Bodhi’s Baraat included a horse of sorts – a Ford Mustang!!
A curtain is held in front of the groom while the bride walks down the aisle. This tradition goes back to when Hindu marriages were arranged and the bride and groom had never laid eyes on each other before the ceremony.
This is one of my favorite photos – even though the curtain was somewhat sheer, the anticipation to fully see each other for the first time that day was amazing.
After the curtain is moved, it’s tradition to see who can throw rice on each other the fastest. The winner would then become the dominant in the relationship. I’ve seen this many time and the bride wins every timeNeeru did as well, this was just Bodhi reciprocating.
Their clothes are tied together as a symbol of the permanent union. This is where the phrase “tying the knot” comes from.
