Wow, I really liked the bride's outfit minus the gigantic pierced nose hoop. Haven't seen something this nice since Race Bannon got married to Estella Velasquez on Johnny Quest.

Congrats! I think it would have been nice to see this. I've seen pictures of co-workers at their own weddings. They are very colorful.

Unfortunately, the only thing I have ever seen in person that was Hindu was an informal wake. An Indian woman who worked where I used to work had to deal with the death of her brother in a car accident in Columbia, MO. They had readings and reflections for him near the Plaza. I think they read some poem that comes from ancient Sanskrit text.

Then his sister and his close friends released his ashes in the Missouri River -- since going back to India to would have been to expensive, plus he had made Missouri his home.
