I love photographing Indian Weddings – there are so many incredible traditions that are included that make for amazing photos and Dipti + Amit had a gorgeous day – I so enjoyed meeting their families and documenting their day for them. Karin + Peyton from Encounters Events were the coordinators – Both my sister and I have known them from the start of my business and I always LOVE working with them! You know it is going to be a well orchestrated, organized and fun day when they are at the helm.
The wedding was at The Chesapeake Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MD. If you haven’t been there it is a huge property right on the Choptank River with lots of space for a large wedding such as this one.They started off with the Barat, which is a tradition in which the Groom and both families formally meet outside where the wedding will take place. They usually play loud music and sometimes the groom rides up on a horse ( or Elephant if you can find one!). They then had the formal ceremony under a bright Mandap – which is the Altar. It had many beautiful parts to the ceremony including a fire burning at the center of the Mandap and exchanging of flowers and gifts.Dipti wore henna on her hands and feet and was adorned in the most incredible sarees – she had one for the ceremony and another for the reception. The colors and the food were fantastic and we were so happy to be able to be a part of it.
Congrats you guys! It was an amazing day!
