Saima+Imran: Part 2…Imran’s Mehndi || Dallas Wedding Photographer

I so meant to get this posted a couple days ago, but I have been working like crazy trying to finish up Saima & Imran’s custom client site (it is going to be awesome!) and the blog post got pushed back a couple days, sorry!   Anyways, these shots are from day 2 of their wedding festivities, Imran’s Mehndi.  This was held at Imran’s house (which is completely gorgeous BTW) and he had a lot of his family and friends from out of town come in to celebrate with him and his family on this huge occasion, which really showed me what a huge respect they have for marriage…a lot of the guests were from outside the Dallas area, but made the trip down here just for this and that is just plain awesome!

This was pretty much all made up of Imran’s family (which I quickly realized is a big family!) and close friends.  Most of the women in his family had their henna done this night, and it was so beautiful and very intricate.  I was really amazed at the women who did the henna….talk about steady hands!  Wow.  That really has to be a skill that gets perfected time after time, because they were pretty quick, but every line was spot on.  While the ladies caught up with each other, sang and had their henna done, they guys watched on intently as Cleveland played Orlando in Game 2 (where LeBron had that amazing game-winning buzzer shot)…it was an awesome party.   Complete with music, singing, and some amazing food of course!  This was really my first time meeting Imran’s family and I want to tell them thank you so much for making us feel at home and welcome at such a special occasion.  Ok and now to my (many) faves of the night….

Of course, we had to get a shot of his gorgeous house!mehndi-1

I think my absolute favorite thing during all 5 days was the clothing, just stunning all around.   And every day had it’s own amazing outfit…

One of the kiddos upstairs was playing “peek-a-boo” with my second shooter, Shy.  She didn’t want her picture taken, but Shy finally got her!
