Saturday, December 31st, the last day of 2005 and I was getting married :) Let me tell you, this day was the most surreal day everÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ but we had a blast.
Friday night, DhevanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dad Raja had his brother and family visiting. They all stayed over at their house and the next morning we had a very typical Indian breakfast. Samosa (deep fried vegetable pastry) and Dosa (something like tortillas) with Coconut Chutney (like a Coconut-mint dip). It tasted really good (although I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think I am going to change my breakfast habits to Indian food ;)).
Then Jon and I took showers and got ready to go to Las Vegas. Dhevan was going to come with us as our witness. We left around 2:45 p.m. and it took us about an hour to get to the courthouse. It was raining and very windy in Las Vegas! First Jon and I had to go the Marriage License Bureau and apply for a marriage license. There were quite a few guys standing outside of the courthouse to advertise for different wedding chapels. It was overwhelming. Inside the courthouse we had to get in line, because there were quite a few couples who signed up for the marriage license. I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t expect so many people to be there (already I had read that New YearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Eve is a popular day to get married in Vegas). Fortunately we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to wait for too long and after 15 minutes, we had our marriage license. We decided to take one of the guys in front of the courthouse up on his wedding offer and a limousine took us to one of (the many) wedding chapels. On the ride, The Doors were playing on the radioÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ what a funny coincidence!
