My Indian Wedding - Aashirvaadam

Aashirvaadam - Showering of Blessings was the last part of our wedding ceremony during which we first said "thank you" to the priest by offering him a tray with fruits and an envelop filled with money, and then we asked him and our uncle for their blessings.

Afterward we turned to our family and friends and asked them for their blessings, which they bestowed upon us by showering us with flower petals (I posted a short movie from that part of the ceremony here). It definitely felt wonderful to be showered with flowers and love, and it made me feel very special :) Thank you dearest friends.

Blessings from our uncle:
