An Indian Wedding: Sheetal & Jason Part 2

After the first ceremony, we tore down the beautifully modern pink mandap and made room for the second, more traditional mandap for the actual wedding ceremony. This mandap was red, white a gold - traditional Indian colors.

There was a beautiful red runner lined with red and white rose petals, as well as a custom monogram made from red and white flowers. It was so beautiful! We had closer to 400 guests in attendance for the second ceremony. The groom arrived and remained outside until the bride's family greeted him - this is known as a Baraat. A more traditional Baraat would have had him arrive at the ceremony on a horse or similar animal. Jason didn't want to do this, so his white limo was just a good!

I couldn't believe how beautiful the saris were that the women wore. Sheetal's was so gorgeous in a deep red and gold...and the jewelery...oh my! I was feeling very under dressed!
