To make it very different from their first (a lobster and clambake reception), the pair decided to have an Indian wedding, a tribute to Michel's deceased father, who was born and raised in India. "Our decision also involved our own love for India and our passion for the yogic way of life,"  says Karen.

"During the ceremony, Michel and I put our foreheads together and touched each other's chests as part of a prayer for the union of our hearts and minds. I think it was an intense moment for everyone because so many guest were talking about it later on."
