Ram and Belinda had a beautiful outdoor ceremony, which was led by a Hindu priest in Sanskrit. The ceremony also included passages from the Christian faith, and it was a wonderful blend of cultures. The couple were wed under a traditional Indian Mandap. Belinda wore a stunning red sari and her hands were covered in beautiful henna designs, while Ram wore a handsome Sherwani. As part of tradition, the two exchanged Var Mala and started to sprinkle rice on each other. Soon it became a food fight with Ram and Belinda throwing the rice all over each other. Then Ram picked up the entire bowl of rice and poured it on Belinda’s head!!!
