The haldi ceremony is a short event where the bride and groom-to-be are smeared with a paste made out of haldi, known in the States as turmeric, and rose water by family members. Turmeric is a homeopathic cure-all and kitchen staple, sprinkled into most Indian dishes. The haldi signifies good luck and happiness, and is even said to ward off blemishes on the big day.

Our Story
Love at first cone

Mike and Suchi met four years ago. After wooing Suchi online, Mike convinced her to meet him in Palo Alto for Gelato. Suchi proceeded to grill him on politics in the park to make sure he was a suitable catch.

Mike meets the whole family

In 2016 things started getting serious when Mike joined Suchi for a 3 week trip to India where he met her entire family, attended his first wedding with more than 1000 people and rode an elephant to name a few things.

Investing in the future

Suchi and Mike braved the Californian housing market just before getting engaged (she didn't need a ring on that finger). They are happily building a life together in Sunnyvale, with a puppy on the way!
