From the Photographer

Dr. Milly Bipin Turakhia and Kunal Jethalal Rambhia married in Baltimore on June 3. Ambrish Trivedi, a Hindu priest, led a ceremony that incorporated Jain traditions at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront.

 

The bride was a third-year resident in anesthesiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago at that moment. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and received her medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The groom is a graduate student in biomedical engineering at the University of Michigan. He graduated from Yale and received a master’s degree in biotechnology from Johns Hopkins. The couple started dating in Baltimore in 2013 after the mother of the bride gave her daughter’s number to the mother of the groom.

 

About Baraat Ceremony

Baraat is a groom’s wedding procession. In North Indian communities, it is customary for the bridegroom to travel to the wedding venue (often the bride‘s house) on a mare, accompanied by his family members. The baraat can become a large procession, with booking its own band and dancers. The groom and his horse are covered in finery and do not usually take part in the dancing and singing; that is left to the “baraatis” or people accompanying the procession. The groom usually carries a sword. The term baraati is also more generically used to describe any invitee from the groom’s side. Traditionally, baraatis are attended to as guests of the bride’s family.
