So much attention and detail goes into a bride getting ready for her big day, and Anisha is no exception. Here is the blushing beauty getting all dolled-up to marry the man of her dreams in an Indian ceremony in Washington, as seen through the lens of Jerome Tso Photography. Hair and makeup artist, Arianna Scott, gives Anisha a natural, sun-kissed glow, using shimmery gold shadows and a glossy rose lip. I adore the stunning dotted mehndi design by Sarahenna that adorns the bride's delicate fingers. And this bride is clearly all about color because she follows up her vibrant sangeet sari with a bright green, fuchsia and gold one she found in India for her wedding day! She looks fabulous! There's a lot more to come, but check out extra getting ready images in the gallery!
From the bride, on the bridal fashions:
"I did search the Internet for hours upon hours, but I realized it actually is more confusing- I ended up finding both my wedding and reception outfits on the spot inside the actual shops. For my wedding sari, I knew I wanted to wear silk, as that is the traditional Marathi wedding sari. It is actually traditionally a certain style, called Paithani, an elegant yellow sari with a border- but I decided to save that for my haldi ceremony and do something totally out of the box for the wedding. So I went to the best South Indian silk shop in Mumbai and found a gorgeous green sari. I saw it, put it aside, looked at 10-15 other saris, but my eyes wouldn't stop wandering back to the first one! That's when I knew I had found my wedding sari. For my reception lehnga, I drove from Seattle to Vancouver B.C. with my parents on a whim to look at wedding outfits at a designer's boutique called Well Groomed. I tried on a beautiful purple sparkly lehnga for fun, but when I saw the look on my dad's face (he loved it!), I knew this was the one. We bought it on the spot and felt both excited and relieved."
"Wedding planning was like being on vacation from life for a whole year. While I still worked full-time, I got to come home to my parents and talk about colors, food, outfits, gifts, and dances every night! It was literally what I had been looking forward to ever since I knew I wanted to marry my now husband. I would have to say the most magical part of it was being able to travel to India and shop for my perfect wedding outfit with my Mom, Grandmother and my Mami (Aunt). Being immersed in the rich culture of India itself just made the process seem more real and I felt so lucky to have been able to enjoy that entire experience."
