Vibrant Cincinnati Indian Vatna, Mehndi and Garba - 1
Jun 27, 2013
Today we are back with another gorgeous wedding
by Crimson Blu Photography
, this time to celebrate Nisha and Bhavin! Today's couple was married at the Millennium Hotel Cincinnati
in a weekend-long celebration that kicked off with a vibrant Garba. Nisha's friends and family gathered around her for the Vatna ceremony where a mustard oil and turmeric powder paste was applied to both the bride and groom's bodies as a cleansing ritual in preparation for their wedding day.
Following the Vatna ceremony, Nisha had her intricate mehndi applied complete with pictorial images of a groom riding on an elephant during a wedding baraat and a bride being carried into a wedding ceremony in a doli! In addiition to her fabulous mehndi, I am obsessed with Nisha's eye makeup. I love the little peek-a-boo green under her eyeliner - it brings such a brightness to her face and creates symmetry with her green, fushia, and gold sari!
