It is usually custom in the Indian customs and traditions that when a young girl becomes a teenager that she has what is called a “Half Sari Party”, the half-sari is a transition from the pavadai to the sari, from girlhood to womanhood. It prepared a young girl for the more cumbersome 6-9 yards of fabric that is used to make sari’s.
While Sriya is only 10 she seems so much wiser beyond her years and talk about the most polite and pleasant girl, that she is! An RP first we had the opportunity to photograph her party as well as meet a few old faces as well as new!
Dr. Divakaruni and his wife who are the parents of our past Bride and Groom, Haritha and Chris who were married 2 years ago. We also met the owner of Tandoori Nights who has two locations one in MD and one in VA. He and his wife operate and manage the restaurant together and the food and service is out of this world! It has been a very long time since we have had Indian food this superb! I think we have found our new favorite place to eat!
Congratulations Sriya! You were so beautiful and a joy to photograph! We look forward to watching you grow~!
