Tanya and Tracy | The Aspen Room at The Historic Stanley Event Space Wedding

My time with Tanya and Tracy actually began the day before their wedding. I spent Friday with Tanya, her bridesmaids, and many members of her family to document the haldi and henna ceremonies. It was colorful, exciting, and joyful. Full of life. Full of various textures, intricate details, and vibrant hues. Full of wonderful photo opportunities. My favorite part of the day was the application of the haldi. Each friend and family member spent a minute or two with Tanya and a tray of rice, flower petals, and haldi (specially prepared by Tanya’s mother and aunt). It was beautiful to see each person with Tanya as they prepared her for her wedding with this wonderfully fragrant tradition. So many smiles. So much laughter. And a few happy tears.

The day continued with the henna ceremony. What an amazing talent the henna artists have!

Now, the big wedding day!

As anyone who lives in Kansas City can tell you, the weather can be a bit temperamental. Tanya and Tracy’s wedding day was no exception. We had a cloudy day. A humid day. Some sprinkles. Some downpours. Some sunshine. All within a few hours. Going from Plan A to Plan B, back to Plan A, and “waiting it out” for group formals can be a little crazy, but the wedding party rolled with the changes quite nicely and we ended up being able to accomplish everything we wanted — and more!

Altogether, the wedding day was a beautiful blend to two different cultures. A day where tradition was honored, yet met with modern twists.  The result was a day full of colorful clothing, great music, delicious food, and one of the most beautiful cakes I’ve ever seen. It was a fantastic celebration made possible by the friends and family who came together (many of whom traveled hundreds or thousands of miles) to witness Tanya and Tracy’s vows, shower them with blessings, and dance the night away!
