Namrata and Kaushik currently live in New York, but both grew up in India. Their wedding, held in India, was an exquisite blend of the bride and groom’s backgrounds, as Namrata comes from a modern family with a Hindu background, and Kaushik comes from a more classic Bengali family. Covering this colorful, sumptuous event involved five days of photography, beginning with Namrata’s opening pooja in her family’s home. Next was the mehndi or henna ceremony, then the cocktail party (also the first time the two families celebrate together), followed by the actual wedding ceremony, and finally, a small send-off pooja for the happy couple.
Here are just a few of some of our favorite moments and details from the spectacular festivities.
