#bergalloo part 2

Happy Monday, friends! May your caffeine be strong and your week short! 

And happy 17th of the 7th month of '17.

We celebrated Part 2 of #bergalloo in NYC, the bride's home town where the bride's mom hosted a Hindu marriage blessing for the bride and group followed by you guessed it... another party. Here are just a 'few' pictures of the exquisite event.

 We got dressed up in our Indian traditional wear for the event. A's expression kills me.

My sister in law and me with a certain photo-bomber.

We were waiting in the hotel for the limo when we got creative with our angles.

 My in laws with their grandkids.

Then at the reception hall....

Welcome to our family, Elizabeth! (the groom's mom)
Waiting for the groom to arrive.
My mama.

The groom entered on a horse to much fanfare with tassa (a drum band)   and dancing.

The fathers of the couple greet each other

The groom and the bride's stern family.

The bride enters the mandap or the marriage area.

She is braver than I am. I said a small prayer for her when she was being carried in.

My beautiful cousin... I don't know why the groom is cropped out but he is quite dashing himself.

The lovely bridesmaids

And then it was cocktail hour.... with such a variety of delicious choices that most people thought it was dinner!

 We danced and danced. Kids and all. The DJ was excellent!!

One of my favourite families from Canada came to the wedding as well.

Party of five

This kid might have gone a little crazy at the s'mores station.

Four generations of first daughters/children. 

This was after midnight- we are the best parents. candy bar and sandwich station- yes please.

I'm not sure but they might have been tired.

And then there was the after party--- not pictured.
