Indian weddings are something beautiful. The people, colors, and dancing – there’s beauty in the tradition and charm of an Indian wedding celebration that anyone can appreciate. Sapna and Sanjeev’s wedding in Dallas’ elite venues (W Hotel, Crescent Court) combined the traditional elements of an Indian wedding with the modern, fashionable personality that surrounds the two, creating a one of a kind wedding event. (You might remember Sapna and Sanjeev from their sultry engagement session here.) Prashe supplied the amazing decor in addition to the custom wedding fashion worn by the bride, groom and wedding party.
We were with the wedding the entire weekend – from the mehndi (henna ceremony for non-Indians!), sangeet (big dance party!), baraat (horse down the street), to the W hotel wedding ceremony and Crescent Court reception. To say this wedding was a party is a huge understatement – I’ve never seen a group of people so passionately dance for 3 days straight.
Sapna and Sanjeev’s love was still glaringly apparent through the midst of all the dancing, however. For example, they delayed their baraat to do a first look with me – recognizing that the moment of seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day was intimately special and should be put above all.
Special thanks to Valerie Valdez for holding lights, setting up flashes, and shooting the celebration with me!
