Mehndi and Sangeet Celebrations Chicago Wedding Photographer
This wonderful event all started nearly a year ago when I met Shobha and her parents for the first time at a wedding show in Chicago one chilly Sunday morning. Little did I a realize at the time that this one time encounter would result in one of the most fun filled weddings that I have ever had the opportunity to witness and photograph. Shobha and her parents immediately liked what Hannah and I were showing at our booth that morning so much so that it wasn’t much longer before we were booked to photograph Shobha and Jagan’s wedding in August of this year!
The fun all started at Shobha’s parents home where Shobha was joined by members of her parent’s family and close friends. They celebrated together her traditional Mehndi that afternoon and followed with dinner. The Mehndi was performed by the talented Unnati Shah, a local Mehndi artist.
The following evening another gathering was held at Centennial Park in Munster, IN in honor of Jagan’s parent’s family and friends. Then Friday night was the much anticipated Sangeet. Oh my, what an evening of color, dancing, solos, jokes and lots and lots of laughter! The tone of the evening was set by a moving solo song by Shobha’s father. There weren’t many dry eyes after that! But this was just the beginning of the festivities for the weekend! Below are a few of our favorites from theses three events we hope it gives you a taste of the good time that everyone was having. Next up will be photos for their actual wedding day.
It’s hard to imagine but things got even better!
