The wedding of Maire and Kiran was undoubtedly a great event.
The Mandarin Oriental is one of DC's most lavish hotels and turned out to be a good place to horse around. In the hottest day of the year, Kiran mounted a decorated white horse, complete with a hand-knotted mane, as his family danced in procession during the Barat.
Meanwhile, Maire performed a Puja in the bride's room as a traditional offering of love perhaps.
After the traditional ceremonies, they dressed in the more typical western garb and we headed to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial for some quick shots.
There were a lot of laughs throughout the day and everyone was eager to get a little wild in the cool sanctuary of the "Mandarin"
