Neeru and Bodhi’s Wedding | Rancho De Las Palmas

I am very excited to be finally sharing these photos with you. They are long overdue. Neeru and Bodhi were married back in September at Rancho De Las Palmas in Simi Valley. This is the first time I had been to this location, and I really loved working there. There were so many place to take photos that it was hard to choose where to go first – a photographer’s dream! Neeru and Bodhi were great to work with. They were so comfortable in front of the camera that it made my job too easy. I had shot Neeru’s sister’s wedding a couple of years ago as well as another couple that were guests this day. I LOVE seeing past clients again and this being my third wedding with this group, I started seeing many familiar faces. Such a treat:-)

Neeru was a stunning bride and the gorgeous, vibrant colors and traditions that I love about shooting South Asian weddings made this a fantastic day! Please enjoy….

Bodhi’s Baraat included a horse of sorts – a Ford Mustang!!

A curtain is held in front of the groom while the bride walks down the aisle. This tradition goes back to when Hindu marriages were arranged and the bride and groom had never laid eyes on each other before the ceremony.

This is one of my favorite photos – even though the curtain was somewhat sheer, the anticipation to fully see each other for the first time that day was amazing.

After the curtain is moved, it’s tradition to see who can throw rice on each other the fastest. The winner would then become the dominant in the relationship. I’ve seen this many time and the bride wins every time:-)Neeru did as well, this was just Bodhi reciprocating.

Their clothes are tied together as a symbol of the permanent union. This is where the phrase “tying the knot” comes from.

Congratulations Neeru and Bodhi!!
Wishing you a lifetime of happiness:-)
