Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the first of two weddings for Cerise & Vivek who you might remember from their recent Torrey Pines Engagement session. The first wedding was the traditional Hindu Indian Ceremony and the second wedding would be the Catholic Ceremony and “American” reception. Being able to witness and be apart of this Hindu ceremony was such a treat. Everything about it was so so so so different from the weddings that most of us are all used to seeing. Some of the biggest differences I noticed were: everything was much more light-hearted, everyone was laughing, people were walking around (there wasn’t the usual ultra quiet & don’t make a peep or move around vibe we are all used to), there was no “first kiss” or any kiss, there was no ring ceremony and there was an abundance of different prayers / traditions / ceremonies. The colors were amazing and as such it was a blast to photograph. I hope you enjoy looking through these photos as much as I did photographing it.
