If you think Vivian and Navreet look familiar, I have to say you have amazing memory. We blogged about her engagement session long time ago. You can check out the pictures and how they found us HERE.
They flew us to Michigan to photograph their amazing wedding. Not only the destination wedding was one of a kind, they were the nicest people we’ve ever met. It was great spending almost two full days with everyone. By the end, we couldn’t help but feel like we were part of their family. Oh and the best part was we got to make a vacation out of it and Alice finally saw the world famous Niagara Falls for the first time. Here is the blog post about that trip.
Navreet’s family welcoming Vivian’s family.
They had a little ceremony in the house for the ring exchange.
They started the Mehndi shortly after while Navreet had the Vatna Ceremony in another room.
Little kids getting their own Menhdi too, cute!
Vatna Ceremony! This looks like torture to me, but everybody was having a good time with it!! Navreet has no choice though He needs to be “cleaned” before getting married!
At least the uncles were nice enough to help him rinse all that yellow clay off
Amazing!! Indian Weddings have the most extravagant accessories for the brides.
Navreet is getting his “makeup” done before the wedding ceremony.
While Navreet is riding on top of the horse like a king, everybody danced and paraded down the street letting the whole world know he is getting married! I love it!!
Love this shot of the moms!
Navreet has to give Vivian’s bridesmaids something, preferably money, before he can step inside for the ceremony.
Tossing rice over for good luck. This seems to be a common tradition for many cultures.
What a fun grand entrance to the reception!
Thank you for having us there Vivian and Navreet! We had an amazing time!!!
