One of my favorite parts of the day was during the Baraat, which is the bridegoom's wedding procession. The groom rode in a horse drawn carriage, along with his sister while family and friends dance in the streets! It's kind of like a parade with music, scarves and colors flying everywhere! On Anurag's wedding day, it was over 100 degrees, yet the people danced for an hour!!! It was amazing!
Here are some things I learned:
- The more people, the better! It's all about the party! - The veiling of the bride is one of the most sacred moments. - Indian people LOOOOVE group photos! - The couple is officially considered married after they circle the holy fire 7 times. - And lastly, and most importantly, Indian people L.O.V.E. to DANCE!
It was such a great experience to work with Ajit on this wedding! Thank you so much for inviting me along!! I learned SO much about myself as an artist and about the Indian culture and I love that I was able to go out of my 'comfort zone' and experience a completely different world of weddings! Congratulations to Fior and Anurag on their amazing wedding!
