Mehendi & Sangeet at the Ritz Carlton, Puerto Rico: Nina & Vinay
We”ve photographed close to 300 weddings and until last week had never photographed a traditional Indian wedding. We came close on a few. Things are about to change. This was a real treat for us, with all of the color, traditions and emotion. I realized that it just could not be blogged all at once, so I”m blogging the Mehendi and Sangeet today and will blog the Baraat, ceremony and reception next week. The Mehendi is where the hands and feet are painted with henna.
The darker the henna, the more love the bride will receive from the groom and his family. Thankfully, Nina”s henna turned out very dark! The Sangeet is a party where the guests entertain the bride and groom (and us too!) Stay tuned for the feature post of this wedding because it is by far one of the most amazing events we photographed this year.
Also check out the awesome engagement we did for Nina & Vinay at Castillo San Cristobal & the wedding.
