South Asian Wedding Reception: Poonam & Chinmay

08.30.2011

The vibrant colors. The mellifluous music. The colorful saris. The delicious food. The nonstop dancing.

There’s nothing quite like an Indian wedding.

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of second shooting an Indian wedding reception at the Hilton Garden Inn in Lewisville alongside my friend Vanessa. This was my very first experience with a South Asian wedding and it was delightful. I loved all the colors of all the different saris guests wore, along with the intricate beading work, and beautiful jewelry.

The lovely couple, Poonam and Chinmay, married in their native India, but live and work in Dallas, so they had a large Dallas wedding reception and invited all their local friends and family to celebrate.

Cousins and nieces of the couple performed dances while Poonam and Chinmay watched.

Guests danced the Dandiya Raas, a traditional Indian dance with sticks.

I think the little ones wanted to get in on the action too.

It was a super fun experience photographing an Indian wedding reception. I would love to shoot more South Asian weddings in the future, for sure!

Many thanks to Vanessa for having me along!
