If you’ve been keeping up with the last couple posts of Madhu & Amit’s mendhi celebration, and the pithi/sangeet dance party, you’ll know just how much awesome has been going down at Le Meridien Resort in Cancun. The wedding day of Madhu & Amit blew all expectations out of the water and truly represented an unparalleled finale to an incredible 4 days. This blog post is going to be epic in number simply because it was impossible to do it justice otherwise, so be prepared to get comfy and soak up ALOT of pictures!

I love the way their families shower their blessings not only with words and gifts, but by physically placing hands on their heads. At the end of the marriage ceremony, everyone comes and feeds each other sweets. It’s something that resonates deep with me as I believe that eating and sharing food is an experience that can have deeply profound effects on those who share in it. But that’s me, and I’m a foodie. :o)

Both Madhu & Amit are dynamic, artistic people. It wouldn’t surprise anyone to know that Madhu & Amit first met as models in a fashion show. Amit’s acting talent has made it to the big screen – you know the TV series Prison Break? Yeah he’s in it. Their careers formed the inspiration for their reception theme: the Oscars. All 280 guests got to strut their stuff on the red carpet, pose for pictures in front of a backdrop labeled with “M&A”, and even get hounded by hired Mexican paparazzi (and DQ of course!) to have their picture taken. It was an absolute blast! Now to put pictures to words, here they are…
