Hetal and Harendra were married in January at their Hindu Samaj Temple of Mahwah wedding.
They didn’t see each other all morning until Hetal was escorted into the building.
She climbed up to the stage and then was revealed to her soon-to-be husband!
Hindu ceremonies are just so beautiful. Typically, they last between 1-2 hours, and food is even served in-between for wary guests.
With lots of moving parts and symbolism, the guests often get involved, too!
In this particular case, the groom’s family is from South India so there wasn’t a baraat in the beginning where the groom enters on a white horse. But the loud music began and Harendra danced his way into the room surrounded by loved ones.
About the Couple
“We love to spend time by the waterfront. Harendra is fond of techno music and I, myself, am more of stay-in person. I guess that’s why they say opposites attract!”
Maybe opposites attract, but these two were naturals together in front of the camera.
After the ceremony ended, we whisked the couple outside to bear the wintry January chill. The sunset is so early in the winter, that we just HAD to bring them outside in time for golden hour!
The sun was low and golden as Harendra and Hetal played around. They not only were amazing at the serious & smoldering poses, but had so much fun together and were super playful! Their chemistry was undeniable.
Congratulations again to the newlyweds, Hetal & Harendra!
