    I've heard Indian weddings are totally insane. Food comes in fucking SHIFTS, bro. :rofl:

    Look forward to the pics...

    Everyone I've seen is so colorful, fun, and full of crazy fun events. I've always looked at an Indian wedding and a destination wedding as two things I wanted to do since I started. Destination is done... and i think thats what led to booking a few of the weddings I have so far next year. I think the Indian wedding will just add to that. :big grin:

    Good friends of mine had an all-day wedding. Indian service in the morning complete with welcoming ceremony. Food. Changed clothes and then had a Christian ceremony with tux and wedding gown. Then dinner and dancing till 2am. They rented the Troy (Michigan) Hilton conference room all day.

    Oh man, I had fun for my first Indian wedding. It was actually an Indian/Filipino wedding, so you can imagine the food. :bowdown: The ceremony was pretty long too, one Indian, and then the Catholic one next. :eek4: Never did weddings after that. :o

    ONe of my best friends is Sri Lankan (Tamil) and his family's weddings are insanity. Those people party like no other I have ever seen.

    That's the biggest thing I've always noticed with the Indian weddings, and that's exactly what I'm looking forward to. :)

    Good luck! is the best advice I can offer. Not only will you be swarmed by the family of the bride and groom to take pictures of them with their family, everyone will arrive an hour late minimum to every function.

    btw, i would seriously consider a second shooter. I'm in Austin, so if you do consider it, let me know. I've shot few Indian weddings myself provided they were in my family, I can help you out.

    I have a good friend from Austin coming to shoot it with me (www.dcmphotography.com), and might have another friend who's trying to get into weddings come help out and be an assistant to keep up with the family that wants those pics.

    Being middle eastern and married to an Asian woman, I know all about people being late to everything. I think it's in the culture in that region, or maybe in their DNA. Who knows!!!

    It's my first wedding of the year next year, so it'll set the tone for the rest of the year. Win/Win situation for me.
