This was an amazing wedding to photograph!!!
Ethan and Anaar come from very different backgrounds. Ethan comes from a Jewish lineage and Anaar is half-Indian. They are both very spiritual and deeply committed to their beliefs and values. The wedding was structured as a two day event with Indian hors d’oeuvres and traditional Indian dancing on Saturday evening and the ceremony on Sunday. The location for the Saturday festivities was the Harmony Hill Retreat center set against a gorgeous backdrop of the Catskill Mountains. I especially loved the labyrinth that provides the perfect atmosphere for a walking meditation. This wedding weekend was so detailed and fascinating, that I found it impossible to combine both days into one post – so here is the Day 1 of the wedding celebration 🙂
