Same sex marriages have become almost acceptable in some societies, though in India, they still remain a rarity and are still frowned upon as abnormal conduct.
But with the first Indo American lesbian wedding that turned out to be a happy occasion for almost every one invited.
Seema and Shannon made history as the first Indo American lesbian couple to tie the knot. The wedding took place on July 9, 2013 at SmogShoppe in Los Angeles, California.
Their sexual orientation may set them a bit apart from the regular heterosexual couples, but the essence of the union was the same.
The brides were dressed in both the Indian and American customs, taking part in the very Indian marriage rituals.
In an age when cross country marriages are still hesitantly accepted, this Indian bride and her American bride opened our eyes to an entirely different kind of marriage.
The couple are homosexuals and they belong to different cultures. Most importantly, they married for love.
And even after the wedding that happened months ago, the pictures continue to go viral over the net, specifically on social networking sites.
