Wedding Part 4 - Vedic Ceremony

We had two different ceremonies for our wedding, the first ceremony was the Vedic ceremony.
Welcoming the groom

Kanyadaan - parents giving away the bride

Mangalsutra (Just like the wedding band in Hindu tradition the girl adorns a magalstura - auspicious thread - more like a pretty necklace)

Seven vows (promises we make to each other)

seven vows continued

put our heads together and take every decision together henceforth

Final step Exchanging garlands :) :)
Next wedding post about the church wedding...
