Day 1: The Pithi and Haldi Ceremony

The festivities began with the Pithi and Haldi ceremony, a pre-wedding ritual that sets the stage for the upcoming union of the couple. The Westin's terrace was transformed into a vibrant space, decorated with marigold garlands and colorful drapes, reflecting the joyous spirit of the occasion.

Kushani and Mahavir were smeared with a paste made of turmeric, chickpea flour, rose water, and other ingredients, symbolizing purification and the start of their new journey. Laughter and love filled the air as family members took turns applying the paste on the couple.

Day 2: The Garba

The second day was dedicated to the Garba, a traditional Gujarati dance that allows both families to meet, mingle, and celebrate together. The Westin's grand ballroom was adorned with festive lanterns and twinkling lights, creating a mesmerizing ambiance for the evening.

Both families presented breathtaking dance performances, with the highlight being Kushani and Mahavir's dance, their chemistry undeniable as they swirled in sync to the rhythm of the music. The night ended with everyone joining in, dancing in unison and filling the room with energy and excitement.

Most families get their dandia sticks from India, however with the popularity of Indian weddings you can find dandia sticks directly from amazon. Here are a few options:

Day 3: The Baraat, Hindu Ceremony, and Reception

The final day was the pinnacle of the celebrations. The groom's procession, or the Baraat, was a lively affair, with Mahavir making his grand entrance on a beautifully adorned horse, accompanied by the sounds of traditional dhol and the cheers of the gathering.

The Hindu ceremony took place under a stunning mandap draped with roses and orchids. As Kushani and Mahavir took their seven vows around the sacred fire, their families watched on, their expressions a blend of joy and sentiment.
