This beautiful Maharashtrian wedding was full of love and gentleness.  Sameer and Amit strongly believe that India will legalize homosexuality some day, and until then they're happy and honeymooning in Mexico.

Rani & Sonia

These two had a beautiful country barn wedding accented with Indian bits and bobs, reflecting the backgrounds of both grooms.  Instead of a havan to witness their union, they opted for a keepsake lantern, expertly mixing both of their heritages.
