Indian Weddings

June is the season of weddings. This year I am fortunate enough to attend four Indian weddings. Even though they are all Indian weddings, each of them is uniquely different from the other. Last weekend we attended a one of our good friend's daughter's South Indian wedding. As I mentioned in my earlier posts, Indian weddings are unique to the region that the bride or groom's parents are from.  Indian weddings are always magical, rich in the traditions, customs, silk sarees and jewelry that go along with it. Guests at the wedding are treated to a feast of mouth-watering Indian appetizers, curries, and desserts.

Flower studded elephants are welcoming the guests.
