Mehndi night kicked off this wedding weekend full of friends and family celebrating the marriage of Jennifer and Basit! The first night is generally the most “festive” with lots of dancing, and Jennifer & Basit’s family and friends did not disappoint! This Pakistani/Bengali wedding at Seasons Event Center in Atlanta rocked all night long. Here are a few hundred of my favorite photographs from the thousands I shot that night of the fun, enjoy!
