The morning of the wedding ceremony at Griffin Gate Marriott started early with the girls getting ready on the 7th floor. There was bustling about giggling, selfie-ing, and maybe a little dancing.

The bridesmaids wore pink and gold saris, although some had never worn a sari before, you’d never know it!

We thought we’d have to walk across the golf course on foot, but a couple of the groomsmen decided to see if we could use some golf carts. We were on a golf course after all. The guys came through big. They came back with not one, not two, but seven golf carts!
