Our Indian Wedding

I haven’t shared anything from our wedding yet & thought that our 3 year anniversary would be the perfect moment to take a look back. As I have mentioned before we hoped to make it our best New Years Eve yet and I can’t speak for anyone else but it far exceeded our expectations.

We were married in my hometown of Louisville, KY (now famous for J.Law who I’m obsessed with) and was a week long celebration as most Indian weddings are. The week was filled with so much love and affection from our family & friends it may makes me tear up just thinking about it.

The night before the wedding is traditionally called a Mehendi and a time for henna to be applied to the bride and family and often there are dances performed. I had stressed to my mother several times that since I was living out of state I didn’t want the responsibility of a dance with my bridesmaids and his groomsmen. Luckily, my mom is the most thoughtful person I know and I was surprised with so many lovely performances from family & friends that I will never forget – especially Trevor’s moves.

I wasn’t sure how much better it could get but then came our wedding day. We had decided not to see each other before the ceremony and when the door’s opened to the ceremony it took my breath away. I didn’t notice any of the decor or friends in the aisles, all i saw was Trevor. I felt so lucky to be able to marry my best friend and have our families there to celebrate with us. We danced the night away (literally I think we stayed hours past our close time) and I wish we could do it all over again.

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since that day. hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve and cheers to many more!

    Your wedding is so dang gorgeous. I loved hearing about it from you, and learning more from this post. Seriously, having Trevor’s name in henna on your hand is one of the most adorable things I have ever heard of.

    Well wishes onto year four, friends!!
