The Bride Wore Blue at The Hotel Bethlehem

Laden with gold and yards of turqoise blue silk, Deepti married Paul in a multicultural ceremony at The Hotel Bethlehem .  Some of Paul’s family members recited Irish blessings, others gave their blessings in Hebrew.  Deepti’s relatives, who originated in the southern most tip of India, gave their blessings in the ancient Tamil language.
The bride and groom exchanged garlands of fragrant flowers in the Indian tradition.
Deepti’s grandmother blessed the couple and scattered flowers over them followed by all the elders in the audience.
The groom was hoisted high in the air in the Jewish tradition as was the bride.
They both have bright futures in medicine,  helping and healing others.
