Mungni: Indian Engagement Photography: Jamila & Jibran

Ornate henna, colorful saris, and two beautiful families joining together to exchange gifts, food and good wishes– what a delight it was for Kris and I to be a part of Jamila & Jibran’s engagement ceremony! ¬†This is actually my first color-only blog post and I think you will soon see why…

Jamila was lead in by her sisters and friends with a procession of candles and flower petals:

Their grandmothers are exchanging sweets as part of the ceremony:

Each family member circled this basket for flowers around the couple and presented them with gifts.

Jamila’s mother is giving Jibran’s brother a sweet and wishing him and his wife well.

The saris are beautifulРI could not get over the variety of colors, patterns and decoration, simply stunning, ladies!

Jibran loves the TV show “The Office”, so Jamila’s family created an Office-themed gift basket including this high-five worthy T-shirt:

“Yeah, whatever. No big deal. The hottest girl in the world loves me.” I think Jibran¬†agrees¬†with Michael on that one.

Jamila’s friends are located throughout the country but they met together and created a special dance for her and Jibran.

Taha’s speech was funny! ¬†You can almost almost read it for yourself through the paper ;).

  1. Jibran is my cousin and I was sad I was unable to be at this event, thank you so much for capturing it so wonderfully!
