My Big Fat Indian Wedding
Sejal Samar, left, and Gaurav Jodhawat cruise Udaipur's Lake Pichola. It was over lunch at the gleaming Lake Palace Hotel, occupying an island in the background, that they confirmed their intention to wed. "It's the most romantic place in this city of romance," says contributing editor Daisann McLane, who attended the colorful ceremonies in Udaipur, the city known as India's "wedding central," and wrote "My Big Fat Indian Wedding" for the October 2007 issue of Traveler. Visible on the lakeshore (to the right) is an even grander landmark, the City Palace.
