Siri's Half Saree Function

When I was asked if I can photograph a Half Saree Function, I said yes but I had no clue what the function was and what I suppose to do. So I frantically googled stuff about it and found out that it is a function celebrated in southern part of India where a young girl wears a saree for the first time and transitions into womanhood. 

The celebration was over 2 days, Day 1 was at their house and day 2 was at an event venue in Bedofrd, MA. The parents of the girl are the sweetest people ever. They explained the ceremony and happenings in great detail so that I can capture all what was happening. And the girl is a sweetheart. She was really excited to get her pictures taken and looked absolutely gorgeous in the Indian attires. Look for yourself, hope you like the images.
