Ruchika & Eyone - A Beautiful Fusion Wedding at Granite Golf Club
Namrita and Amit are very good friends. They make a great couple and we have been planning a couple shoot for them for some time.Finally we decided to encash upon the lively spring season and went to this abandoned barn field. To a casual eye the barn would not present anything interesting. But being a cool couple, they both trusted our instincts and went with the flow.
We had a great time and the shoot was totally fun. The chemistry between the two love birds matches the vibrancy of spring season.
Enjoy the images.
A beautiful wedding at the gorgeous Viansa Winery Sonoma
This wedding gallery is a kaleidoscopic collection of all the hues - emotions, gestures, colorful rituals, fun moments and some images with great backdrops.
Guneet and Harry's Indian Sikh wedding was solemnized at San Jose Sikh Gurudwara, the largest Gurudwara (Sikh Temple) in North America. Two different teams went to bride and groom side to capture the getting ready moments after which everyone gathered at the Gurudwara. It was a beautiful California summer day.
Evening reception was at Paradise Ballroom, Fremont. The decor at this hall, with big chandeliers, is a delight for any shutterbug to capture, and provided a great background for some of our favorite images.
Lilly's beauty world made sure that bride looked at her best that day. And DJ Harvi Bhachu from bolpunjabde.com made guests occupy the dance floor for a long time.
Congrats to this great couple !
Thanks Guneet + Harry - for trusting us to capture your special day.
Kalire are yet another set of ornaments worn by Punjabi Brides, which further adds color to the overall wedding attire.
These are hanging ornaments worn on the hands, usually friends and sister-in-law tie Kalire to bride’s hands. They hang like beautiful chandeliers and come in a variety of colors to match bridal outfit. Kalire are encrusted with dried coconut and dried beetle nuts
Traditionally they are worn by the bride for 40 days after the wedding. Newlywed brides then don’t have to do any household work with big, jingling ornaments. Smart women.
To take those off, there is a tradition that bride rubs her hands against each other to drop the Kalire on the heads of unmarried girls, and who so ever gets the Kalire first is expected to get married within a short period.
This is similar to western weddings, where in , towards the end of the wedding celebrations, when the bride is about to depart, she throws her bridal bouquet to a group of unmarried girls following her, and whichever girl catches it is expected to get married next.
What an amazing similarity of this traditional practice, though these cultures are so different. This again reinforces the common human essence underlying everything, only expression is different. If only perpetrators of hate could understand that.
