An amazing party the night BEFORE the wedding.
Gorgeous venue with snake charmers, dancers, and people painted in gold body paint.
Very cool way to kick off the weekend!
My love and I before the event
Aren't we the cutest? =)
Me getting my first real henna tattoo!
I can't stop looking at it, so freakin cool
This is what it looked like when she was done!
It eventually flakes off when it dries and looks like the below photo...
A few days later and it still looks like this.
The woman did it so quickly and I really admire how intricate and delicate it is.
My boyfriend dancing with the groom and a friend
Look at the sea of people behind them whoa
The next day - an Indian-type parade outside the hotel
See the blonde head right there? That's me attempting to Indian dance.
The groom rode in on this beautiful white horse.
It was supposed to be an elephant, but the elephant guy in Houston was out of town
The groom and a pretty amazing headpiece.
Forgive me for not knowing all the real terms ha!
After all the dancing and music, came the actual ceremony
The bride and groom sat up there in a glass structure surrounded by roses and candles
I still can't get over how lavish the clothing is, obsessed!
Party time! (Again...)
Night two - the reception. Our cocktails are the special "bride and groom martinis"
The dry ice made them bubble and smoke...amazing!
My bindi! One of the party guests was nice enough to give me one of hers
It's essentially a jeweled sticker, but looks so pretty
The bride and groom partying into the reception hall
Take me back, PLEASE. Or at least I hope to meet some new Indian friends so I can be invited to their wedding =)
