An Indian wedding

As the son of Murthy's brother was marrying Murthy couldtake me along for an Indian wedding in the closer family. We came on the first evening for the wedding reception and stayed for the next day. I could meet a lot of his family, Indras sisters and whoever else was there. Just around 1000 people at the peak time which is around noon the wedding day. That's when the string is tied around the brides waist and some other core ceremonies like the ring exchange and the "yes I will" in Christian weddings.
