to hold onto in life
Each couple has a story. Ours started on July 15th 2005 when I realized I wanted to marry her. I was so excited I wanted to tell my best friend, so I turned to Loraine and got down on my knees and told her how I felt. -Josh

Olathe KS Embassy Suites Indian Wedding Ceremony
Just before the sisters niece and cousin of the bride walk down the aisle and procession Rhythm of Dreams started off by singing and hosting the Indian Wedding ceremony. Then after the groom entered with both his mother and soon-to-be mother-in-law his family started a protein with gifts to the bride.
I don’t know why, but I always love when the father gets to wash the groom’s feet moments before his daughter arrives. It is extremely humbling to me that his father symbolically and physically cleans his soon-to-be son-in-law.
As a bridesmaid and the bride’s family enter you could almost feel the entire environment of the room change in anticipation! Of course with the little ring bearer coming in claiming to have lost the rings that mood turns into laughter.
And then Priya and walks in with her parents on either side bringing her to her groom to be wed. I absolutely love the stunning garlands! They were fabulous, delicate, luxurious all wrapped in one!
In the meanwhile, as everything is happening on stage, Cindy from Too Rooster Artistry quietly paints the lovely scene from her perspective. A scene with bright colors, matching those in the wedding!
There are many symbolic parts in a Hindu wedding and all of them are very visually appealing. It is so lovely to see as they walk around the flame with his family on one side and hers on the other they throw petals at them and good wishes.
Now, this is not just any ring box! This is an amazing scene that the groom created for his bride. It is a peacock hauling her new wedding band in stow.
Cindy adds finishing touches to the life painting she has been creating.
This part is typically the most emotional beautiful part in all of the Indian weddings that we capture. It is when the bride says goodbye to her family because she will soon be leaving. Even though there will be a reception at the same venue afterwards this still is the moment the family really says goodbye. The emotions are very obvious, Priya will be missed among her family members.
We were so grateful that Priya and Ashish were able to find this car through Showtime Transportation! Even though they are a limo company, they were able to provide a car for the couple to ride off in. It is not everyday that we get to take pictures of a Stingray Corvette ZO6! It was their farewell car. It’s always fun when sisters and cousins stand in front calling fun. While her aunt anoints the car. Moments before they drive off as a married couple.
