1 Bride, 6 Wedding Outfits! – Yorba Linda/San Jose Wedding Photography

Well I don’t have photos of all 6 of the outfits, but I’ll show you several!  I have learned so much about Indian weddings recently.  They are super fun and there are A LOT of celebrations!  I had the privilege of being a part of Palak & Simmy’s celebrations last month.

First outfit: Thursday evening Palak got her henna done.  This was super cool to watch and made me want to get some done myself sometime!

Second outfit: Friday morning, there were ceremonies at the bride’s home in Yorba Linda.  Her outfit was beautiful and it was really fun to witness the ceremonies.

AND….. outfit #6:  Simmy’s family is from northern California, and that’s where he and Palak live.  So they had a second reception in San Jose the day after Thanksgiving.  I have LOTS of photos from that so get ready!

What I love most about Indian weddings is that EVERYONE dances!  A LOT!
