Venus and Adam are, thanks to my husband, my niece and nephew. I love them. They got married on March 16th in Long Beach, and thankfully, we were able to be there for all of the festivites. One of my favorite events was the henna party, which was one part ceremony, three parts party. Here are some of my favorite images from the evening.

This was the part Adam was involved in, where both of them got henna dots on their hands and feet. 

Once Adam’s henna was dry enough for him to walk, he was outta there. After that it was all girls until the guys crashed the dance party later in the evening.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. 

What do you do when the henna is drying? Meditate.

Here are the bride and groom on their wedding day. Both stunning.

And here's' what the henna looked like on the bride's hands and arms three days after it was applied.
