Varsha + John Part 1 – The Mehendi Celebration

The day before their wedding, Varsha + John hosted the traditional Indian Mehendi pre-ceremony celebration at the Cornerstone W&W in Apalachin, NY. This was my first time attending a Mehendi celebration and I had SO much fun! They hired Henna by Nayalesh, an incredible henna artist out of Albany, and she did a stunning job on Varsha’s henna as well as all of the guests. varsha-john-wedding-mehendi-event-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-41P I NI M A G Evarsha-john-wedding-mehendi-event-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-31P I NI M A G Evarsha-john-wedding-mehendi-event-binghamton-ny-jen-pecka-photography-35P I NI M A G ESo incredible!

Cornerstone at W&W has so many pretty lights strung up that it creates such a romantic ambiance. I loved utilizing their lights while adding some of my own back lighting. The result was magical.

If you’re looking for an amazing venue, I highly recommend Cornerstone at W&W. They do an incredible job and it’s such a pretty spot for a celebration/wedding/event of any kind. Also see below for Nayalesh’s contact info if you need a henna artist for your Mehendi celebration! She is SO talented!
