Part 4: Ceremony, III

Part two, part three

So once M's view was obstructed, the bride's procession started. She had like 20 flower girls. Like any relative under 13 got to be a flower girl. I have no pictures, sorry, but they were really sweet!

S's sister entered. I loved her blue sari.

The finally S came in. Her gown was amazing. It must have weighed 100 lbs, maybe 50, but it looked really heavy. No bouquet, no escort, she just came down and climbed right up on the stage (after having her shoes removed).
Right before the big reveal.
M & S exchanged wreaths.

Got caught up in a love knot. This was a golden rope that was lassoed around them both. At this point they still haven't touched each other.

Next up: Coconuts!

I love the final photo of the couple. With all the pomp, the rituals and the gorgeous clothes, they are still just two young people in love. I am in NYC now.
