TheMangala Sutramuis tied around the brides neck during the wedding and retained for life. It is the most auspicious symbol of marriage and the pendants are kept close to heart.

This is an extremely emotional event for the brides mily, since the daughter they raised so r is leaving the house and the separation is final.

The ancestry of the bride and groom, including their spiritual lineage from the earliest sages, and four generations of forethers is narrated by the priests. The parents of the bride arrive from their event to theMandapamand express happiness that the groom is suile and start the Kanyadan a ritual to give away the bride. In preparation for the Kanyadan, the ther of the bride offers additional strands of sacred thread, some with ceremonial strands of silver and gold to the groom.

The groom then slips silver toe rings on the brides feet. He ties a necklace with blackbeads and gold.

Later the bride dons new clothes following a bath. The bridetobe wears flowers in her hair. She adorns her forehead with a bindi or vermillion dot and wears bangles on her wrists. All the elderly women and their husbands that had a long happy married life are invited to bless the bride to have a similar happy married life. This functions takes place at brides residence.

Abithishta pruthanyatha ssahasva prutanayathaha

The parents of bride and the groom treat each other and the immediate mily members with gifts. The mother of the groom then presents gifts such as gold and diamond ornaments and new clothes. The bride may be requested to wear the new clothes and the ornaments. Upon her return, the bride and the groom are seated next to each other.  This ceremony concludes with blessings by the priests and the elders of the assembly.

I may obtain salvation by this noble deed.

At the end of each circumambulation, the bride will be asked to step on a grind stone called sannikallu. The husband holds right toes of his wife and places them flat on the stone while reciting

The priests on behalf of Brides ther recite May my daughter gain protection, May holiness prosper, May there be Joy, May she be a whole, May she live long, flourish, be at peace, well nourished, and content.

Satyanarayana Pooja and Venkateswara Deeparadhana

The priest starts the function with a brief worship service by reciting a few verses of prayers. On behalf of the two milies about to be united through the solemn ceremony of the wedding, one of the elders welcomes all the guests and requests them to be seated. The priest of the host, with the entire assembly as witness, announces the lineage of the bride and speaks a few words about their mily. The priest of the groom then announces the lineage of the groom and speaks a few words about his mily . He then declares the intentions of the brides ther to seek alliance was wholeheartedly accepted by the grooms ther. He further declares that the elders of both milies approved this most appropriate alliance and the marriage date and time has been set and reads out the wedding invitation card for the assembly.

Setting a date for a Vedic wedding is an extremely complex process of calculation of planetary positions to match two variables. The variables are the planetary positions at the exact time of birth of bride and groom. The constellation of planets and their relationships should match in a harmonious way when the groom touches the bride and looks into her eyes while the Vedic verses are being recited by the priests. This specific time has to be in only certain lunar months considered auspicious for a wedding. If it is in the day, it has to be before the noon while the son is ascending. The time has to be corrected by a few minutes based on the calculated time of sunrise and sunset at the place of wedding, on that day. Our mily astrologer in India, following several hours of calculation decided that ndJune , at AM, is the most appropriate time for the Wedding. This time is called Muhurtam in sanskrit.

Then the darbha girdle Yoktra placed around the birde is removed. The groom recites the following prayers and then unties the dharbha string he has tied earlier

May prosperity prevail, May any illness be struck down, May you grant this day to be happy one, May you bless her wellbeing, may you grant her abundance, May you grant her respect and status.

Snaathakam  Convocation or prologue to marriage

We had our engagement on the stof December, . On that day, the formal ceremony in front of witnesses, mostly close friends and relatives of both parties, began with prayers to Lord Ganesh to remove all the obstacles. Following the invocation of his lineage, the ther of the bride made a formal proposal for the marriage alliance. The ther of the groom while accepting the proposal gave a happy and affirmative response to declare his commitment for the union of the milies through the institution of marriage between the groom and the bride. This was followed by more prayers, gifts to bride and groom and exchange of clothes and gifts between milies. At the conclusion of the function both parents agree to consult learned priests with knowledge of astrology to set a date for the wedding.

The groom ties a rope of responsibility around the waist of the bride while prayingAgnithe Fire god to give her all the strength necessary to shoulder the responsibilities of a mily life.

PreWedding Rituals weeks to months before the wedding

A silk cloth cradle was made and a sandalwood doll is placed, sometimes with a ripe mango/banana and turmeric was placed in it to pray for an off spring as healthy as the ripe mango, as pure as the turmeric and as selffragrant as the sandalwood. The sister of the groom approaches the bride and asks her for nephew/nice or a dairy cow. The bride replies that she would give both. This ritual is a prayer for healthy children, and to create interest of motherhood in the bride.

The fire ceremony is the most essential part of the Hindu and Vedic wedding and also by law the marriage is not complete unless this ritual is completed. The groom then leads the bride towards Homam Altar, hearth or fire pit for exclusive use of ritualistic offerings or sacrifice.

Kanyam Kanaka Sampannam kanakabharanairyutham,

This Homam is an extremely ancient ritual that was performed when marriages were performed between a man and women hailing from the same village or town and hence not applicable. In the evening when the stars appear in the sky, the priest shows the couple the constellation of Ursa Major and the Arundhati star Alcor, a star that is in close proximity to Vasista Mizar. Arundhati, the ideal wife of vasistha maharshi the great saint, is exemplified as a most virtuous woman and an embodiment of chastity. The event is to inform the bride of marital virtue of Arundhati and to seek her blessings.

The two mangalsutras are united ona common thread and are attached to a gold chain days after the wedding. An elder member of the mily or the husband himself can unite the two mangalsutras on a common thread. A few black or golden beads are slipped between the two plates so that they dont clash with each other, signifying harmony between the two milies. The bride takes a bath and wears a new sari before wearing the mangalsutra on this day. The number is a very auspicious number among Hindus. Also, days are symbolic of the time needed by the bride to understand her husbands mily.

The detailed explanation below was carefully and painstakingly written by Ganeshs ther, Dr. Narasimham Dasika after collecting and digesting information from several books and from his own expansive knowledge of ancient rites and rituals. We thank him immensely for putting in the time and effort to do this. It is a tremendous resource for us as a new bride and groom to help us better understand the meaning of the wedding ceremony and the promises we make for a happy marriage together. It is also beneficial for you, our guests, to help you follow along during the ceremony.

The parents of the bride exit the stage briefly. The bride and groom sit side by side.

O maiden, I tie this sacred thread, essential for my long life, around your neck. Having many auspicious attributes, may you live happily with me for a hundred years

Tying Madhuparkam the bride and groom together is called Brahmamudi. The priest will tie a knot between the upper garments of the groom and the bride for the next set of events. The groom ties a sacred thread around the wrist of bride and for her protection from evil. He declares in front of the fire thatPooshatweto vayatu..  maavadasiYou may come to my house on a chariot of Ashwini dieties to become the master of my house and take control of the household. This is done before  pradhana Homam.

The bride and the groom then performpoojato the Gold pendants to invoke sanctity into the pendants.  The priest recites the following, addressed to God

This ceremony involves anointing the bride with oil and turmeric by women folk. The women folk pound turmeric roots at that time.

Since ancient Vedic times, the people of India are classified into tribes, with each tribe carrying a specific name called Gotra. It is not permitted to conduct a wedding between a man and women of same Gotra, since Aryan times, to prevent consanguineous weddings. The Pravara that includes the gotra, the great sages of that tribe and the lineage of the preceding generations of ancestors is announced loudly for everyone present to witness the wedding to hear. This is repeated times such that everyone present agrees that the lineage is distinctly different. Even if the Gotras are different, marriages are not approved if more than one sage is common.

The couple perform their firstpoojain their own home. This done on the first or second day after arrival of the bride to her new home.

Following the bridal bath, a paste or powder from the leaves of Henna plant is used to create elaborative decorative patterns on the hands and feet of the bride on this day. Following an hour or more of contact of henna with skin, a delicate shade of reddish brown is imparted on the applied areas. This forms a striking contrast on the skin that has already acquired a golden hue with the earlier application of turmeric before her bath. The friends and relatives of the bride may also participate in the event.

The hosts, brides mother and ther and married women of brides mily wait at the Mandap Venue with flowers, Garlands and other items for the ritual. The Bridegroom arrives at the wedding hall along with his mily and friends in a procession. They are then received by the brides mily and friends. Live Indian Drums and wind instrumental music begins to play. The brides mother performs Dishti to ward off evil eye with Paarani plate containing red ed water and throws away the water along with the evil it captures. Then she performsAaratiritual with an oil lamp by waving the light times, clockwise in front of the groom and steps aside to allow the ther of the bride to say welcome words. The other women in the brides mily help the hosts in inviting the guests and sprinkle the guests with flowers, perfumed water and sometimes with ncy garlands. All of them together walk towards the prearranged stage. Since this segment of the wedding is not according to ancient Vedic tradition, guests and hosts wear suits or other s of nontraditional attire.

The groom stands in front of the bride. A small Yoke is held on the head of the bride by the priests. Drops of holy water are allowed to drip through the hole of the yoke after passing over Gold. During this ritual vedic verses in praise of celestial king Indra requesting him to eliminate any hidden deficiencies in the health of the bride, in an identical shion he blessed another bride Apala in ancient times. The verses say,

She then sprinkles nine kinds of grains nava dhnylu in ritually decorated earthen pots filled with soil from an ant hill. The ants bring out extremely fine clay from the earth often from depths of a hundred feet to build their dwelling. The soil from an anthill where no one steps their foot is specifically collected for this purpose since it represents a sample from a very wide area with no human or animal waste. These pots with the grains inside them are preserved in the brides house for germination. This is symbolic of the germination process of human life or progeny for which a marriage is conducted.

During the performance of thispoojaor worship, the bride typically sits in a hand woven basket lined with a sprinkle of unprocessed rice grains while performing this ritual.

PreWedding Rituals days before the wedding

This ritual is performed at the bridegrooms place of residence or in our case the hotel. The groom has completed his formal and religious education and the rites constitute him a Dwija born again in the Vedic culture. To eliminate unknown errors in following the vow of brahmacharya, the groom and his parents would repeat all the Vedic rituals done thus r in an abbreviated shion. So this function is unique to Brahmins and involves brief repetition of all the sacraments during Grooms life until now. The groom is now ready to become aSanyasiMonk or ascetic by relinquishing the materialistic world, unless he decides to marry and become a householder gruhasta śram.

The rice mixed with a touch of turmeric seeking abundance of the same in the new home.

Prayers are then offered to the wife of celestial Lord Indra.  While reciting the prayers, a gold ring is dropped into a large vessel filled with water.

This includes comprehensive description of origin of the bride and groom including the origins of their culture, geography of their land, ancient rulers, holy places, and the reason for giving away the bride. Since the parents of the bride are giving away their beloved daughter for the benefit of progeny and growth of a new mily, it is considered as the greatest of all duties and sacrifices and calls for a Mahasankalpam. It is a belief that the generations of ancestors and generations of descendants of brides ther are blessed by this great event.

Holding each others hand with fire as an eternal witness to marriage, the bride and groom pledge and declare to all those present that they have accepted one another voluntarily.

All the honorable guests arrive and take their seats at wedding hall venue by AM for the event.

Our wedding will be conducted over two days. The many rites and rituals which are a part of our wedding incorporate vows in Sanskrit with great significance in the presence of fire, concealed prayers to five elements, the symbolic replay of celestial events and extensive prayers to seek the blessings of the planets, celestial holy men and ultimately the God. We have made an attempt to describe the events of a Vedic Hindu wedding in English with translation of key parts of the vows by bride and groom. We would like to share the significance of these elaborate Hindu wedding rituals and the concealed meaning with all of you.

The marriage ceremony over, the bride is taken to the grooms home for Griha Pravesh entering the house for the first time. When they reach his house, he says Enter with your right foot. Do not remain outside. The bride enters the home placing the right foot considered auspicious, first. When the bride and the groom enter the grooms house, the mother of the groom welcomes the bride by doing anAarati. The couple retire into their own rooms.

This is a fun event and is exclusively unique to Telugu speaking milies of the state of Andhra Pradesh. The main purpose of this is event is to break the ice between the members of the two milies. During this event the mother of the bride tries to make fun of future motherinlaw of her daughter and the mother of the groom reciprocates the gesture with similar tongue in cheek comments. Each party sings colloquial songs in their native language to belittle the other party. This party is traditionally held on the day after the wedding, but can be performed anytime since it is not a Vedic event. Later both parties join in an informal dinner.

O celestials, this woman is leaving her own behind and is following me to join my mily. I am performing these oblations, requesting you to grant her sle and prosperous life, virtuous children, and a life without sorrow.

Mangalasutra Dharana Tying of the Mangalsutra with three knots

As the event progresses, the recitation states

Two more sets of sacred threads knotted with strands each are added to the preexisting single set with strands of Yajñopavtam, the groom has across his chest since he began his pursuit of formal education as Brahmachari. The strands symbolize his indebtedness to Teacher, Parents and God including the five elements. Having declared his intent to let go of his brahmacharya stage during earlier at sntakam, the groom now proceeds to take on yagnpavtam with three threads. The ther of the bride also offers additional threads of gold and silver.

As a condition for this offering his daughter for marriage, the ther of the bride requests a promise from the groom for assisting the bride in realizing the three endsdharma,artha, andkamaand request him to never to transgress her rights. With these words, the ther of the bride pours water on the hands of the groom through the hands of bride.

The parents of the bride are the hosts of this entire event which is performed in a separate room, not in the main Mandap wedding stage. They start the day very early in the morning by GanapatiPooja. This is followed by Punyahavachanam, a ritual to purify the venue and all the material used for the event and seek blessings from the priests and elders. The bride later joins them and sits by the side.

On the other hand, the wedding is an event filled with deeply meaningful and symbolic combination of rituals, prayers and traditions at the conclusion of which the couple are expected to lead a life of perfect monogamous companionship with mutual respect, dependence and love. Love begins with the marriage according to Hindu tradition. The rituals of a Hindu wedding, often referred to as a Vedic wedding, are derived from ancient scriptures called Vedas, written in Sanskrit. The Vedas are scriptures from IndoAryan culture, the s of which were transmitted orally from generation to generation with specific intonation and rhythm. They are believed to be at least , years old. The rituals and Vedic incantations provide some of the foundations of a Hindu marriage to provide a binding spiritual and religious sacrament with progressive love between a man and woman.

The bride arrives at theMandapamby being carried in a basket by her maternal uncles. She continues to sit in the same handwoven basket in which she performed the Gauri Puja. After she is placed on theMandapam, the bride and groom ce each other but are separated by a curtain.

Holding each others hands, tied together with upper cloth, the couple takes seven steps. With each step a verse is recited and Lord Vishnus blessings are sought. Seven little heaps of rice is arranged in a line. The groom slips a silver toe ring on the second toe of the bride.

This is the final event on the stage. The bride will be ritualistically be declared as part of the grooms mily. The ther and the mother of the bride joins the hands of the bride inidually to the groom, his parents and sister. He recites, I have nurtured this child till this age and I am handing her over to your mily for the prosperity and progeny of her husband. Dear parents and sister of the groom, from now on consider her as your own daughter and be a guide and philosopher.

The bridegroom holds the bride by the hand and both walk three times around the nuptial fire. Both offer oblations and recite appropriate Vedic hymns to Gods for prosperity, good fortune, and conjugal fidelity. They touch each others heart and pray for union of their hearts and minds.

Recitation of the Pravara Announcement of Lineage

A canopy is erected at the house of bride to days before wedding.

The two front stars of the constellation point to the Dhruva Star Polaris, the brightest star in the Ursa minor. Since this star is stationary, the couple look at the star as a symbol of sility.

This is exactly performed at AM. After the priest recites the wedding slokas verses from the Vedas, the bride and groom apply a small cake made from a paste of cumin seeds jeera and raw sugar jaggery on each others heads, across the curtain. The significance is slightly bitter cumin and sweet jaggery when ground together turn into an inseparable mixture, denoting that the bride and groom are supposed to become inseparable through lifes bitter and sweet times. The cake is kept exactly at anterior anel, an esoteric aperture that is believed to transmit visual and spiritual energy between them to become an inseparable couple.

The priests say the following words in Sanskrit

This is the most important part of the ceremony that confirms and sanctifies the marriage. Only after this ritual, the bride and the groom are accepted as married religiously socially and legally.

The bride and groom shower one another with talambaraalu, rice mixed with saffron turmeric, brought on to the stage earlier. This signifies the couple‟s desire for happiness, enjoyment and contentment. Initially they take turns to shower the grains on each other while the priest recites

SinceAgnithe fire Diety is common to humans and celestials, he is respectfully requested to take the offering made through him to be delivered to the intended celestial deity. All the great Hindu epics state thatAgniis a messenger and mediator between God and human. It is believed that any offerings made throughAgniis consumed here on earth and reaches the intended deity.

The Terasalla is then removed. The bride and the groom are instructed to look into each others eyes and the place in between eyes. The following Vedic verses are chanted at that time

After the declaration events, their milies perform Aarti a ceremony that involves placing a lit oil lamp or diya on a plate and circling the plate around a person in a clockwise direction. The clockwise movement is followed to imitate the earths movement around the sun. The ceremony is significant as it carries with it the milys prayer that the mind of the bride and groom be illuminated by wisdom.

Muhurtham Setting a Date and Time for the Wedding

These are verses each of which is addressed to Trinity, rulers of eight directions, elements, great sages, virtuous women enumerated in epics, planets, rivers and great trees including all vegetation to look after the bride and groom with extreme kindness.

The priest also addresses the audience who are witnesses to the event

They requestAgnito gradually reduce her attachment to her parents home and to increase attraction to husbands house.

The bride boils a very small quantity of rice and offers it toAgni, the firegod ritualistically. The rice made for the first time by the bride as a house wife is offered symbolically toAgni.

Any event of religious significance in Vedic culture starts with this event. This is process by which the person that performs a ritual orpoojahas to announce the minutest specifics of location, time, his identity and the reason for performing the event. The extremely complex specifics include the continent, its shape, the country, geographic relation relative to India, nearest Ocean, river or great lakes, specific millennium, specific named year, direction of journey of sun, name of the lunar month, day of the lunar cycle Tithi time taken by moon to move degrees from sun, in a cycle, day of the week, name of the star closer to the moon, name of the performer, his ancestry, and all the reasons for performing that event, all in Sanskrit.

May you the great assembled grant the present time to be most Auspicious.

An ideal Hindu life revolves around four stages called śrams, the first of which is a stage of education as a bachelor brahmacharya śrams, the second is that of a householder gruhasta śram, the third is that of an elderly recluse vnaprastha śram, and finally a renouncer of worldly belongings sanysa śram. The first stage of Brahmacharya concludes with the wedding. In ancient Indian culture,vivaha, or marriage, is considered as a social arrangement for the initiation of a lifelong companionship and lawful union between a man and a woman for the purpose of leading a life ofDharmafulfillment of duties towards their ancestors, descendants and the society in which they live,Arthacreation and management of wealth,Kamaphysical union for progeny, and finally to achieve Moksha liberation of soul for eternal happiness with good deeds.

•           Fourth step for the sake of love and conjugal happiness

May all the great assemble here grant this moment to be especially auspicious.

Their getaway car, a WWII era army Jeep, was also a very special piece of mily history. Tyler grew up in Papua New Guinea which is where Tylers dad salvaged the jeep from the jungle. He restored it when Tyler was a kid so we got to recreate a photo with Tyler, his brother, and his dad based on a photo they took when Tyler was younger!

Alysa always wears a bracelet that belonged to her greatgreatgrandmother. Its engraved with her greatgreatgrandmothers name and the year ! I was so excited to photograph this bracelet that is such a huge part of her mily history.

Thisdiamond pendantis wearable, unique, and absolutely beautiful. Diamond pendants are a classic jewelry item that can enhance any outfit; their radiance goes with everything. The ovalshaped diamond in this piece adds a unique touch to this diamond pendant, which would more commonly have a round or princess shaped diamond.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

Black diamonds have been rising in popularity in the world of fine jewelry. Their bold, rich look adds a cool, edgy feel to every piece theyre used in. Theseblack diamond studs, securely bezel set in k white gold, provide a boldly beautiful way to wear these distinctive diamonds.

Is there any jewelry more classic and gorgeous than a pair ofdiamond studs? These earrings are the definition of classic beauty, featuring two radiant white diamonds set in k white gold. If your Valentine doesnt have a pair of diamond studs in her collection yet, shell be overjoyed to receive them this year.

One thing that was unique is that we had the cocktail hour before the ceremony. We wanted people to relax and not feel rushed. People were skeptical and it took a little extra coordination, but it ended up working out really well. We had a great jazz band led by local musician Mark Meadows and everyone really seemed to have a great time, so much so that we ended up extending it for another halfhour!

We met in college during our senior year at Syracuse University. The house we lived in had two apartments; my friends and I lived upstairs and Justin and his friends lived downstairs. We started hanging out and found out that we had a lot in common and had a lot of fun together, and our relationship evolved from there. We dated for seven years before getting engaged! We had talked about the engagement and picked out the ring together so the engagement wasnt a big surprise, but we had a nice evening in and celebrated with a special bottle of champagne.

Calligraphy is one of my moms hobbies, so she was able to design the invitation, the menu, and the placecards. She also addressed all of the envelopes! My husbands cousin makes artisanal lip balm, so we also included two varieties of her lip balm, with custom labels, as wedding vors for all of our guests.

Tell us how you met and became engaged!Alysa Tyler met when they both worked at a corporate real estate office in downtown Charlotte NC. On Alysas first day on the job, they hadnt set up a desk or space for her yet so they had her sit at Tylers as he was in California on vacation. She sat there for a whole week, wondering who this guy was with his mini Masters putter and Ghandi quote. After the week, the finally met in person and she thought he was really cute!They were in Charleston for Alysas birthday weekend. Theyd gone out on her actual birthday so she figured the night after would be laid back. Midday Tyler told her they had dinner reservations downtown. When she was starting to get ready, he asked her to go on a golf cart ride to some of their vorite spots in Mt. Pleasant. When Tyler took Alysa to the last stop, he got down on one knee. He had a photographer hiding who captured it and the moments after. Afterwards, he had a car pick them up and take them downtown where both of their milies were waiting as an added surprise.

While visiting New York City for my birthday, I decided to book a few appointments to try on dresses with my mom, my future motherinlaw, and a few friends. I found the gown at the second place we went to, called Wedding Atelier. The gown was designed by Christos Yiannakou, who actually happened to be there! It was an off the shoulder long sleeve corded lace bridal gown.

Alysa and Tyler celebrated their nuptials on a sunny day atLowndes Grove Plantation. Planned byPure Luxe Bride, the couple wed under a floral and wood arch designed byPetalosowith the gorgeous marsh as their backdrop, then dined under cafe lights and candles with their guests. Personal touches like the brides antique bracelet belonging to her greatgrandmother and  the restored WWII getaway Jeep from the grooms ther make the event extra special and you can check out all the lovely details in these s byCatherine Ann Photography.

Jessica and Justins elegant DC wedding is filled with classic detail, historic architecture and a muted palette that works beautifully against the views of our capital city. The event took place atDAR Constitution Hallwith an outdoor ceremony and a ballroom reception filled with florals byWild Green Yonder. The couple decided to go against the grain with a preceremony cocktail hour and jazz band to get the vibes going and it was so well received, they even extended it an extra halfhour! We love all the elegant details and its all captured beautifully on film byAudra Wrisley.

Well, I think the most memorable part for both of us was the first dance. We had worked with a choreographer and had been practicing the dance for months, but it was still pretty intense to have everyone watching. While I dont think anyone would mistake us for professionals, we ended up hitting every step. The whole process of learning the choreography, practicing and then finally doing the dance together in front of all of our mily and friends was really special. It was also a huge relief when it was over!

Diamonds are a girls best friend so thesediamond hoopsfeaturing brilliant round cut diamonds might just end up being her soul mate after you, of course. These dazzling earrings, with their twin rings of radiant white diamonds, are classically beautiful and simply to die for.

These pieces are fromDiamond Studs, known for their classic and timeless jewelry selection. Their sister company,Diamond Wish, is known for theirunique engagement rings, like the gorgeous blue and white diamond ring pictured above. This ring, which features an elegantly scalloped halo of diamonds around its blue center stone, is a beautiful example of an alternative engagement ring. Alternative engagement rings are a great change to classic white diamond engagement rings. Theyre great for the modern bride that seeks out a more unique and personal feel and isnt afraid to deviate from tradition. Alternative engagement rings are also having their moment in the spotlight right now!
