Engagement: 

I arrived just in time on this day. I quickly changed into this amazing yellow lehenga. 

The used an old gold blouse that was actually a saree blouse. This full sleeve blouse went perfect with my yellow lehenga. 

I accessorized this look with a maang tikka I ordered on amazon.ca and wore my red Chloe sandals.

Main day:

We started the day with the Garland ceremony where the bride makes the garland for her husband herself using jasmine buds. 

For this I wore a traditional green wrap around skirt called sarong, with a simple yellow velvet top. 

I also wore a pink chain.

Later that day was the main wedding ceremony which was so mesmerizing. It has everyone in tears. 

For this I wore a Lovely yellow shawl that is traditionally called a Phanek and a green sarong (wrap). For blouse I used a simple black crop top.

I completed this look with jumkis(earnings) and earring extensions. 

The phanek was pinned together with a lovely broach.

For footwear I wore my velvet grey mules designed by Artbyat.

I loved this experience and was so blessed to be a part of these weddings.
