beloveds, I am a stranger on the internet and I think your ceremony looks beautiful. Congratulations, I am thrilled for your little family of three.

next, a little bit of rain-- i want to give you a tiny heads up, you're getting discussed on reddit http://www.reddit.com/r/asianamerican/comments/2whc7v/white_people_have_an_indian_wedding_without_any/

There are three separate threads, and one's currently got 141 comments. Some people like your theme... and some are shouting 'cultural appropriation'. I assume you know what this is, if you don't, PLEASE Google a crash course asap! I am east asian myself, and I've recently decided that the CA cause is dumb-- I want to share my culture and I want everyone else to share too. But (1) not everyone agrees and (2), as a person of color, eschewing the CA fight is (unfortunately for you :-/ ) a privilege that I have and you don't.

In your favor, people have defended saying that you were respectful and didn't just use costumes but also included Hindu rituals. I checked out your "Why?" post but you don't have much more details than that.

and can I quote someone from the site? "I'm just glad we passed the point where the Indian theme is the weirdest thing in this photo and not that two men are marrying."

I found you and it's possible others will too, and if someone posts your names, they will all come and camp out. So I encourage you to think about how you would respond if they do.

Best wishes on your lovely future together. If an internet group comes over, just know they won't stay long. Many will come bearing good wishes.

Congratulations again.
