Boogie and I were lucky enough to be in the ceremonies with Shwetha, both of us in the morning Hindu ceremony and me in the evening Jewish ceremony. What a great cultural learning experience for her, and me as well. So our weekend started off with a Henna party for everyone interested in either family and the wedding parties. Boogie was so excited and so was I, I love henna. Of course now that I look for them I see that the henna pictures have yet to be uploaded oops. Anyway the artist was fantastic, and fast, super fast and the patterns looked amazing. Boogie was a bit heart broken because you have to wait for the henna to dry before you touch it or else it will smear. This is a hard task for anyone but especially a 4 year old, and despite her best efforts hers smeared a bit. It wasn't horrible, but it took a while to calm her down and promise her it would be okay. So with our Henna done, we headed back to the house to swap Boogie for Jon and head out to the Rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal was quick and straight to the point and then it was time for the real fun to begin.
The next morning the real fun began.....at the crack of dawn. Boogie and I were dressed with hair done and in the car heading back downtown by 7:30am. PHEW!
We looked pretty good in our gorgeous outfits, hand made in India.
Boogie defiantly knew that she looked good. :D
Then it was time for the ceremony...the girls did great and before you knew it, it was all over...
My other two favorite people did make it and the little one looked cute if I do say so myself....
After a good lunch it was time to get my hair and make up done really quickly while Jon got the girls ready to go for a sleepover, and then run home and pick him up and head back down for the evening Jewish ceremony. *Phew* I was really really tired by the end of this weekend, but it was so worth it.
The second ceremony was gorgeous too, but with the lighting being so low and Jon sitting really near the back there were only two photos...this one, and
This one, oh and notice I am the only one that could not keep my pashmina on my shoulders, stupid linebacker shoulders. LOL!!
Definitely a wedding to remember. We left for SeaWorld and Disney two days after the wedding, which might explain Boogie's melt down on the second day of Disney. The rest of that story is coming soon. Promise!!
