Happy Couple

Happy Couple

From Detroit, it was go Columbus! The wedding was yet another highlight of the trip. For long, I have been looking forward to meet this absolutely fine family from my husband's side. And being a total sucker for beautiful love stories, I would not have missed this wedding at any cost.

Here's the happy couple for you. Their delicious smiles touched every heart, I am sure and as I keep reiterating, I love inter-racial marriages for they speak of love amidst the prejudices that mangle the world :)

And here's Daddy's not-so-little girl with the first man in her life:)

Thats a very pretty bride there! :)

With the difficulties that have to be overcome and the prejudices that so sadly abound (even as this world becomes smaller) this photo is a joy to see. Wishing this handsome couple a wonderful marriage. How wonderful to see the photo of unification between the bride and father.

How not to stay charmed from so much sweetness! AUGURI !!!

Anna said...

WOW, her wedding sari is beautiful Moi....they do look so happy. And I am with you....my heart is touched by interacial relationships for that same reason you mentioned. I am glad you shared a few of the moments from their wedding.

Have a good one Moi!

Moi,
Thanks for visiting my blog, The CCR song-group was not Dutch, but from the USA. (sorry!)

I love really the photograps you made from this couple, both: the coloured one and the black and white too.

I like the point of view.

Great composition, Moi.
The top photo - the way his black suit becomes part of the border, and the bottom shot has a great angle to it.
Up here, interracial relationships are very common, usually a white male with a Hispanic or Asian girlfriend - we don't have too many East Indians here yet.
I had a Bolivian girlfriend for a long time & no problems.

Moi, what a beautiful couple! And a happy Papa. I think the B+W photo really shines, could be her luminous smile :-)

Sandeepa said...

You seemed to have a gorgeous vacation. Loved all the pics.
I like the shy smile on the bride's face, something hard to come by these days, the shyness that is

Ash said...

Beautiful couple, lovely!!

Moi said...

Yoda: I wish the same too :)

Radha : She is and there's more to her than just being a pretty face. I'll share on the blog in the next post, why I said so . :)

Ruth : such truth in your words.....Thanks for the beautiful words..:)

Nazzareno : :) I'm sure groom does not have the answer either ;)

Beautiful sari! And definitely seems like a happy couple. Very nice photo of the bride and her father as well.

Interracial marriages are very common in Canada, and I think in general they are probably freer from some of the prejudice that might exist in the States. The nature of Canadian multiculturalism is a bit different from that in the States. I would say it's more reflective of a celebration of diversity. I could be wrong, but that's my observation anyway.

Sorry about the deleted post above! I had to correct a spelling error.

JAM said...

Both are wonderful shots. The bride is beautiful and I especially like the one of the bride and her father.

Cris said...

She's so beautiful!!! What a special moment you caught.
