Niyati and Alok’s amazing four day Indian wedding celebration started off on Thursday night, June 16h, 2011 at her parents house in Westlake.  Both Niyati and Alok went to Westlake High School and their parents still reside in the area.

The first night is the Mehndi where hands and feet are painted – Niyati, however, already did hers the night before (it takes a fwe hours on the bride and for the ink to dry).  The next morning is a short Hindu ceremony in their house, before heading off to the Garba that night.

So how does one photograph a four day wedding?   Coffee and and vitamin I-buprofen.  A bonus:  Niyati’s dad was feeding me and my second photographer Ashley Amy’s ice cream.  For those of you that aren’t familiar with Amy’s ice cream, it is delicious and local to Austin and it is sooo good due to the milk fat content 🙂   But it works well for me since it allows me to store energy throughout the night.

Here are some photos from the night and the ceremony at noon the following day (Garba photos will be in the next post).
