Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

Britney and Rajeev's Wedding, Part 2

Here is the final post for Britney and Rajeev! Their 4 day wedding left me with a ton of great pictures.. here's some from the 3 days surrounding the wedding day.

First was the Mendhi ceremony on Thursday night. Although this is not a tradition in the area Rajeev's mom is from, they couldn't pass up on another night to celebrate! For an Indian ceremony, this is the time when the bride will have henna drawn on, but since Britney was having a traditional American ceremony, she skipped the henna until after the wedding. Everyone else enjoyed getting the beautiful adornments!


Not only were people adorned with traditional Indian wear, but so was the houseMendhiBlog-1

Sunday after the wedding, Rajeev's parents hosted a brunch at their house. I ended up getting sick, so my good friend Deshawna-www.echophotoworks.com (who second shot the wedding with me) photographed the event. All the following pictures are hers, by the looks of it, I missed a great event! I can't explain the traditions here as well since I wasn't there, but it looks just gorgeous-B+R-BrunchBlog-1The welcoming party
