Wedding ceremony at Griffin Gate Marriott Lexington KY | Jackie + Neel

The morning of the wedding ceremony at Griffin Gate Marriott started early with the girls getting ready on the 7th floor. There was bustling about giggling, selfie-ing, and maybe a little dancing.

Her girls helped zhoosh a little here and a little there.

If you look closely you’ll see the N, her husband’s initial in the henna art.

Meanwhile the Baraat procession was making their way to Griffin Gate’s front entrance.

On the steps of the Griffin Gate the bride’s family welcomed the groom and his family and friends.

The bride and groom in their own blend of traditions also exchanged wedding rings.

Aunties whispered good advice and best wishes to Jackee.

The bridesmaids wore pink and gold saris, although some had never worn a sari before, you’d never know it!

We thought we’d have to walk across the golf course on foot, but a couple of the groomsmen decided to see if we could use some golf carts. We were on a golf course after all. The guys came through big. They came back with not one, not two, but seven golf carts!

 

Jackee and Neel, you are the sweetest people! I count myself lucky to have met such an amazing couple. I thoroughly enjoyed being an assisting photographer with Photography By Vinod at your wedding ceremony at Griffin Gate Marriott.
