Day number two of this three day long Indian wedding that I photographed in Minneapolis consisted of the Mehndi celebration. Bride and groom Rosina and Matt were dressed in traditional clothing, and both of their families came together for a huge feast and festive celebration. A relative’s warehouse was decorated with elaborately colorful drapes, lanterns, props and ornamental furniture provided by Caidal Events, who flew in all the way from Miami just for this wedding. A beautiful feast was catered by Jay Mariadoss and featured plenty of traditional Indian and Indian fusion dishes.
After the bride and groom’s grand entrance, they were seated, and a choreographed dance performance was put on by Rosina’s family members. Afterwards, the dance floor opened up for everyone, and the guests showered Rosina and Matt with money as a traditional symbol for wishing them prosperity in their marriage.
