We were hired a year before to make sure all the details came together and to coordinate the weekends events for this amazing family. We started the day with the bride getting in to her custom traditional Sari.  Hair flowers were flown in from India and woven around her up-do. The bride was dripping in delicate necklaces and bangles given to her by family members. lake george wedding photos 4 608x363 Reddy Wedding

The intricate and detailed henna went beautifully with the bride’s gold and red Sari.
