She was stunning in the white gown and the long trail, almost like an angel. She looked a little nervous, a little shy, a little excited. His presence by her side seemed to calm her down. The vow for better or for worse but the knowledge that it would be 'for the better' with him.
The quality that he liked most in her-maturity
The qualities that she liked most in him-caring and family oriented.
I had tears in my eyes as the MC announced this on behalf of the bride and the groom, and how they met as I had witnessed every step from day one. May they always remember what they first liked about each other!
J’s happily-ever-after has started. Wish her lots of love, happiness and may she also be blessed by Victoria’s secret! Amen.
M fell for her at first sight. He also dances well. Lucky bum!! The main highlight of the evening and the best one at that was when the couple danced in the centre of the circle formed by us. As the music ended, the groom lifted her in his arms and claimed her lips. I clapped and hooted to their first, I mean the first post-marital kiss :-) Ding Dong!! Are Baba Sing a song. Aaj ke Shaam, pyar ke naam !!
J looked as though she was humming a song in her heart,”My hubby strongest!!” for lifting her up so easily.
I danced like a true-blue Sai Baba devotee. Why Sai Baba? Because of my hair. My sister worships Him and with my hair all curly, I feel it is Prabhu’s calling. I may even join my sis for a Darshan at Puttaparthi, with due respect to all the religious phantoms, fanatics, Gods, God-like man or man-like Gods.
I haven’t attended many Christian weddings and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The blend between the Indian and the western culture made it more beautiful. J explained that the Konkani speaking Christians practice the tradition of tying the Mangalsutra along with the exchange of rings and vows. So, J too changed into a red saree in the later part of the evening, symbolizing the Indian bride.
The Manipuri wedding is totally different from other Indian weddings and is very beautiful. (Like a Bengali wedding is to a Bengali) I will share it with you all elaborately, each ritual, each step and their significance when I tie the knot. You just need to do a small thing and that is read my blog. Cheap publicity, so be it.
As the evening progressed and the music changed, I saw her dad cry. I joined him.
