Saqi and Tejas in Bethesda, Maryland

When I met with Saqi and Tejas at their incredible pad in here in the Boston area I was heading to Mumbai, India. We spoke about their wedding and I was off to discover just a small part of the wonderful country of their heritage. The sights and sounds of India made me realize that their DC-area wedding would be a sight to behold–and photograph!

Their wedding celebration, stretching over 2 days, from the Sangeet to Baraat to the ceremony and reception were a beautiful and very colorful affair filled with a cacophony of laughter, music, prayer and pure fun!  I’m absolutely sure that a true Indian wedding celebration is 90% for the guests enjoyment. As a wedding photojournalist this was pure eye-candy. I asked my good friend and stellar photojournalist, William Plowman, to take a short brake from his usual coverage of the goings-on up at Capitol Hill to help me with this one and I could not have covered all the details as well as Leslie Duss did as our super-assistant for the day–thank you to both.
