I mentioned in my description of the wedding that we didn’t get pictures of the bride in her dress or the ceremony — I was in the front row and didn’t want to be disruptive (plus I just wanted to take it all in), and when they were taking the offical photos afterward we were visiting with my family that had come in. We’d only gotten to give them a hug and say hello in passing until that point. We’re looking forward to getting the official photos hopefully soon.
But we got a few of various things.
This was the temporary hand tattoos made from henna that I mentioned.
The beginning of the tumeric paste and rice ceremony the night before the wedding.
The end result.

Mittu after a shower to get all the stuff off. Isn’t she lovely? 🙂 They said in India they do the rice and tumeric thing seven days in a a row.
The front of the church.
My dress didn’t have any pink in it, but I think adjusting the lighting so it could be seen clearly affected the color.
Mother of the Groom. 🙂
The musicians did a great job. Saris everywhere provided a lot of beautiful color.
The bridesmaids. All of our pictures of the groomsmen were blurry, sadly, but they wore black suits and white shirts.
Mittu changed into this outfit for the reception made from the same fabric as the bridesmaids’ saris. These are longtime dear friends of her family – we really enjoyed getting to know them. Sweet people.

I hope to have pictures of the main event soon!!
