This was no ordinary Hindu wedding in Colorado Springs. This wedding was marked by color and emotion and blithe celebration. The couple smiled all day long, but their smiles were the brightest when they were looking at each other. Astha and Roberto built a beautiful, solid, occasionally uneven bridge between two very different but incredibly vibrant cultures.
When Astha and Roberto contacted us about photographing their wedding, what sold us was the food. Both had family members accompany them to the tastings to make sure that the Cheyenne Mountain Resort chefs mastered both the Indian and Mexican fare. But aside from the fact that the food itself sounded amazing, we loved the idea of the two cultures melding. When else would we have the chance to see a Hindu-Mexican wedding?
Astha and Roberto donned traditional Hindu wedding attire and processed to the mandap – Roberto on a mare, Astha escorted by her closest friends – for a ceremony both on the beach and beneath the mountains, something you don’t see often in Colorado. Following the ceremony, the couple changed into clothing that was easier to dance in and got the party started by having each table “dance for their dinner.”
But in case you think I built all this up for nothing, we’ve got photos to prove how awesome it was.
