This video covers the second half of the first day of Chinnu and Abin’s India Wedding Parties. Amelia rocks her saree at Chinnu’s ceremony before we went to Abin’s ceremony. We had SOOO much fun celebrating with the family!
When the ladies returned to Basil’s house from the beauty parlor, the family had the first of two India wedding parties, this one was for Chinnu. The priest performed a blessing ceremony with prayers and singing. Then we all took lots of pictures.

After Chinnu’s ceremony, we went to Abin’s family house for the second of the two India wedding parties. Across the street from Abin’s house was a small hotel with a big tent setup outside. After the priest conducted Abin’s ceremony with more prayers, singing and chanting, the party started. They had a very talented band, lots of dancing and adorable children singing. It was quite the celebration!

The family served another meal, but we were still full from lunch and breakfast so none of the gringos wanted to eat. The family was very concerned about us not eating. Hopefully we didn’t offend them, but after several days of gorging ourselves on delicious Southern Indian food, we just didn’t have any more room!
Basis arranged for someone to drive us back to his house where we promptly went to bed in preparation for an early morning on wedding day.
