Hindu Ceremony: Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch, CO

Hindu Ceremony, Bachelor Gulch, CO: One of our very sweet and special couples this summer was Shannon and Ashok.  You might remember seeing Shannon and Ashok who were featured on our blog a few months ago for their incredible Golden Hour Engagement Session. Shannon and Ashok planned to get married at the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch.  The unique thing about Shannon and Ashok’s wedding plans was that they would have two wedding ceremonies, a Hindu wedding ceremony based on Ashok’s Indian heritage and an American wedding ceremony.  Frances Photography Associate, Julie Timmer beautifully photographed both of the couple’s wedding ceremonies.  We wanted to specifically share with you Shannon and Ashok’s Hindu ceremony as it was unique, full of tradition, and beyond beautiful with all of the bright vibrant colors. (Which we love!)

Shannon looked absolutely stunning in her red saree, accented with henna designs on her hands and arms.   Her maid of honor and bridesmaids were also dressed in bright, gorgeous colors.  Here are a few of our favorites from the day.


A Hindu Ceremony consists of several different rituals signifying the importance.  See some of our favorite photos of the ceremony, as well as the programs from Shannon and Ashok’s Hindu ceremony that describes the rituals in the ceremony, below:





Shannon and Ashok’s Hindu ceremony was one of the most beautiful and special ceremonies Frances Photography has had the privilege of capturing.   The tradition and meaning behind every ritual and the attachment to the value of marriage was so beautiful. If you enjoyed seeing Shannon and Ashok’s Hindu ceremony, you’ll love experiencing the couple’s American ceremony… stay tuned!
