Aarti and Sarin’s Oheka Castle wedding was, quite simply, a photographer’s dream. From the completely perfect lighting of the Oheka getting ready suite to the impeccable, flawlessly-on-schedule coordination from Lindsay Landman, to the just-right backlight on both the Baraat and the wedding ceremony, everywhere you looked there was a fantastic photographic opportunity. When you add to that the extraordinary warmth of both Aarti and Sarin’s families and the exuberance of their friends it all added up to yet another perfect Oheka event.

We started the day in the Oheka Castle bridal suite. Perfect size, interesting interior design, and tiny pockets of perfect light abound

The luminous color of the bride’s dress and jewelry details were a delight to photograph.

The bride and groom had tiny Bhagavad- Gita books as favors for their guests. I thought using one as a backdrop for a portrait of Aarti’s ring would be appropriate and beautiful.

Most photographers who shoot in the Oheka Castle bridal suite default to the same locations for the getting-ready images. I moved throughout the suite, looking for new and different ways to approach the scene.

The singing and chanting that led the groom towards the bride was so loud it could be heard down the entire Oheka Castle driveway!

Since the baraat begins the ceremony, emotions were running high for everyone involved.
