I first heard from Venki just a few weeks before his Indian wedding at Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove was scheduled to take place. After emailing me, we spoke over the phone about the couple’s plans for a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony before he confirmed the booking. I was honored that Mrunmayee and Venki trusted me to capture their special day and was excited to finally meet them in person.

Getting ready photos at Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove:

It was an early start for Mrunmayee and Venki’s wedding at Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove, with my second photographer and I meeting up before first light to capture the getting ready preparations of both the bride and groom. Using off-camera flash and video lights, we moved between Mrunmayee and Venki’s separate suites, documenting some special moments with their parents as they gave their traditional Indian outfits the finishing touches.

I photographed Venki’s mom painting his feet and placing a bindi on his forehead before capturing some portraits of the groom beside the suite window. Meanwhile, Mrunmayee’s mom was assisting her with her final preparations before a special first look moment with her dad. We also grabbed some portraits of the bride looking stunning in her bright blue sari and got creative with a shot incorporating her hennaed hands.

Pre-ceremony portraits at Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove:

By this time the sun had come up and we headed downstairs for the first look between Mrunmayee and Venki in the courtyard of Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove. With a cloud-covered sky, we had perfect diffuse lighting as the bride walked up behind her groom before they captured their first glimpse of one another in their Indian wedding attire.

We used the time available for portraits of the bride and groom enjoying this moment together, with Venki spinning Mrunmayee before she embraced him from behind. The blue and red color of their outfits really popped against the greenery behind, with Mrunmayee showing Venki his name henna tattooed into her hand.

Ceremony photos at Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove:

It was then time for the traditional Hindu wedding at Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove to get underway, with the entire ceremony lasting just over three hours. It began with Venki processing down the aisle with his entourage of family and friends before praying to the gods and making offerings on the mandap stage. Seated with his mom and dad on either side of him, Venki performed a number of traditional Hindu wedding rituals led by the priest while extended family and friends watched on.

Mrunmayee then made her way down the aisle, with a cloth held by her male family members above her. In a similar manner to Venki, she was joined by her parents on the mandap stage to make prayers and offerings to the gods while Venki and his parents watched on. The groom then joined her on the stage, although separated by a cloth before being revealed to one another in what was a more official “first look”. Both parents poured rice over the bride and groom’s heads before they disappeared for a quick outfit change.

After returning in an orange-colored sari and white sherwani, Mrunmayee and Venki placed flower garlands around one another’s necks before circling the mandap stage together. Handfuls of rice were poured over each other’s heads, followed by colorful dots in what was a playful celebration following the official religious rites.

The wedding party then moved into the courtyard at Delta Hotels By Marriott Anaheim Garden Grove where sacred water was poured for the gods before the couple returned inside to pay their respects to both sets of parents by touching their feet. After feeding one another sweets, we grabbed a final few portraits of the newlyweds on their mandap stage, ending what had been an incredible day.
