Nov 08, 2015 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate

Toronto, Canada, taken on April 13, 2014

When the word “ornate” was mentioned, I immediately thought of my friend’s Indian wedding that I attended last year. From head to toe, the bride and groom were covered in graceful extravagance and elegance – so beautiful!

April 13, 2014 – Indian wedding

Today was my first time attending an Indian wedding, starting in the morning with the rituals and ceremonies. The bride is my good friend – isn’t she just gorgeous! It was certainly a super interesting experience watching the many elaborate traditions and procedures, even though I understood nothing as the event was held in…Hindi? Punjabi? Sanskrit? Some of the audience members whom I asked didn’t even understand. What an honour to be part of the special ceremonies 🙂
