On March 4th, 2012 to the boy who turns my knees to jello.

In South India, an engagement is a ceremony that involves the families exchanging gifts and agreeing to have the two kids in love, married soon. Its all about the families coming together. Once all the ceremonial agreeing is done, we exchange rings !

I am still soaking it all in. It was every thing I wished for and more. I now have a full year to plan my wedding. And I'm booking you to help me with it all the way !

I did my own makeup. It was a day time ceremony so I kept it simple with a underlying peach/pink-orange/gold theme. Can you spot the products ?

My sister did this for us. Its a part of our love story.

The girl puts the ring on the boy first. He surprised me and the rest of the family by going down on one knee. I was just too excited to react.

And, the ring is worn on the right hand.

Lots of love,
Indian Girl

I'm in love with your earrings. Where did you get them from? I have a part of my family living in Hyderabad and Chennai... I so want to ask them to get the earrings for me if I know the store.
