The Details: Wedding Ceremony

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas weekend and got some good boxing day deals! It’s been a weekend packed with family events and lots of food. Can’t complain!

I’ve been working on putting together pictures from the wedding ceremony and reception–yay!! Today is the second installment of “The Details”. First was the mendhi, today is the ceremony.

In a nutshell, the ceremony was simple and beautiful, with emotional moments.

J wore the blue sherwani he always wanted (well…wanted since he decided he would wear a sherwani), and I coordinated in my red lengha with blue stones and blue jewelry. I kept the jewelry to a minimum: earrings, tikka, necklace, and very traditional chuda (wedding bangles). Although I always wanted a naath, I couldn’t find one that matched my jewelry and I didn’t really have time to look! I also opted for simple, traditional chuda rather than the blinged out chuda I see everywhere. I grew up admiring my mom’s traditional chuda and always imagined I would wear similar ones. My lengha was amazingly comfortable and I felt awesome in it.

Make-up wise, I also kept it on the simpler side, but incorporated a little drama with awesome falsies, slightly smokey eye with dark blue shadow, and blue eyeliner. I looked and felt like me, only better.

Below are some pictures taken by the awesome Kumari team. Enjoy!

The next picture is in the above collage, but I wanted to post the full size pic–it’s one of my favourites!!
