Traditional Lengha, Dupatta & Sherwani

This groom is wearing a traditional sherwani, the beautiful long coats worn in South Asia. I love traditional Indian wedding clothes. They are so intricate and beautiful and the colors are so rich. What a treat it was to paint this beautiful couple. Best Wishes!
