From the bride, on the wedding style:
"My parents wanted to throw us a big Indian wedding party. Since it was the first wedding in my family, my wish was to let my parents do it their way, their style because aside from our 40 or so guests, rest of the wedding party were their acquaintances. Indians love big parties - it's a come one, come all approach. For three generations now, my family has lived in Jaipur. Naturally, there were many family members and friends that were invited. The guest list was for about a 1000 people split over two days. All I ever wanted, to be honest, was to get married at home; in my childhood home, where I grew up and had all my big milestones and rites of passage. To me, that was enough."
On a special moment during the ceremony:
"I remember the time when my father walked me down the aisle, it was so special. And then, it got funny because I looked at Nick standing on the other side and he said WOW! Instead of hello or hey, he said WOW! It's amazing because Kristin has captured that precise moment and it will always remain so special to me. You got to marry a man that make you laugh!"
What she enjoyed most:
"At the risk of sounding cliché, I enjoyed the feeling of marrying Nick the most. Everyday, that thought excited me more than anything else."
