Earlier this summer, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph my friend Sharon's bridal shower and henna party. Sharon and her then-fiance, Ryan, are an incredibly sweet, accomplished couple. As of the henna party, they had recently returned from a year in Israel, where Ryan completed his M.D. and Sharon clerked for the Israeli Supreme Court.
Sharon comes from a big, loving Persian Jewish family, and her event was a mix of American and Persian traditions to celebrate brides-to-be. There was lots of food (of course) as well as a classic tea party theme and a henna artist. After a delicious dinner served on the beautiful patio of Sharon's parents' house, there was traditional Persian dancing and a henna ceremony.
It was a beautiful event, full of laughter and love and dancing and food. I wish Sharon and Ryan (who got married in the time it took me to post these photos) all the best in their life together.
This conversation was about high heels, I swear...
