Married 5 Years Today! The Journey & Wedding Photos

Today's Mr.CZ & I's (or mine's?*confused*) 5th Wedding Anniversary! Overall, 9th year together...Phew! I thought I'd share some of our Hindu wedding photos. These are screenshots from the wedding video, coz somehow we don't have the album & photos. 
Details on my bridal outfit here. Makeup done at Ambika Pillai Studio from a Senior MUA for Rs.8000 in 2007 (They've got the best highlighter- it's in glitter form like diamonds. Will find out and let you know!) I also did my own bridal look here
2003: Met. Dated.
2003-2007: Live-in relationship ("Salaam Namaste" phase in between, but minus the knocked-up heroine!)
2007- 20??: Married.
         * More about our love story here 
Sindoor (Vermilion). The mark of a married woman

With father-in-law

"It's not always rainbows and butterflies, it's compromise that moves us along." ~ She Will Be Loved, Maroon 5.
 It hasn't always been easy, and it needs work & patience Every. Single. Day!
But then.....
"A 'perfect' relationship is like plain vegetable soup - so healthy, so pleasant, so clean, so.... bland. Throw in some chilli, some pepper, some soya sauce, some secret ingredient, and it becomes something else.... something worth stirring.... something worth burning your tongue with."  ~ CZ.

  23. Punju meets North-East (sorry I do not know which state you are from so I have no choice but to generalize) - not a combination you come across every day :) So how did families react when you guys decided to tie the knot? And did you have to be all secretive about the salaam namaste phase? (I wish I had! I made this big Gandhian mistake of letting my parents know and it was fire and brimstone! I had to promptly stay put with them till they got me married off to him!)

    Anyway, drama and spicy soup apart - CONGRATS!! 5 years is indeed a milestone. I suppose now it is only fair that your blogger buddies b(l)og you down with the oh-so-ughtastic "When are you going the family way?" question. He he he.

    1. Hehe...it's Punju meets Khasi :) . Families were fine with the marriage, and Salaam Namaste phase wasn't that much of a secret and assumed since we both didn't live with families anymore.

      Family way? No idea! No time! :D

  24. Congratulations on reaching this milestone! Your wedding looks SPECTACULAR!

  25. Congrats CZ on completing 5 yrs of married life !!! You looked sooo cute on your wedding day !! And your thoughts abt love and life at the end are soo true...we all have moments when we want to hit the male ego in the head and then there are times when we think its the best things to have happened to us :D

  49. Wow.. Such a love story, huh? :) You guys started dating in 2003, wow I was 16 then. I could only thought of such b'ful love story back then which actually happened to me few years later. I met my partner in 2008 and within six months of dating we moved together, but it wasn't salam namaste types as I was paying rent officially somewhere else also and I was going to stay with my flatmates once a month, for 1-2 weeks and rest of the time I was living in with him. I never let it become a full fledged live in for the fear of my family, was scared what if they find out. We lived in together for 1 and a half yrs before we married. It was such a beautiful feeling. We're married for 2 years now and my family still doesn't know. His family had some idea though as they couldn't think of any other reason why their son ditched his friends of 7 years and started living alone :D
    I wish you all the best to you guys, many more to go. Wish you a blessed life together :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
