Henna

A Stunningly Gorgeous, Beautifully Flawless, Colorful Indian Wedding

The pale color of Asna's nails against her STUN NING henna, the lavish saree, and all of glimmering jewels, makes me feel as though Asna just stepped out of Bollywood. Right? Seriously, she is just so glam that I can hardly take it! I mean... We can't even see all of her lovely face, and yet we just know that she is an exquisite woman. 

Anyway, I believe this shot was taken the day before she and Syed tied the knot. I love that they carved out some time to have together before the beautiful chaos of their wedding celebration began. I'll show you a few shots of them the day before, and then we'll move on to their FAB Indian wedding. Enjoy!

Lovin' the black sherwani!

I'm not going to lie... I definitely love me some gold, and the jewels above? SO SO SO awesome!

There really are no words for how glamorous Asna is... WOW! 

OMG. Those are some seriously beautiful feet. The henna, the nails, the glam! Oh my!

Great shot of the mojari shoes!

Syed! You look so handsome!

I always love seeing the B+G check each other out after the initial first look...

Amazing bouquet! I love how it's so beautifully clear against Asna's saree.

Wow! Check out all of those flowers! 

Syed, you look so incredibly happy! 

The décor is so beautiful and elegant!

I love the cascading flowers down the side of the wedding cake!

Thank you for sharing your super glamorous, and beautiful wedding with Bitchless Bride!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Beautiful Indian Christian Blend

Talk about a memorable wedding venue! How about getting married where the Obamas tied the knot in October of 1992? Right? Well, that's what Laura and Anuj did!! They got married at the South Shore Cultural Center in Chicago. And, I mean... Such an amazing venue! OMG! I think Lisa with Spark + Tumble Photography said it best when she said, "The gorgeous architecture and the foliage echoed the vibrance of their nuptials, which artfully intertwined traditions from each of their cultures." 

Bridey, here is a couple who stay true to both of their traditions (Indian and Christian), and threw an amazing party! Not only is everybody is having a fantastic time (scroll down to see the amazing "action" pics!), but the clothing and decor are absolutely sensational! So, enjoy, and feel free to take a few pointers from Laura and Anuj!

Amazing henna and a stunning sari!Love the bangles!LOVE LOVE LOVE the sherwanis the groom and his men are wearing!!Using a bicycle for the baraat? Priceless!!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Allow Me to Show You a Sand Ceremony, Henna and Tons of Purple!

I love all of the colorful details encapsulated in Jennifer and Shelia's wedding. Not only was it a beautiful day to get married, but their story is quite beautiful too! You see, both their ceremony and reception took place at the Coronado Community Center which happens to be just down the street from where Sheila had popped the question. I mean, how cool is it that their wedding essentially allowed them to share their engagement with their friends and family too? Right? LOVE IT! 

But, seriously, bridey... Check out the amazing ceremony! I do love a sand ceremony and what it represents, and I especially love the kick ass colors they choose to blend! Click on the link to see what it all means... It's pretty fucking cool.

A little note from the photographer, Jennifer Corbin: Their wedding day was an incredible day full of joy, love and emotion. The toast from Sheila’s brother was filled with laughs and tears and lots of love for his sister. One of my favorite parts was when Sheila’s cousins did a traditional dance for the newlyweds. In all honestly the day went by so quickly, and before I knew it I was saying goodbye to the sweet couple. Thank you Jennifer and Shelia for allowing me to be a part of your big day, I know I will think back on it fondly for years to come.

Beautiful henna... Simply stunning... Lovin' the purple shoes too!! 
Awwwww.... I love the first look. I really, really do!!
Incredible! I totally dig their nails too... I see a party nail!! Oh yeah!YEAH!!!!!!

A MAZ ING!!!!! Such beautifully passionate colors!!
