India Wedding





As promised, some more photos... this time from the wedding we attended while in India. These are all of our friend, Shivaani, the bride. We were very honored and grateful to be invited to be a part of the wedding festivities, and everyone there was just wonderful to us.

I photographed two of the four days of ceremonies we attended while wearing a saree (the traditional attire for women), which for someone not used to that manner of dress was quite a challenge for me in itself. But I think I got the hang of moving around AND taking photos while wearing it fairly quickly! We were told we could wear western clothes if we felt more comfortable that way, but my philosophy is to soak up as much of the experience as possible. When in Rome, right?

I KNOW YOU! Well, I figure, I must know you, you know Shivaani, and I went to college with Shivaani, and I saw Krissy and John in your photos! Oh my god! You posted a link to these on my friend's blog in June (she is going to India; Heather at Two Timing the Cosmos) and I was JUST browsing your pictures and I almost THREW UP when I saw that Krissy and John were in your photos - AND THAT THIS WAS SHIVAANI'S WEDDING! Oh my goodness gracious, what a small, small world! Did we go to college together at Kent? Write me! geezohpetes@gmail.com!
