Part II of Sejal’s marriage to Kunch begins with preparations of Kunch’s Baraat , which took place outside in front of the Hilton in Short Pump.  The Baraat is the groom’s procession to the ceremony.  It is customary that he arrives to the ceremony on a mare.  Both the groom and the horse are adorned with flowers and finery, and the groom generally carries either a sword or a dagger.  He’s accompanied by his family and a band who dance all around him.   Usually, the bride secretly watches the festivities, and in this event, Sejal looked on from a window inside the hotel.

Once the procession arrives to the ceremony site, they are met by the bride’s waiting family.  Equivalent family members on each side greet each other, normally beginning with the fathers, then mothers, followed by siblings, then extended family.  This ceremony is called the Milni, which symbolizes the unification of the two clans.

Le Reve Creation’s custom built plexi-glass mandap adorned with hanging garlands was a vision of modern elegance!

A four hour interlude, then Sejal began getting ready for the 650 person reception.

Congratulations Sejal and Kunch on your marriage!!!  We wish you the best in your lives together!!!
