What people are saying:

Devi and Ryan
Thank you for a performing a beautiful wedding Saturday. Your translations of everything were so perfect! We received SO many compliments from literally everyone (Hindu, non Hindu, white, Indian, Asian, Hispanic) who attended. I think the humor, timing and your explanations kept everyone really interested (which you know can be hard to do in a multiple hour traditional ceremony!)

Thank you again so much!

As the dust finally settles, we wanted to express our gratitude for your blessings on our wedding day. You were a hit among our guests….everyone was raving about how funny and amazing you were as you conducted our Hindu Wedding Ceremony at the Shree Swaminarayan Temple in Norwalk. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being apart of our special moments. Your blessings mean a lot to us.

Hindu Encounter With Modernity
