You can imagine our delight when Medhavi sent in this dazzling wedding she had recently shot in Jacksonville Florida. Here are the pics from this gorgeous gorgeous Gujrathi Wedding, that was complete with a resplendent Mehendi, a glorious Haldi and an elegant reception ceremony.

Bride and Groom: Vaidehi and Jignesh

Wedding Venue: Jacksonville Florida


The Mehendi ceremony at the bride’s home the day before the wedding…


The Haldi or turmeric paste has antispetic properties. This ceremony is an important part of the Hindu wedding rituals. Not only does it make the bride/groom more radiant for their upcoming wedding; it is an important part of the bridal solaah shringar as well.

The Mehendi artist sometimes hides the ‘name of the groom’ in the bridal mehendi design. We love this artist’s creativity here  in depicting the bride and groom’s faces in the design.

In many cultures around the world, the feet are seen as the Gateway to a person’s soul. Washing the bride and groom’s feet is done at the beginning of the Hindu wedding rituals.

The Bidaai or the farewell ceremony is always very emotional for brides.
