I worked for this wedding this past weekend, It was quite a wedding I have to say… Usually when work for a wedding, my part is usually just bridal mehndi on one evening and the mehndi party the next evening at the most( for a Indian wedding). But Carrie and Ajay’s wedding was a lot more than that, they are a gorgeous looking couple with style for sure and quite successful! they do have it all! Carrie found me online in the beginning of the year to do henna for her wedding and she also expressed her immediate needs, help with her wedding invitation(which was mentioned in this blog in Jan). So I was able to supply the henna design portion of the invitation and she loved it .
So, this past weekend was the wedding. Friday morning they had a photo shoot in the photographer’s studio in both white gown(Oscar De La Renta) and Indian outfit(Choli and lengha). I was there to apply Luxe Glow to go with her Indian outfit(aqua/silver) after she is done with the white gown shoot. Then the plan was to go to her Luncheon and change the color to go with her maroon sari that she was wearing for the evening henna party. but, we were running so behind we they needed to go straight to the rehearsal after the shoot.
This is what she looked like for the shoot!! so gorgeous!!
her lengha was so amazing too, I loved it. but It’s quite heavy, it felt like about 25lb.. I helped them pack and I lift this up :O
I applied Luxe Glow on both arms in silver with crystals and teal glitter gel.
She looked like she just walked out of a magazine!
since I didn’t have time to fix the color during lunch for the evening, I arrived early for the party and waited… However, the UN convention traffic held up everyone and most people were late including the bride who was supposed to arrive early ( so it was a many waiting moments on Friday. But the party was a lot of fun, many people were excited about Luxe Glow and really beautiful saris and dresses I saw there!
Had a couple drinks, after work and went home with a good buzz
