Krina and Shawn came all the way from California to have their Indian wedding at Langdon Farms, just outside of Portland. They were super fun to photograph, and their wedding was simply amazing to capture! Krina and Shawn’s wedding was a mix of traditional and fun new elements: Krina’s pithi on Friday morning was followed later that day by a party where all the guests could mingle while getting their mehndi and their (delicious) grub on, the former by Beauty by Lishma and the latter by Monsoon Catering, all this surrounded by bindis and bangles for anyone who wanted to embellish their outfit with some sparkles and tinkling.
The big day on Saturday did not disappoint! This Portland spring cooperated enough that we could get some great shots of Krina and Shawn’s first look on the golf course and Langdon Farms. Then the baraat began: Shawn reached the ceremony site on a mare, preceded by all of his friends and relatives, and the great Malinder Tooray playing the dhol. Shawn was led inside, where Krina’s parents performed a series of blessings to ensure that their marriage is strong and happy. Krina was escorted in by her maternal uncles and the ceremony began, followed by more lovely food by Monsoon Catering during the cocktail hour and dinner.
