Jodhpur isn’t scorching hot yet. Fortunately, Vidhi and Abhay decided to get married in the spring season and Jodhpur was lovely. Blue skies and just starting to get hot. Vidhi got in touch with me when I had announced my annual wedding giveaway in 2010. We signed the contract earlier this year and the dates were set in March.

It was a lovely wedding with close-knit family and friends at the Sangeet and a larger crowd at the wedding venue. The couple had come all the way from Canada to get married the traditional Indian way and it was touching to find that the groom had a family song – “Julie Julie!” Lovely! And the bevy of beauties! The gorgeous ladies! Wishing the couple all the very best for a very happy married life.
