Jyoti and Manan

August 26, 2008

Jyoti and Manan were married at the American Visionary Arts Museum on July 19. Alicia Karrol the coordinator at AVAM made sure that everything was perfect in anticipation of the traditional ceremony and western style reception that followed.

The bride and groom, both of whom are physicians, were resplendent in their wedding attire – truly a visual feast! Our studio has become the image makers of choice for many Indian, Pakistani and other cultural events due in part to our familiarity with their unique traditions but primarily because we capture all of the beauty, joy and emotion that is universal to all weddings.

Look closely at the patterns on Jyoti’s hands that were dyed with henna, as were her attendants and friends. Can you find the grooms initials?

AVAM is such a fantastic location for photographs, giving us rich backgrounds that are diverse and allow us to show off the handsome couple at their very best.

Carole Langrall, our highly creative friend and owner of A Garden of Earthly Delights designed the flowers for this wedding. Her arrangements are always highly individualized and incorporate unusual and immensely pleasing elements .

Ganesha, The Lord of Success, bore witness to the ceremony
The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles.

Married and radiant!

The newlyweds changed from their wedding garb into a very classic suit for Manan and the most incredible turquoise, traditionally influenced dress for Jyoti.

Putting on the Ritz exceeded all expectations with the dinner menu and left the guests sated and feeling very much cared for.

Truly a memorable wedding and we were honored to be a part of it.

  1. Righteous! What an explosively beautiful event! One that will truly be remembered for a very long time–from the colorful dresses, to the equally colorful location and let’s not forget about those flowers! Each combined element helped create the ultimate visual banquet which Arthur and his uber-talented staff professionally (as always) captured on film to give us all a very happy memory indeed.
