I have been anticipating this wedding for years now! Shannon and Seema are special to me and I am honored that they chose me to be their wedding photographer. I flew into Los Angeles a few hours before the wedding festivities began. I was greeted by a house full of friends, family and a lot of laughter. It was going to be an exciting day. Beautiful Indian culture, stunning brides & style for miles! Couldn’t ask for more. I have photographed Indian weddings before and I have photographed gay and lesbian weddings before, but never have I ever shot an Indian lesbian wedding. WOW. My heart! There was so much love that consumed the SmogShoppe that evening. Friends and family came pouring in with smiles, hugs and tears… these two are clearly loved and in love. I am writing this blog a month after the wedding and I am proud to say that so much progress has been made in our country with the Supreme Court striking down DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and Prop 8 in California! Love wins. ALWAYS. Congrats Shannon & Seema. Love you guys! UPDATE: For every LGBT wedding I book in 2014 I have decided to donate a portion to the Trevor Project. READ MORE HERE! PROMOTE LOVE and get involved in something bigger than yourself.

    Beautiful. Simply beautiful. There cannot be a better ambassador to the fight for marriage equality than this album. Anyone who would deny these two lovely ladies such apparent happiness just does not have a heart. All the best to both of you for a lifetime of joy, fulfillment and togetherness. Love from Mumbai.

    Only one suggestion: i think it should be titled Beautiful Love Marriage, not Indian Lesbian wedding. I say this only because it should be the love that draws comment. What your orientation is that led you to this beautiful moment should be irrelevant. Also it reads as an oddity and shouldn’t be so. Thanks for sharing your special moments. Incredibly moving to see so much honest love.

Everything that happened in this wedding has been exactly what I have dreamed to happen in my wedding. Especially, the part where I marry a woman out of my culture. After seeing this I can say that my dream one day will surely come true. Thank you Seema and Shannon for keeping mine and probably millions of other girls dreams alive, especially, those who wish to marry a woman out of their culture. I wish both of you all the happiness and luck in this new journey of yours. 🙂

    It is amazing to see this. I hope the world slowly broadens its vision and accept such weddings with arms wide open. Hats off to the Indian parents of Seema. In india parents still freak out at the idea of mere inter-religion marriage while Seema’s parents accepter her sexuality and allowed her to choose a soulmate. This is amazing and beautiful. God bless the couple!

    Congratulations to the lovely brides! All best wishes for laughs and adventures throughout life. I am an American Desi whose daughter came out as Bi when she was in high school. No matter the gender of who she marries, I hope to throw my daughter just as lovely a wedding as this.

    This is beautiful. I’ve wanted a big, traditional Indian wedding since I was a little girl, and once I realized my sexuality, letting that wedding dream go was one of the saddest things. Your wedding is proof that it doesn’t have to be that way. What an amazing hybrid of cultures, traditions and style to celebrate your special day! I’m so impressed; both at how you incorporated an american and indian wedding into one, and that you had the balls to do it! I hope you two have a long, happy life together! xoxo

    This is beautiful beyond words. I am crying because it feels like i just saw a slideshow of my most heart wrenching dream come true! Shannon & Seema… Congrats to you both from the bottom of my soul! I am a complete stranger that is in awe of the love you have for one another and the commitment you’ve decided to make to each other. You are both beautiful, brave and blessed. I wish you both a lifetime of joy! I feel so goddamn fortunate and grateful to have stumbled upon this page today. Steph, you are an amazing photographer! You can feeel the love emanating from each shot.
    Is there any way to get in touch with the brides? I’m an Indian lesbian living in a country where homosexuality is criminalized. I came out recently to my parents only to be told that I “must” get married to a boy… so i almost gave up on my own happiness. After seeing this, I realize just how much it’s worth. I’m working on a novel actually and I’m collecting stories of Indian lesbians like myself because i think it has the power to dramatically impact the live of an Indian girl somewhere in the world that is too afraid to follow her heart. I would love to hear Shannon and Seema’s story.
    you can email me at: [email protected]
    Again, thank you for this. Thank you!

But, as an Indian woman this made my heart so so happy. I loved how they carried out all the little traditions. I loved that they fed each other a cupcake (for shannon) and a laddoo (for seema). They thought of it all…Kudos and God bless you both. And, yeah to to all supportive family members on both sides who truly reveled in the celebration.

    This made me cry, I’m a lesbian too and i grew up in a hindu family so this is the norm and i always dreamed of a hindu wedding for my partner and I but pundits in New York would never do this for homosexual couples. so seeing this possible is a blessing for me and hope that one day i can share this ceremony of intimacy and trust with my loved one. although i would not wear a sari but a doti instead. saris are not my thing. but this is amazing and congrats for the marriage.

    @Rishabh: Hinduism does not say anything against homosexuality, and any homophobia that exists in Indian society is cultural and relatively new (slowly inculcated over 200 years). A lot of Hindu royals practiced it openly in the past, and Hinduism has a lot of LGBT themes in its mythology.

    Seeing these pictures makes me so happy! Steph Grant you are a very talented photographer and you have captured the love and happiness better than anything I’ve ever seen! I may get your for my wedding! (Let me find a man first.) The brides are incredibly stunning, and Seema especially seems to have such incredibly vibrant energy – what a doll!

    Were the guests crying? It looked like that in a couple pictures.

    Congratulations to the new couple and may they have a long, prosperous, healthy and happy life together. This wedding gives me hope for our society.

    These Indian weddings are really something to savor for a lifetime. An Indian marriage ceremony is elaborate, full of rituals and customary celebrations that it is a sight to behold. Actually it looks like the couples are representing Gods and Goddesses in all their glory and a religious function is underway.

    Really the richness of Indian culture is what enamored west so passionately. Sadly, the spirituality and grandeur of such a rich legacy seems to be lost in the tragic stories emanating from that country.

    Beautiful photos!

    Your happiness gives me hope because even though I’m indian and gay, I can still have a wonderful wedding with so many people that love me for who I am. You ladies are a beautiful couple that have inspired me to break some barriers and love whoever I want. I wish you guys all the happiness in the world. I hope you inspire more gay men and women to express their love and happiness as you did yours.

    Best wishes
    Your well wisher, Parm

    I am so happy to see two women getting married with so much love from all family and friends 🙂 Its good to see that the world is changing. When two people feel love for each other they have the right the get married irrespective of genders 🙂 So happy for you both. You both look smashing as brides and the vermilion ceremony brought tears to my eyes. God bless you both with lots and lots of happiness and togetherness for a lifetime.

And looking at the images, I assume it was with consent from both the families. The world is definitely turning into a beautiful place.

    Hi Steph,

    I just happened upon your blog and fell in love with this wedding and these two women and their community from the photos. I’m engaged to a really wonderful man and am not gay, but the beauty of this wedding made me wish I could have an Indian lesbian wedding of my own. Everyone looks so joyous and authentic! Thanks for putting this on the internet for me to stumble upon! xoxo many happy wishes to the gorgeous couple!

    Hi Steph,
    I am an Indian Hindu and i know Hindu marriages can look beautiful, but there are still many that gloss over many shortcomings of our system, one of them being the denial of sexual liberty. But these set of pictures, and the couple so evidently in love, made my heart skip a beat. Wonderful images.

    I have never seen the problem with gay marriage. ……’s their love why does it have anything to do with anyone else? Me being a staight woman and supporting gay marriage has lost me so many friends but if they can’t support undeniable love then I would rather not have them as friends…………these wedding photos are amazingly beautiful and shows the love they have for each other and I wish them all the best love and happiness

Just goes to show how good of a photographer she is. In a world where it is still taboo to have Indians be gay or lesbian, this is a breath of fresh when it comes to this couple. I don’t know them personally but I wish them many years of happiness. You guys are an example of what true happiness and true love mean.

      Not really. Alternative relationships were always accepted earlier in India. Only after the invasions, Victorian and Mughal, their morality crept in. Times are changing, and there are lots of lesbians who are quite vocal about their status in India. Hope it gets the official nod soon.
