Avni's Henna Cermony

Taking photos of Avni's henna ceremony was so much fun for me. She's the daughter of one of my former co-workers and I was honored to have been asked to capture the event. Everything was so beautifully decorated and colorful...even the ceiling was covered with a number of different color saris.

Here are just a small sampling of some of the close-ups that I captured of the finished product!

If you look closely at her left palm, you can see the face of a bride. The mendhi artist also drew a picture of a groom on the right palm so when Avni placed her hands palm up, the bride and groom were facing each other.




I attended the wedding ceremony as well and Avni made an incredibly beautiful bride. I wish her and Chirag all the happiness their hearts can handle and more!

Thanks for taking a peek!
