One of the things I love most about Canada is the opportunity we have to meet and mingle with people from all over the world. But most importantly, we have the opportunity to unite cultures, backgrounds, and make some of those our own. There’s a few things that have no barriers and one of them is Love. The love that unites Hope and Kaush is evidence of this.
This was my first South Indian ceremony. Some of the rituals were new and I am so glad I was there to experience them. On the day of the first ceremony one of my favourite parts was when Kaush went for a walk and pretended to leave and Hope’s dad had to convince him to stay. It was priceless. It all took place at the Oakville Convention Centre, which was the perfect location to accommodate all the different components for this ceremony, including a delicious indian buffet style lunch. Did I mention it was delicious?
Day two was the Canadian portion of the celebrations, a Christian ceremony at St. Paul’s United Church in Brampton, followed by a photo session at Vivian Lane. This was also in downtown Brampton. We finished the photoshoot at the Shoe Factory. I am sure the pictures are going to turn out amazing.
When the end of the day was approaching, we headed to Lionhead Golf Club to finish off with a great party. Both the families and the bridal party delighted their guests with a great dance choreography. The show that stole the night was the performance of Hope’s two nieces and sister. It was just super cute, everybody was laughing with some of the funny lyrics and there were even some tears rolling down some cheeks. It was beautiful.
But again, the love and acceptance of each other’s cultures was felt and seen. We are very happy for Hope and Kaush and wish them nothing but the best.
