Gagan & Shivram

Gagan and Shivram were married at the Atlanta Sikh Gurdwara and their reception followed at the Northwest Hilton.  We started with the couple on Friday at Gagan's parent's home.  It is Indian tradition for the groom and his family to travel to the bride's home to meet her family. Both families celebrated and exchanged gifts.
The next day I was able to capture the Mehndi ceremony.  This is a tradition where the bride and the female members of her family have their hands and feet painted with henna. 
Sunday...Wedding Day!  Shivram arrived at the wedding site with his family and friends in a procession known as a Baraat.  The ceremony that followed was breath-taking and colorful, steep in Indian tradition.
These are a few favorites.
