  • “BANGLES, DIAMONDS, AND PEARLS” (For Debrah Leonard)
  • "HENNA"!!!

[Dallas, Texas, April 30, 2011.]

After the Vivah Ceremony Saturday morning (please see previous posts), friends and family reassembled that evening for dinner and dancing at a local country club.

Rishi and Lizzie arrived resplendent in their finery and accessories. In fact, all of the ladies were beautifully attired. They looked like princesses.

I thought Lizzie looked lovely in her evening dress, and the bangles around her wrists were both beautiful and fashionable. Her purse was the perfect complement.

Debrah, as many of you know, designs exquisite jewelry, and this collage is dedicated to her and to her fine art.

This is the last in the series. Thank you all for your kind and thoughtful faves, props, and comments!

THANK YOU, Maura, for the spotlight!

THANK YOU, Maria, for the spotlight!
