Boat + Sangeet Party at The Addison Grove, Austin – Part 1 of 2 Kinjal + Romil

Hey everyone! I am excited to share with you the first part of Kinjal and Romil’s amazing two-day South Asian wedding celebration. The festivities kicked off with a fun-filled boat ride, and later on, we enjoyed a spectacular evening of sangeet celebrations at Addison Grove. It was truly a night filled with love, laughter, and endless dancing. Here’s Part Two of this epic wedding celebration!

I learned that turmeric, or Haldi as it’s called in Hindi, is a significant part of Indian cuisine and culture. The Haldi or Pithi ceremony is a pre-wedding purification ritual that involves the application of turmeric. It’s believed to have various healing, anti-inflammatory, and cleansing properties. It’s fantastic to witness how ancient traditions are being kept alive and celebrated even in modern times.

I hope this feels like you were there. And if you were, well, then you know already how amazing these two are. Their chemistry is undeniable, and their energy is infectious.
