Today's featured wedding is EXTRA special because it is our first international wedding!  This is very exciting, because as our readership grows around the globe, we hope to have more weddings for you in the future! I can barely keep all the countries in this one straight - groom from Scotland, photographer from South Africa, and wedding in India!

Donald John and Kripa were married in a colorful, festitive three day affair on June 20, 2009 in Manali, Himachal Paradesh, India; otherwise known as the foothills of the Himalayas! Wil Punt, of Peartree Photography , along with friends & family from around the globe flew in to celebrate the occasion.

The three day party started with the Mehndi...

What I love about weddings in India is that you can get details that are unimaginable in the US. Have you ever seen so many bright marigolds?

Wil Punt is an accailmed South African photographer, who also works with National Geographic.  A-mazing.   Since this wedding took place in India, I don't have many details of the vendors.  However, here is one detail I did manage to pick up - Kripa's bridal lenga weighed over 7kgs (approx 15 pounds!)

Stay tuned tomorrow for the continuation of this gorgeous affair!
