Indian lesbian wedding: Seema & Shannon, step ahead for freedom
If you’re an Indian, second word along with the first one, somewhat raises morality issues. And this I can say without any doubt whatsoever. But as we hear our mom-pop say, the world is changing a lot, but changing to the extent that a girl is compelled to marry another girl?? What kind of love is this? (as they would say).
Respite to those Californian American-Indians who decipher the meaning of “Freedom” in completely new dimension (as contrary to webster’s definition).
On Sunday, Justice Anthony Kennedy rejected a last-ditch appeal in California and allowed same-sex marriages. That’s a breather for same gender couples who have been fighting since the regime of Bill Clinton (Facts).
While few couples were successfully able to register their licenses, others had to wait for one more day to vow to each other.
Getting up close and personal was a photographer Steph Grant who got a chance to click Indian Lesbian Wedding of Seema & Shannon. It must have been a treat for him to click two varied yet enriching cultures. Here’s what he had to say:
“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! “.
