I got my makeup done at Plum, Gurgaon for both the ring ceremony and the wedding and was very happy with the services they provide and totally recommend them. I really am thankful to Monu (junior makeup artist) and Usha (senior makeup artist) for making me look so beautiful on my special day :)!
Here is a little collage I put together to share with you the mood of the wedding...it looked so grand! I was happy with the decoration and how it all came together! We had small candle/rose arrangements on each table. The decor was mainly white red and gold with orange and yellow from the genda phool (marigold) and roses. I was also really happy with the way my saree turned out. Vivek looked like a young prince and slightly overwhelmed with the happenings around him...did I mention we had the worst fog in Delhi in the last 7 years on that very night? Oh what a night it was! It was as if we were floating in clouds...like we had a destination wedding in the mountains...it was so cold and foggy...and all this while I only prayed for no rain on my wedding night..:D. God does listen to me...but is a big prankster I think!
The photographer will have a tough job correcting the pics...a lot of them were spoilt due to the fog..thankfully not all!
Will share some pictures from the mehndi/sangeet and shagun ceremonies here soon...and if you want to catch a glimpse of Bhutan (my honeymoon trip) hop on to my other blog www.kanikabahl.blogspot.com. I will be sharing pictures on that in the next couple of days!
Its great to be back, thanks for reading!

Sorry to have kept you waiting all this while for news from me....but here I am now and plan to be more regular from here on.
I arrived in Pune, Maharashtra on the 5th of this month (post my wedding and honeymoon..that's another post with pictures) all excited to set up my new house and make new friends, when two days later our Landlady calls and asks us to vacate the apartment by the end of the month, for she was moving back to the city!
I almost cried.
So we put some of our shopping for the house on hold and started to look for a house to live in all over again.
I am currently living in a beautiful society in Wakad area of Pune called The Woods. It is beautiful...green with a swimming pool and a fully functional club, squash courts, tennis courts...my Husband totally loves it (Husband yayaay I'm married). I like it too but for me it is a little far from the city and to buy every little thing say just eggs....its a 15 minute drive to Aundh area in the city (reasonable area to live in with thriving markets).
So I insisted on seeing some houses in Aundh as well. It is an old area and the building complexes are also old and not as fancy as The Woods. We have also seen an apartment in Aundh which we like..but the complex doesn't have a pool and squash court (that is a downer for my husband).
After a minor argument yesterday my impulsive husband called the broker to fix the deal on the apartment in Aundh. This is our first major project as a couple and I'm glad it happened...we are getting to learn a lot about each other, our likes and dislikes and how we make decisions..what guides us to them...it is important to see the positives in this situation. I just hope the apartment in Aundh proves lucky for both of us and that the whole shifting process is smooth. I hope my husband grows to like it a little more.
So that's that...we will be moving by the 1st week of March.
Hmm so rewinding a little...my wedding ceremony and all the pre and post ceremonies were super fun and went smooth...except for minor glitches like worst fog in Delhi in 7 Yrs on my wedding night...hahahha what a night it was....I'll share it in my next post with some pics for you to see :)
See you soon!
