Magic Unfolds

Here we go guys. As promised, here is a glimpse of my big day!

 All dressed up. I couldn't recognize myself.

After the garlanding ceremony. Man, those garlands are super heavy :|

Cal walks his bride to the swing/oonjal. Oonjal is an Iyer custom where the bride and groom sit on a swing and women walk around warding them from all evil.

And he promised to hold my hand for life :) 

The Iyer bride costume. Another case of non-identification :D

His usual self, Cal had to crack jokes just before the moment.

The moment. Beautifully captured.

Mangalya thantunanena mama jeevana hethunaa
Kante badhnaami subhage tvam jeeva saradah satham

Burn, evil doers. Burn in hell.

Yeah, I'm a drama queen too.

Toe Rings. God bless you, dear husband :)

The custom where you go see a star called Arundati. All we could see was a mobile signal tower. And a crow.

The wedding venue. Cal and I supervised the decoration.

After the grihapravesh into his house, we had to come back to the venue for the reception. We were just relieved here that most of the day is over.

My reception look. Can kinda recognize myself here.

It sure was a pose. But the feelings were genuine. 


The great Spiff master and Raj cheta.

My parents and my sister.

My new family. 

The reception stage. Yes, we did have live streaming too :P
