Part II of Tina & Kartik picks up with getting ready for the ceremony, which was held at Lynch Park outside of Boston. First thing in the morning the guys headed into downtown Boston for hot lather shaves at the very awesome State Street Barbers, while Tina & her mom got ready to wrap her sari.
This necklace was just incredible!!
As were the shoes! Tina got them in India.
Tina & Kartik opted for a first look, which is AWESOME because we get moments like this:
Tina’s jewelry was phenomenal!!
The bridal party doing “Epic.” I think they rocked it, how bout you??
Then the guys got a chance to rock out by themselves!
bread n’ buttah!!
The ceremony set up was amazing!
And did I mention there was a white horse?? There was!
The “baraat” processional was incredible to witness!!
Tina’s family waits to greet Kartik and his family
Tina looked stunning. Just STUNNING!!
The whole ceremony was so beautiful and filled with incredible symbolism. For this part Tina & Kartik walk around fire seven times, first with Kartik leading and then with Tina, to symbolize the start of their journey in life and their willingness to follow one another.
Then they prepare to take the seven steps together, making a different pledge at each step. At the end, they step on a small stone in the hopes that their hurdles in life are never any bigger than that stone. Awesome!!
Husband and Wife!!
More coming soon with the second getting ready and reception at the Intercontinental Hotel!!
