Often our friends would ask us about how weddings happen in Nagaland. Whether it was mostly about love or arranged marriages. So, we caught up with a friend , Temsumongla – from across the miles to share her wedding story with us…….
How did you meet your husband?
I met him about a year and three months ago, when he came home (Dimapur) on one of his few holidays to India. He has been working abroad for a while and we had never met before until this time. My now mother-in-law somehow pulled it off trying to introduce the two of us and that is how it all started – very simple and little hassle to say the least.
When did you get married? Your wedding theme? Were you nervous?
It was the 9th of Dec’ 2015 at 7 in the morning and I was everything but nervous.
The ninth of December turned out to be a blessing. The floral vintage themed decoration, the Naga food, the people, the weather…oh boy! I couldn’t have asked for more.
“I like to think that the whole of universe conspired with us from the beginning because thereon, everything just happened in a jiffy and in a very relaxed mode.I have read and been told time and again that marriage is a heavy word and the decision involved is even heavier. But for us, it was magic.”
So, how is life like after marriage?
We are now here far away from home in Pennsylvania in a beautiful city called Phoenixville. He goes to work and I read, write and plant herbs 🙂 We are celebrating life and acknowledging God each day for the “magic” he gifted us and the beautiful moments we share each day.
