Philadelphia Wedding Photographers
Our team of Philadelphia wedding photographers was absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph a traditional Pakistani wedding in the city. It was such a beautiful and cultural event, and I felt honored to be able to capture all of the special moments on camera.
The wedding took place at a stunning banquet hall in Philadelphia, and the decorations were absolutely breathtaking. Vibrant colors and intricate details set the stage for a truly memorable evening.
Pakistani Pre-wedding Event: Mehndi Party
One of the most exciting parts of the wedding was the mehndi ceremony, which is when the bride and her friends and family get their hands and feet adorned with beautiful henna designs. This is typically held a few days before the actual wedding, and it’s a fun and festive occasion that’s all about celebrating the bride. The mehndi is believed to bring good luck and prosperity to the marriage, and the designs are always so intricate and beautiful. You can see highlights of the mehndi in this blog post.
The actual wedding ceremony was just as breathtaking as the mehndi. The bride and groom both looked stunning in their traditional Pakistani attire, with the bride wearing a gorgeous red and gold lehenga (a type of long skirt) and the groom donning a handsome sherwani (a type of long coat). The ceremony itself was very traditional, with the couple exchanging vows and rings in front of a large crowd of family and friends.
Getting Ready Details
As a photographer, I was in my element the entire wedding day. We started the day photographing the couple’s getting ready moments. The bride’s mother wanted to place the veil for the first time on her daughter’s head. This was a beautiful moment to capture and I highly suggest every bride get this moment photographed. All the bridal details and groom’s accessories were captured in a classy way. We want our wedding couples to remember the details they so carefully chose.
