women on Vinalhaven

so much fun, and we will have to be doing it again sometime this fall!
They picked fun things, and really individual.
I did hear though that some of them went swimming in the quarry shortly afterwards though! (completely disregarding the fact that you should, a) leave the henna on for 4-6 hours, and b) that you should avoid water on it for at least that long if not much longer!)
I will just have to go back and henna them all again this fall!

girls afternoon

Very fun gathering of women! They all had their nails done and then gathered to get henna. The woman in the middle is the bride.

This one was my favorite.....

A very different pre wedding event than the one in Greenwich... very low key, with margaritas and great munchies!

punjabi wedding

I was lucky enough to do henna at a pre-wedding event in Greenwich for about 500 guests. It was beautiful with so many incredible sarees, fabulous music and dance performances. I hennaed with Carrie and Kayan for 3 1/2 hours.

(these were taken before the event started, as they were setting up. The bride is the one in the gorgeous red saree)

always popular

This has been popular lately. I was inspired by the work of Carrie, as I will be working with her at a large indian wedding event. Her designs are beautiful.

This I did on a friend, and embellished it with glitter paste. She loved it!

birthday party

These girls had so much fun picking out their henna designs for Ana's sleep-over birthday party!
