Sehr & Iltifat’s Mehndi at FunAsia Richardson

Wow. What a summer it has been. With 3 to 4 weddings per month since March, things have been a little crazy around the blog, meaning blogging has been nearly non-existent. 😉  I feel like I am finally catching up on everything now and that means starting back at the beginning. So here we go…

Sehr and Iltifat were my very first wedding of the year (yes, that is how far behind I am on blog posts!) in March, and I seriously could think of no better way to start of the season than with these two. This is post 1 of 3 for them, the start of their amazing beginning of their lives together. The mehndi was held at FunAsia in Richardson, TX, but let it be known, Texans might have been in the minority here. Iltifat is from North Carolina, went to school at NC State, is in Med School at Wake Forest and finishing his masters at UNC. Whew!! Hard worker to say the least!  He had such amazing support for all of his friends and family from all over the country and to date, I have never seen so many college friends make the trip for a wedding, it was amazing.  Sehr is by far one of the coolest, sweetest, most intelligent girls I have ever met.  I am confident that if I would have met Sehr in college or elsewhere in life, we would instantly be friends, she is just that great.  Her family? Exactly the same. So loving, kind and generous, they made me and Hugo feel like part of the party.  The mehndi consists of: bride and groom’s separate (awesome) grand entrances, the rasm-e-henna ceremony, and dinner.   The night was full of “hype”, as Iltifat put it ;), love, laughter and of course dancing, who can forget the dancing…here are my favorites from the mehndi, it’s a long one. 🙂

While I was inside with the greeting party, Hugo was outside with Iltifat and his family, Hugo’s shot:

Here is the “hype” I was referring too….

Waiting for his bride…

All of Sehr’s cousins and sisters, every single one of them beautiful and amazing dancers…

Iltifat’s college friends put on an outstanding performance…

I’m exhausted (pleasantly so) looking through all these Lynette. The energy leaps out of the images. Beautiful work.
