatives of Arti! Everything was just stunning!

And amazing catering by Tandoori Nights! YUM SOOOOOOOO GOOD!
