Poonam + Dutt’s Pre-Wedding Festivities!

Indian Pre-Wedding Photos!

It was such a pleasure to spend time w/Poonam’s family during her pre-wedding festivities. The Sangeet, Mehndi, Mandap Muhrat & Grah Shanti were held at Poonam’s parent’s home! So many friends and family members came to celebrate!

A photo of the Henna (Mehndi) being applied-

The basement was set up by the priest for their Mandap Muhrati & Grah Shanti ceremonies!

There are so many things happening during an Indian ceremony! I love capturing these action photos!

One of my favorite prewedding ceremony action photos-

I’m not an Indian wedding expert by any means…but here are some younger family members hammering in some wooded rods.

Outside of the home…the bride’s father and the men set up these wooden rods & candles.

A photo of the bride’s mom dropping in some powder into the fire-

And one last photo of the pre-wedding ceremonies! Auntie’s & uncles surround the future bride and her parents…all connected by a red & white rope.

Poonam & Dutt: Stay tuned for another upcoming post with their wedding, garba & reception photos! And if anyone reading this post can add any information about any of the pre wedding ceremony details – please leave a comment below! Thanks!

with love,

your Chicago Indian wedding photographer,
