If there’s a family we would like to be adopted by, it’s the Dhanpal’s.  It was an honour to be able to document Chandana’s wedding. It has been a blast to hang out with these folks three times over, and we are  kind of sad that it’s over!. Now more than a client, Chandana has become a friend.

Chandana & Akshay was intoduced to us by a classmate . It takes a wonderful guy to match someone like Chandana, and that he is. You can see it in his eyes when he looks at her. Her world is his :-p, you could see that as well 😀 .

This wedding was wedding of  outpouring love, thoughtfulness and togetherness. It’s basically a group of friends and family who all love each other. Everyone seems comfy and at home.

The wedding was nothing short of big celebrations. It was complete, detailed wedding with Haldi, Sangeeth, mehendi & rituals which would tie Chandana & Akshay for their life.

We have tried the blog post to keep it short. Honestly we had so many pictures which would tell some amazing stories, it was hard to keep it short.

And meet the most adorable uncle & aunty.

This is our personal favourite moment. It was during the welcome ceremony. Akshay was put into test! I had warned Akshay, Dude be careful :-p. So group of bridesmaids would be covered with duppatta & Akshay was asked to identify his bride. While he was identifying, Chandana would arrive from the back and surprise him.

Reception was followed by Haldi. I guess this was the event which everyone was looking forward to. Akshay’s cousins were extremely generous in applying haldi.

And the star of Haldi event was Chandana’s father. If you ever get to attend a Haldi event with uncle, you cannot escape his generous hands :-p. Even we were not able to escape haldi from his hands 🙂 .

We loved his energy. We were teasing him that at this rate you will get line of girl for this young man by tomorrow.
