Shamim & Zainab – Mehendi Sangeet

Rose-Lily was honored to be a part of our first 2 day Wedding with Zainab & Shamim.  As a part of traditional Indian culture, the day before the Wedding couples will have a celebration (known as a ‘Mehendi Sangeet’) that’s made up of two ceremonies.  One is called ‘Mehendi’ (which means ‘Henna’) and one is called Sangeet (which means ‘Singing’).  It was an amazing night!  We met up with the happy couple and their family & friends at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center’s Maritime Event Center at the Seattle waterfront on 08/07/15 in the early evening while there was still a lot of beautiful evening light.  We were amazed by the incredible amount of effort that went into the performances & dedications that were a part of this special event!  The traditional Indian attire was also absolutely stunning for both the men & women!  After the last quest gave their best wishes, everyone went on to enjoy an incredible buffet dinner (courtesy of Bell Harbor) and then danced the night away!  There were also 2 very talented Henna Artists doing some incredible work with the quests throughout the night!  We wrapped up around midnight & headed home to get plenty of rest before their big Wedding the following day!  It was a special night for our very special couple!

    Andie, Andre and Rebecca ~ Family Session

    Rose-Lily caught up with Andie, Andre and Ms. Rebecca for a Family Session at the Mukilteo Lighthouse last month with some amazing results!  This location is very special to Andie & Andre since it was 3 years ago that the happy couple tied the knot at this very same location!  A lot has changed over the last 3 years, their careers & the arrival of Ms. Rebecca in the last year have kept them busy to say the least!  So it was wonderful to be asked to meet them back at the Lighthouse 3 years later for this very special family session!  We had beautiful sunlight & were able to keep Rebecca interested for most of the session (even we can only be so entertaining to the toddlers of the world)!  It was a great day, a lot of fun & we did some great work!  Check out these highlights!
