Indian Wedding on Mercer Island of Angie and Kun

On June 25th Angie Chand and Kun Yu were married in a traditional Hindu Wedding Ceremony at the Mercer Island Community Center. I love the colorful beauty of Indian weddings. Final edit is always difficult.
Here is a link to the web gallery with all of Angie and Kun’s wedding pictures.
Thanks my wife Jana for being my second photographer once again. We got a good number of great pictures. Here are some of my favorite highlights from their day.

Indian wedding ceremony in Palo Alto of Aparna and Eli

On the last weekend of May Eli Sugarman and Aparna Sridhar were married twice. First on Friday, was the Indian Hindu wedding ceremony in Palo Alto. Above they are tossing rice at each other to begin their ceremony. Surrounded by family and friends in an outdoor setting in the hills above the Stamford campus the ceremony was beautiful and joyful.  In another post I will follow up with some pictures of their San Francisco wedding on the day after this ceremony.

Here is a link to the web gallery with all of  Aparna and Eli’s  wedding pictures from the day.

Here is a selection of some of my favorite highlights of their day. At the bottom is a slideshow of a more complete set of images of their wedding.

Sikh Wedding photography and Punjabi wedding photography from a Sikh and Catholic wedding in Seattle.

Rouella Mendonca and Harneet Singh were married on one of those gray cloudy days we have in mid-February. Just before sunset, after their second wedding ceremony of the day, a glimmer of sunlight worked its way through the gloom. The sky in the picture above should give you some idea of what the light was like. Yet Rouella and Harneet were so happy – it could have been pouring and it would not have mattered to them.

Coming from different faiths, they decided to celebrate their marriage with two ceremonies, reflecting their Sikh and Catholic denominations. The Sikh ceremony took place at the Sikh Centre Of Seattle in Bothell. The beautiful and simple rite was accompanied by wonderful Indian music, and it was a delight to witness. After a meal and a break, we headed over to Blessed Sacrament Parish in the University District, where Rouella and Harneet had their Catholic wedding ceremony. This required a different wedding dress for Rouella. It was stunning to see her emerge from the rectory of the church. Her dad walked her down the aisle. Harneet looked on as she came up to the altar. The wedding party was quite small, with just two grooms men and two bridesmaids.

This was one of the hardest set of wedding pictures I have had to edit in a while, as there were so many wonderful images of the many details from both ceremonies- it hurt to leave them out! Below is my best effort of doing their wedding day justice with a small number of my favorite images. The slideshow shows a larger and more complete set of Rouella and Harneet’s wedding photos. Special thanks to Megan Keller of a KURANT EVENT for the great work she did organizing and planning the events, and to my second photographer Monica Frisell.

Here is a link to the web gallery with all of Rouella and Harneet’s wedding pictures  and a link  Rouella and Harneet’s Sikh and Catholic Wedding Photos   to pictures  previewed  previously.

Seattle wedding photography  portrait of a Sikh and Catholic wedding in Seattle.

 

  Rouella Mendonca and Harneet Singh are a beautiful couple and had a wonderful wedding day. They had two wedding ceremonies in February, the first a Sikh wedding ceremony in Bothel and the second a Catholic wedding at Blessed Sacrament Church in the University District of Seattle. This large group wedding panoramic portrait was made right after the Catholic ceremony in the back of Blessed Sacrament Church. Tomorrow the rest of the pictures from their wedding will be posted here.


 Namita Singh and Gauhar Junnarkar were married in a traditional Indian Hindu wedding ceremony at  The Golf Club at Newcastle. The weather was splendid and the light was grand. The Golf Club has a great white tent where the wedding ceremony took place and it was amazingly decorated with numerous flowers. After the ceremony we went outside with all of the family members for a wedding panorama with the western sky in the background. The towers of the city of Seattle kind of look like a castle in the distance give it a certain look that makes it this is one of my favorite panoramas.
