my (his) best friend's (indian) wedding

although i quite enjoyed saying these words, i think i said "bedazzled" and "bedazzles" more times last weekend than the rest of my life combined.  obviously i'm talking about an indian wedding! hung's best friend, to be exact.  nope, he's not indian, but his wife is, and they had the most beautiful wedding (with lots of bedazzles)

 i was told that indian weddings are long, which i assumed in my head to mean boring.  no so, my friend!  when you're given food (GOOD food), you can smear turmeric on the groom's face (and hands and feet and back), you get to watch a group of white guys try to learn bollywood dance moves, you get to spend time with familiar faces, you get to dress up in bedazzles, and you get to see two amazing people on the happiest days of their lives... you're pretty entertained (and exhausted, but that's ok).

i'll let the photos to the talking but we're so happy we could be a part of such a fun, exciting time in their lives :)

happy friday

city hall wedding, jersey city by cheynne mojica
(flashback friday... back to OUR wedding day.  this is right after we got married at city hall in jersey city.  gosh that was a great day!!) image c/o cheyenne mojica

hey friends! it's friday! we'v e got some pretty awesome things to be thankful for this week, despite the fact that i got in a 6-car accident on one of the busiest highways in the NYC metro area (causing probably hundreds of thousands of people to miss their flight, be late for work, miss an appointment, etc. etc. etc.) and i sliced my finger cutting a bagel this morning (in my defense, the knife was dull and it was difficult to cut the bagel, sharp knives are safe knives people!!)

  1. hung gets to be the best man in his best friends wedding, a 3-day indian wedding bash that we're SO excited for....  mostly for two great people in love and getting married, but also the food.  yeah, definitely the food.
  2. we got OUR wedding photos from our photographer, cheyenne mojica , this week! i'm beside-myself-excited about them (if you couldn't tell already from my instagram feed)
  3. we got to host friends for dinner on wednesday, teaching a non-fish eater that fish can be good! (remember the claypot salmon recipe i posted a while back? if you haven't tried it yet, you need to)  being around THOSE friends always makes us feel so inspired to take a leap and follow our dreams.  so thanks, john trigonis , eightymag , and milk sugar love !
  4. i got to try filipino food for the first time kamayan style at a potluck dinner for an eightymag photoshoot! photographer greg pallante did an awesome job catching everyone mid-huge-bite, including me with a whole rambutan stuffed into one side of my cheeks like a hamster. look for his work in the next issue of eightymag !
  5. on the bright side of the car accident, i get to "test drive" a mini cooper countryman until my peanut is fixed (aka i get to try out a nice 4-door, small, baby-friendly, fits-in-our-tiny-driveway car for when we will actually need to get a new car in a few years when we start making baby phans :P)
ok now, let's get this party started! i've got two bright-and-bedazzled sarees ready to go and i'm crossing my fingers i'm there in time tonight to get my hands all hennaed up... indian weddings are the best, and we can't wait to celebrate with these two awesome people!

wedding bells are ringing

no, not ours (yet) but it certainly was a fantastic wedding!  many familiar (and fun) faces make weekends like this one so fun.  the wedding was for our friends dan and meredith, friends we met in jersey city through friends (of friends of friends… that's how it goes sometimes!)  the ceremony was held at the temple to music at roger williams park in providence, and the reception was held at the aldrich mansion.  the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining, and the day was nearly perfect for their special day!  we were so happy to be included in the celebrations and certainly enjoyed seeing a few (ok a lot) of those we don't get to see very often.  the last time we saw most of them was in barbados !
