I met Zahir not too long before his wedding. Although he was thoroughly stressed from the wedding planning, there was that subtle hint of bliss when he was telling me about how he envisioned his wedding. This was the start of the roller coaster ride that made for one of the coolest weddings I've shot this year!
Shamleed (Arpita) warned me in the bridal suite that there will be a LOT of tears. Boy was she right. An emotion packed Mehndi ensued with quite possibly one of the best routine of dances I have seen. I have never seen so much talent & stamina, the dances lasted nearly an hour! Filled with hilarious skits, energy & a ridiculous amount of talent. My guess would be...4 months of practice.
Both Arpita & Zahir were being pampered by love from all the families. I remember that one of the family members had to go up twice to the podium to request that the Mehndi ceremony be wrapped up asap.
As always, the Mehndi day is always my favorite, the color, the tradition, the love & the dances! We had a blast capturing it all on our cameras. Can't wait to share the reception with you folks!
Enjoy the Moments!
