Destination Indian Wedding

Wedding at BAPS Mandir - Atlanta, GA

Watching the artist complete Nishi's mehndi on Thursday night at her parents home in Atlanta was a special treat. As I photographed her preparations and began capturing the entrance of family and friends, I soon found myself emerssed in a group of people I'd not yet met, but who made me feel at home! 

The couple's sangeet was perfect down to every detail! From the peacock fruit spread to the massive cake to the party....I cannot wait to show you those images. (Blog post to come!)

Taking photos of the bridal preparation that Saturday morning was such a joy. Nishi chose a red & teal lengha and carefully picked out every intricate piece of jewelry to adorn her look. With her mom and aunt there to help in pinning her lengha, I was so honored to be capturing a room so full of genuine care, love, and attention to customs & details. 

When we arrived at Baps Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, after taking getting ready photos Saturday morning, I was blown away with all of the gorgeous details of the grounds and again welcomed lovingly by the couple's family and friends.

Never have I been somewhere so transportive as BAPS Mandir. This temple is a little slice of India smack dab in the middle of Atlanta, GA. At every turn there are details galore.

The couple met for their first look in the shade under the main temple. Vish was so excited to see his bride! Their shared joy and excitement was written all over their faces. Photographing there Hindu ceremony, I couldn't help but smile all day. The family & friends of the bride and groom celebrated and loved BIG.

Their entire celebration was filled with joy, grace, and elegance. I personally cannot wait to photograph another wedding at Baps Shri Swaminarayan Mandir!
