Love is in the air!!

While most of you were picnicing and vacationing at the beach, I was in Bloomsburg photographing a two day wedding! 
I had the honor of taking pictures for Jenny and Saad Amin's Indian wedding Celebration. This wedding was by far the most colorful wedding I've ever been part of. The silk sari's were breathtaking, and the traditions were so interesting. 
Friday night there was a small ceremony where family and friends exchanged gifts and formally wished the bride and groom happiness in their lives. They also took a yellow paste and put it on jenny and Saad's forehead. Apparently the yellow paste is used to give the bride and groom a healthy glow for the wedding the next day. After the yellow paste the friend or family member fed the couple something sweet. 
Saturday was the ceremony where different traditions were performed and and a perfect reception took place. The food was so so so good, it was a tad spicy, but I loved it. After the food everyone joined together to dance! Everyone looked like they were having a great time. I know I did. 
Here are a few pictures from the wedding!
