What we've got here is a photo from the interminable photo reception directly following the wedding. Pretty much every relative Desh has even vaguely heard of and all family friends etc. had to have their pictures taken with the newly married folks. The *best* part of this was that not only was there a photographer taking pictures, there was also a videographer (did I make that word up?) slowly panning across each group of people. So that is going to be a totally exciting video- showing exactly what the photos showed but taking longer to view.
Left to Right: Anne- Sarah's sister, she's studying to be an archaeologist and is super nice; Desh- aka Vainateya or Sohna (spelling? Means golden boy) he's the one getting married...; Reena- the 10 year old who did the mehndi on my hands and Anne's hands- she was my favorite (well, one of my favorites); Sarah! aka Wylder (though now Wylder Deshpande, which is more of a mouth full) she now has a lot more jewelry than before her wedding which I guess you can't really tell in this picture; and me- in my super snazzy salwar kameez that I kind of just want to live in.
I'm working on getting pictures up on flickr and facebook and will update you as soon as that goes through.
