It’s Wedding Day! Chinnu & Abin’s Marriage and Reception Party – India Part 10 (Episode 103)

The big day has arrived! Join us as we share in Chinnu and Abin’s very special day in Adimali India!

The Wedding (aka Marriage)

You may have noticed that they aren’t facing the congregation, like we see in western weddings. That’s because they’re Orthodox Catholic. Everyone faces the altar during mass and weddings. They also refer to the ceremony as a “marriage” instead of a “wedding.”

Our Marriage Blessing

If you watched Episode 101, we shared the story of how we got our marriage blessed by Chinnu and Abin’s priest. When we told them we went to the courthouse to get married and didn’t have a wedding ceremony, they were shocked and appalled. Abin picked up the phone and called Basil who then called their priest to arrange the marriage blessing.

It all happened in just a few minutes and they didn’t give us an option to say no so we decided to embrace it and accept their kind gesture. After the wedding ceremony, we ventured over to the priest’s office where he performed the blessing and we exchanged the rings that Chinnu helped us select back in Trivandrum. The ceremony was short and slightly humorous, which was perfect for us.

Family, Friends, Food & Fun in Adimali India: Chinnu & Abin’s Pre-Wedding Festivities – India Part 8 (Episode 101)

After a long journey from Cuenca Ecuador to Adimali India via Quito, Miami, Amsterdam, Mumbai and Trivandrum, we arrived in the mountain jungles of central Kerala in Southern India for Chinnu and Abin’s wedding.

This video is Part 1 and covers the morning and afternoon of the first day of the 2-day wedding. Normally, the wedding would last 3 days, but because Chinnu’s village of Adimalathura is so far from Adimali, the family compressed the timeline to 2 days.

We got a tour of Basil’s bakery “Spoon” in Adimali on our way to Abin’s house for snacks and lunch with the family. Then Amelia went to the beauty parlor with Chinnu to get beautified for the evening’s events while the guys went to a spice farm for a tour.
