This was our first three-day Indian affair and it did not disappoint. Beautiful colors, festive ceremonies, live music, and a horse.
We have to give some major kudos to Jalpa for coming prepared when she sat down to meet us. Of course we spent time getting to know her, and getting to know Khilan through her (the two had a long distance relationship and he was working out east at the time). Jalpa took the getting-to-know-us phase to a new level by schooling us on Southeast Indian wedding culture. We still have that multi-page printout, Jalpa :]
Prior to this meeting, what we knew about Indian weddings was that most spanned several days, some included live animals, and all were very festive. After meeting Jalpa...well... Mendhi, Vidhi, Pithi, Garba, Raas, Jaan, Vidai--oh, she taught us well.
