Los Angeles Indian wedding at Vibiana
Photographers Callaway Gable photographed a beautiful indian wedding in the heart of Los Angeles below are a few words from them speaking about the wedding day.
For this wedding our clients were married outside at dusk and then moved inside for dinner and dancing. They are both Sri Lankan which means the wedding ceremony is very different than an Indian South Asian wedding. The ceremony is called a Poruwa ceremony. The bride and and groom stand on an ornate wooden platform. There are many customs, most noticeably the moment when their pinkie fingers are tied together. Water is poured over their fingers and onto the ground. The idea is that the water and ground are witnesses to their union. Other great moments are when a group of teenage girls sing ‘Jayamangala Gatha,’ and when the priest breaks a coconut in half, blessing their union.
