Valerie & Marty ~ Hindu Wedding @ Westin Westminster

colorado indian wedding ceremony hindu westin westminster colorado

Marty & Valerie are the kind of people who exude a joy that is infectious and vibrant. Expressive. And fun. So. Much. Fun. They are sweet and funny, and so clearly adore each other. Their Colorado destination wedding at the Westin Westminster was a blending of families and cultures and traditions – a perfect reflection of them. Their personalities and backgrounds were infused into every aspect of their wedding day, from the multiple wedding outfits (Indian and western), to the multiple priests (Hindu and Christian), to the multitudinous wedding party (20!). And lest I forget: a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle wedding cake. Perfect. :) A few favorites..

Last week I posted Valerie’s Colorado bridal mehndi on the blog.. but here are a few wedding day getting ready moments..

Colorado Bridal Henna ~ Valerie’s Wedding Mehndi

colorado indian wedding bridal mehndi hennaBefore I launch into all the fabulousness from Valerie and Marty’s wedding day at the Westin Westminster, I have to backtrack.. to the very beginning stages of the bridal prep. Because you know me, I love the details. The little things. And the bridal henna is one of my favorite details of all – it’s just so beautiful and intricate. Anita at Hummingbird Henna Design is incredible at the art of mehndi and it was such a pleasure watching her work her magic. I just loved being there to capture these quiet moments with Valerie..colorado indian wedding bridal henna mehndicolorado bridal mehndi westin indian wedding ceremony
