Denver Wedding Photographer – Indian Hindu Wedding

I’ve had the opportunity to be the wedding photographer at few Hindu weddings. As with even the traditional American weddings we have around Colorado and across the country, there are variations.  Weddings may follow particular traditions, but even within those traditions, couples often like to make their wedding special to them. I love seeing those personal touches that make weddings unique. The one thing that seems to remain the same in American weddings, however, is that the ceremony happens within one day. Not in the more traditional Indian wedding though! Often times Indian weddings last 3 days! And this one was no different! That’s a lot of celebration and ceremony! The particular ceremony I’m showing here was filled with many ceremonial elements– of course there’s the wonderful henna, the groom being welcomed by the males of the bride’s family, the separation with the sheet, the sharing of the garlands, the providing of food and drink, the fire’s role, burning of the rice, and feeding the fire with ghee, circling the fire while tied together, placing the bride’s foot on the stone, whoever sits first determines who will rule the marriage (it was the bride!!), and many other key elements. I find it all very beautiful and so much fun to photograph! For a Denver wedding photographer, there doesn’t seem to be as many opportunities to do this type of wedding photography like in some other more culturally diverse cities like New York City or San Fransisco. But there certainly is a community here and I look forward to future Hindu weddings or other types of cultures’ celebrations of marriage– I just love wedding photography!
