I Do: Naveel + Keith (Part I)
It’s not often that I get the chance to photograph two wedding receptions, so when Naveel and Keith reached out about their full wedding weekend, I was more than ready.
I’ll be sharing their first reception today, which was filled with Pakistani traditions from the bride’s family. One of my favorite parts was when Naveel walked in with her father and brother and Keith saw his bride for the first time in a week. Naveel was at her parents’ house all week and he hadn’t seen her once as part of a tradition. Another one of my favorite customs was the “doodh pilai,” when Naveel’s sisters fed Keith milk and bartered with him for money. It was pretty darn hilarious.
At the end of the evening, the bride and groom were escorted out the door by Naveel’s family as part of the “rukhsati” or farewell.
I’ll be sharing their second reception, which took place in the adorable town of Skippack, on the blog tomorrow.
