Well we took these before they had their Mendhi which is the Henna Ceremony- The traditional art of adorning the hands and feet with a paste made from the finely ground leaves of the Henna plant. The term refers to the material, the design, and the ceremony. It is tradition for the names of the bride and groom to be hidden in the design, and the wedding night is not to commence until the groom has found both names. After the wedding, the bride is not expected to perform any housework until her Menhdi has faded away. And here they are, some photos that Ameesh and Anissa and I went out and took around the Jefferson and Capitol Building right before the Mendhi. The wedding was the next day, so keep an eye out for those, coming soon!
