My friend, Marnelli and her fiancé, Sharat were getting married in a couple of days’ time, just before the new year. But before their big Saturday affair, a smaller (but just as joyful) celebration took place. When I say “joyful,” what I really mean to say is, JOYFUL! What a wonderful event to witness – a sangeet and mehndi!
Marnelli and Sharat, along with their family and friends, were dressed in beautiful traditional Indian attire. There was lots of singing, dancing and eating – staples of any celebration, and I was so honored the bride trusted me to cover such an evening. A couple of days later, these two were married. Two celebrations in three days? Of course!
