Merrin & Mathews-Mylanchi & Chantham Charthu

May was one of my busiest months as far as photos goes, but I still wanted to share with you one of my favorite events from May! On Memorial Day weekend I had the chance to capture Merrin & Mathews Mylanchi & Chantham Charthu celebrations. Merrin & I actually went to church together back in the day and I always remember seeing her running around with the other younger girls. I was able to capture her sweet proposal as well! My father is Knanaya and I've been to a few Mylanchis before, but I actually have never been to a Chantham Charthu! To sum it up, this is an event in the Knanaya community where they get the bride & groom ready the night before the wedding with family and friends. There's tons of traditions, feeding the bride and groom, dances, and everyone is super hype for the wedding! Let me tell you, these people were ready to party! I had a blast capturing such a fun event. Check out some of my favorite images!
