Boston, MA Mehndi Ceremony for Allie at the Taj

{Back Blog} - Event Date: November 6, 2013

Location: Taj Hotel Boston, Boston, MA


Allie is one of those people who is so incredibly kind, friendly, funny, and amazingly down to earth all in one. I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her Mehndi Ceremony.  Beforehand, I researched what Mehndi was all about and learned that it's really something pretty incredible. Mehndi is applied in a decorative pattern to the bride's hands and feet a few days before her wedding. The medicinal properties of the Mehndi actually help to keep the bride healthy and calm as she prepares for her wedding day. There are also several fun aspects, like the darker the Mehndi, the stronger the marriage, and the artist typically hides the groom's name in the pattern for him to discover! I loved being a part of this ceremony with Allie and her family.
