Indian Wedding Photography | Amisha & Morty

Happy Wednesday everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  And now… it’s time to get them Christmas decorations up.  Gavin and I already got our Noble Fir up, the stockings are hung, and now we just need presents under the tree.  You know what that means… SHOPPING!! =) I’m so excited and absolutely love this time of the year.

For some couples, it was love at first sight!!  But for Amisha and Morty, well… let’s just say that wasn’t exactly the case. They first met at a house party in the summer of 2006.  At the time, they both had significant others and funny enough Amisha couldn’t stand Morty!! It took a little bit of time (actually a whole year) for them to warm up to each other.  And that warmth turned into a friendship, and when the timing was right became a passionate romance.  A love that is now sealed by the bonds of marriage.

Amisha and Morty are a fun and beautiful couple and their Indian wedding was nothing short of that. Their Indian wedding was filled with vibrant colors, ornate details and not to mention a ton of delicious food!! Yup… they sure know the way to their photographer’s heart!! =) Aside from all the deliciousness, I love shooting Indian weddings because they are rich with traditions.  There’s one fun and light-hearted tradition (game) that reminds me of Chinese weddings… and that is making money at the Groom’s expense. [Haha.]  Prior to the start of the ceremony, the Bride’s sister and cousins would try to steal and hide the Groom’s shoe.  On the other hand, the Groom’s side tries to protect the shoe.  However, in the end, the bridesmaids usually successfully steals the shoe and will not return it until the Groom gives them a huge sum of money.

Stealing of the shoe (as I mentioned earlier).

Another fun tradition.  Whoever throws the rice first gets the upper hand in the marriage. =)
