Last month I had the honor of photographing the 50th wedding anniversary of Ranjan & Subodh. In this day and age its an accomplishment to make it to your 50th birthday, so to survive 50 years living side by side your spouse is definitely a means for a celebration. Obviously every marriage experiences its fair share of ups and downs, but its a shame that so many people in our society view them as disposable. A successful marriage requires a great deal of hard-work, sacrifice, understanding, friendship, support, and a conscious decision to love one another regardless of the circumstances. The second I met Ranjan & Subodh it was instantly evident why these two have maintained such a successful marriage. They both exuded genuine warmth and kindness and you could feel the outpouring of positive energy in their presence.
It was a wonderful celebration full of family, friends, drinks, laughter, and my favorite....traditional Indian dancing. This group sure could dance! People were glued to the dance floor the second the music started. Subodh was also kind enough to show me some of her moves, so watch out ladies....I'm ready to hit the Indian club scene.
I also wanted to thank my good friend Sarah Powers
for coordinating this awesome event. She took care of all the details and made sure everything went off without a hitch. If you ever need an event planner or a wedding coordinator I'd highly recommend her.
Congrats to Ranjan & Subodh on such a momentous occasion. Hopefully I can match this accomplishment one day, although I guess I need to find a soul mate first. At this rate I'll be pushing 80 years old if I make it to a 50th Anniversary! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.
