This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing quite the event! It was a 60th birthday party of an Indian man. His son planned the incredible party in his honor. When I got there, I was so happy to see that all of the women wore the traditional Indian sarees and churidars, and they all looked gorgeous in them!
As the evening went on, I learned that I was not simply at a 60th birthday party. It is tradition that when the father turns 60, he and the mother renew their vows. They had a ceremony that morning and the party in the evening. The parents exchange garments and cut the cake, and everyone has such an amazing time! They really showed me a great evening! Everyone at the party was outgoing, happy, and a joy to be with!
As the night was coming to an end, they made sure I did not leave without trying their food! They had fish, chicken, rice, and everything you can image: all spicy and delicious!
While I was enhancing the photos from that night, I smiled from ear-to-ear as I saw pictures of the dancing and all of their smiling faces. This will be an event that will stay with me forever!
