Mailee and Robin
Mehndi and Turmeric Ceremony

Mailee and Robin’s turmeric wedding consisted of many different beautiful Hindu ceremonies that I had the absolute pleasure of documenting. The mehndi or henna ceremony and the tumeric ceremony are traditional and incredible Hindu wedding ceremonies that happen before the wedding. Blue Lotus Henna in Portland created stunning designs for the bridesmaids and female family members while Robin was rubbed with cleansing turmeric before the big day with his family surrounding him. Turmeric is not only used for cleansing, but can also come in the form of Turmeric pills and supplements, which provide a number of health benefits. I can’t wait to share the wedding from the Portland Art Museum later this week!
