We are excited to share the Hindu wedding photos from this gorgeous wedding that took place just a few weeks ago at the Palace Hotel in downtown San Francisco. This historic venue has beautiful architecture and one of the nicest ballrooms in the entire city! Guests are mesmerized by the detailed gold embellishments, as well as, the hundreds of panes of glass that allow natural light in during the day.
We started our day with some establishing shots of the venue and the bride getting ready. Sameer, the groom, did not come for a few hours so we had plenty of time to work with the bride. Her suite was really large and had gorgeous light so it was easy to get all our detail shots of her jewelry and bridal portraits. Shveta is very beautiful and has large almond shaped eyes. She was definitely easy to get amazing shots of!
The Baraat was the highlight of the day! They had a traditional band with horns and dhol, as well as, a Bhangra dance group that led the procession down the street in San Francisco. It was awesome and when I looked up at all the skyscrapers, there were a ton of people watching from their offices and apartments and even dancing!
The wedding ceremony took place under a beautiful Mandap and after the ceremony the bride and groom were greeted by their guests and we had a few minutes for photos before they had to get ready for the reception.
The reception included an amazing dinner, slideshow, speeches, a couple performances, and lots of dancing! The day was amazing and we are so excited for these two and cannot wait to photograph more beautiful Indian weddings at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
