Devin & Nisha
Indian wedding engagement party
Oasis Conference Center
Devin & Nisha had their formal Indian
engagement ceremony and party at the Oaisis Golf Club
and Conference Center. In Indian tradition, this
is the first ceremony to take place between the bride
and groom, marking the beginning of their wedding
concord. The two families welcome each other and
strengthen their bond. During the engagement ceremony
and ring ceremony, the engagement is made formal and the
couple exchanges rings. Then family members present
gifts to the bride and groom. The ceremony is concluded
with the blessings of the elders.
Of course all of this is followed by a big celebration
with food, drink, and dancing.
Days prior to the engagement party we did their formal
engagement portraits at Washington Park in Cincinnati.
The day of the engagement party was incredibly windy and
limited us to outdoor areas that were sheltered from the
wind. It all worked out and we were able to get some
beautiful photographs of Devin, Nisha and their
