” Everything is wonderful. Life and colors are wonderful “
I had the honor of capturing Chandani and Mayank Hindu Destination Wedding in Puerto Rico. The day comprised of a full Hindu ceremony and a very lively reception party at El Conquistador Resort. It was my first time as a Puerto Rico Wedding Photographer that I documented a Hindu Wedding and I felt in love with it. The wedding was full of colors, flowers, traditions and culture. I was so bless that they choose me as their Hindu Wedding Photographer.
The wedding ceremony is entirely traditionally and at least partially in Sanskrit; considered by Hindus as the language of holy ceremonies. The Hindus attach a lot of importance to marriages, the ceremonies are very colourful, and the total celebrations may extend for several days. The rituals and process in a Hindu wedding vary widely. Nevertheless, there are a few key rituals common in Hindu weddings. Chandani and Mayank assured that their wedding had everything of this. They walk around the fire, with part of each other’s clothing tied to each other. After Saptapadi, the couple are considered husband and wife. We have time for couples portraits and after all of this there was no intention of stopping the bride and groom’s family planned to host an extravagant Reception at New Grand Atlantic Ballroom at EL Conquistador Resort. Chandani and Mayank’s family and friends practiced for weeks to perform dances for them. It was so touching to see all of this. Mayank surprised Chandani with a performance with his friends. It was the moment of the night. That put a big smile on the bride’s face and everybody enjoy that moment. It was a pretty awesome wedding.
