Rajaa + Badar: Columbus Ohio Indian Muslim Wedding at Jeffrey Mansion

There were so many elements to Rajaa + Badar’s fall wedding that I had been looking forward to as soon as they booked with me earlier in the year. Throughout the process they updated me on so many cultural details to expect, that I knew their Indian-Muslim wedding would be unlike anything I had captured before!

We began our day with the wedding party getting ready at Hawthorne Bed & Breakfast in Olde Towne East. The house was a really beautiful backdrop for these candid moments, particularly when Badar’s groomsmen joined him for an impromptu jam session with his guitar! We staged their first look at the foot of the stairs indoors, before heading over to their wedding venue, Jeffrey Mansion.

Their indoor ceremony followed, performed by an Imam and incorporating elements from each of their cultures, and their own vows to each other as well. Their extended “tea time” allowed for plenty of time for portraits after the ceremony, and we were able to take full advantage of the beautiful fall setting on the grounds of Jeffrey Mansion.

At their reception, there were a number of cultural events, including gift giving, a competition between the couple to find their rings in a bowl of rice, and of course the typical toasts and first dance. Guests enjoyed delicious Indian food for dinner along with bottomless mango lassis, and packed the dance floor for the night. Congratulations to Rajaa and Badar, I am so grateful to have been part of your most special day!

About

I aim to capture moments and expressions that tell the story of a day, and are authentic to the people involved. If you can look at a collection of images I’ve taken of a total stranger and get a feeling for who they are and what they felt, then I’ve done my job!
