So technically in India, Alicia and Mo are married…maybe not legally in CT (that happens later today), but let’s be dreamy romantics for a bit
I had a lovely evening last night with their family and friends as Mo’s uncle (a beautifully eloquent priest from India) united them in the Hindu religion
I love cultural celebrations – it always fascinates me to hear the symbolism and what goes into the ceremonies and rituals
I love this next picture of Alicia holding hands with her mom and her new hubby! So sweet!
Just as in the Greek wedding ceremony, the couple is asked to take their first steps together after becoming a married couple. Each of the seven steps has symbolism
And the couple is married with the exchange of the garland
I especially love how everyone in the families plays a roll in blessing and welcoming the couple
Thank you to all family members for welcoming me! I felt like part of the family (and had it not been for the gear I was carrying, I would have totally danced!)!!

I love Indian weddings because there’s always so much color! A photographer’s dream come true to photograph!!
But I especially love it when couples can just act like themselves! Great smiles!!
Thank you to Haveli’s India Restaurant in Middletown for hosting the ceremony and the YUM YUM YUMMY food!!
Stay tuned for my next post…today’s ceremony will be celebrating Alicia’s Irish side of the family and the reception will symbolize the couple as one and celebrate their lives together in New England!!
