Wedding of Jay & Karishma 

Friday night Karishma and Jay were married. Jay is the nephew of a dear family friend of ours from the states and we were all very excited to attend their wedding. It was Trent and Patrick’s first Indian wedding and my third.

In India, getting married takes quite a while. The ceremony takes about three hours. We arrived at the Mayfair Hall, at around 7pm. It was crowded with people and I immediately looked around to see if I could find my friends from the states. With no luck, Trent, Patrick and I sat down and watched the ceremony. It was quite beautiful with the singing, and chanting. About an hour later we connected with my friends and caught up on life in general. Since they (US friends) were guest of honor they had to mingle so we split up for a little while. We continued to watch Jay and Karishma and all the guests wearing lovely saris. Trent and Patrick stuck out in the crowd being two of four white people at this function. At one point the groom looked up and saw Trent and had this blank stare in face as if he was thinking, "Who the hell invited you, I don't know you." It was hilarious, a moment to remember. The following day a reception was held at the Taj President Hotel. Everything was very tasteful at this two day event and we had a great time.
