Haywood Hall that Sunday afternoon.
Asia Morris and Friends provided the music. I think they are friends of the bride and are not a professionally performing group. They were good too!
The guests were arriving and taking their seats this gorgeous Sunday afternoon.
Whole Foods was the florist.
Here comes the bride!
After warm words of welcome, I explained the significance of the Mangalsutra, a special necklace in Hindu wedding tradition, similar to rings in the American tradition, and then it was passed from guest to guest for them to infuse it with their blessings for the couple during the ceremony. Following that we had a prayer and remembrance of those not with us.
(I am going to take this opportunity here to point something out. Please notice the photographer who was behind the couple--I stepped out of the way for the kiss. I am pretty sure he was not one of the professional photographers being paid to take photos. When the professional photographers ask me if I have any restrictions on photographs--the really professional ones do ask--I tell them I have no restrictions except to please not get behind me during the ceremony and distract the guests from the ceremony. I was not aware of this young man during the ceremony or I would have turned around and asked him to relocate out from behind us! I have had to severely crop a lot of these photos to remove him from the pictures!)
Such a good-looking couple!Bridget McEnaney and her assistant Colleen.
