A Hennaed Bride

I had an appointment with a beautiful bride who married an Indian man. They were having two ceremonies, one traditional western and one traditional Indian. She wanted me to henna her palms, but leave the backs of her hands clear for the western ceremony, and she also wanted her feet hennaed. She picked out a few different designs that she liked and I fused them together to come up with a beautiful design for her wedding henna.
She took very good care of her henna that night, as you can see from how dark and unsmudged the design is, thus showing her mother-in-law how much patience she will have as a wife. And I'm awfully proud of the dark, rich color of the henna too!

I was fortunate enough to get these images from her photographer, Jim Sanders. Aren't they rich and gorgeous?! These photos were taken during the Indian ceremony, while the bride is wearing her Indian style wedding Sari and colorful bangles.
