As you may already know, I had a traditional Indian Hindu wedding. It was a weeklong affair that included all the traditional ceremonies and parties. I had been doing the majority of wedding planning so I was super stressed out prior to the wedding (not to mention I was still working until the week before the big day), but in the end it was all worth it and everything went as smooth as silk! Of course, there were a few minor hiccups, but overall I couldn't have asked for a better day (or shall I say week).
Here are a couple snaps from the wedding:
This pic is from my videographer Robles Video. The videographer put this as the company's profile picture on Facebook and it was cute because my mom saw it and called me right away to tell me. It feels like such an honor to be the face of their company on FB! It the only close up I have right now where you can see my makeup. I have not yet received all of the photographer's photos, so I only have pics taken by family and friends.
You may have also noticed how heavy and dramatic the makeup is, especially the eye makeup. When you look at the whole outfit and jewelry together, Indian brides need heavy makeup in order to make the features stand out. The pic below shows some of my outfit:
I may post more pics later when I get them from my photographer and my family members. Right now all the family member's photos are with my parents, so I will get them when I see them in a few days. Until then, at least you get a glimpse of my bridal look.
The hubby and I went to Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora (all are islands in French Polynesia) for our honeymoon, and it was AMAZING!!! I will post some island pics soon, but I just have to tell you that if you ever get an opportunity to go to these islands, GO!!! These islands are absolutely GORGEOUS and the beautiful nature is preserved so I think it is an amazing place to visit with your significant other and highly recommend it! =)
