Park Winters Indian Wedding
Shooting this Park Winters Indian Wedding was awesome. And Hot – very, very hot. I remember it well because during the Indian ceremony, I wanted to hug the person who brought glasses of water to everyone so nobody fainted.
As always, I loved working at Park Winters – that venue is gorgeous – and loved working with Jade and Bhavin. They were so sweet and funny!
First, they had the Baraat (groom procession – minus the horse) with the guests dancing and walking alongside the groom to meet the bride’s family, the Vara Satkaarah, during which the bride’s mom blessed the groom. Meanwhile the bride was getting ready with Indian clothes and golden jewelry.
As Jade walked to the Mandap and her groom, escorted by both uncles, Bhavin couldn’t see her. Then they had the multiple steps, without which the marriage would not be considered complete like the offerings to the fire, the exchange of floral garlands, the Saptapadi (when the bride and groom have their garments tied together), the walking around the fire, the advices given by family members to the bride, whispered into her ears…. and more.
After the Hindu ceremony, they changed clothes to have a second ceremony, followed by the typical Cocktail hour and Reception dinner and dancing.
What a fun and warm wedding! Thank you Jade and Bhavin for allowing me to capture your precious memories!
