Hey Karthik and Harini, I carefully considered your honeymoon question poll and after much delibration (and resultant sleepless nights), I concluded that the moon is the perfect destination for your honeymoon. You both are clearly out of this world and what better place to be swept off your feet by each other than in a zero gravity environment?? I am devastated that you chose to go to some clearly inferior locations have destroyed my hopes and dreams.. I wont be visiting this page anymore or keeping in touch with either of you, I hope you understand.

Hi Harini and Karthik:

A very hearty congratulations to both of you. Although I missed your marriage (because I was in NJ), and although I heard from my wife Kiran who attended the marriage saying it was very nice and beautifully decorated, I can tell you from the looks of the pictures and the album - you look absolutely fabulous and stunning ! !! and both of you are looking nothing less than best of the Tollywood, Bollywood or Hollywood pair. Naveen and Padma - you guys should seriously consider sending them both to movies, so that we can keep watching many more movies as they grow up !!

A very big congrats to both Naveen and Padma too for doing such an excellent life-event function for your daughter!! I am very proud and happy for both of you!

This was the best real-life love story and a marriage made in heaven!

I really enjoyed the whole album! very nicely done!

About Us


After deciding Harini was the girl of his dreams, Karthik hunted for the perfect ring. He'd selected a ring design and diamond after sifting through millions of options; a design that suited the princess he was after.

The next challenge was how to ask the big question? He'd already told her parents that he was so impressed with their daughter and that she was the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. With the ring in his pocket, he chased after her for days trying to find the perfect time to pop the question. Finally, the right time arrived during dessert at Little Italy, one of Harini's favorite restaurants. When she was served the dessert by her sweetheart, there sat a ring instead!

Next thing she knew, Karthik was on his knee asking her for her hand in marriage. Although she knew there were many suitors in line, she figured this guy was the man for her and said yes!

The scene was re-enacted royally at the Engagement Party on the 25th of December, 2011.

About Us

Our Story

Our story starts with two Indian mothers dreaming of finding the perfect match for their children. Between their connections, family, and friends, they found Harini & Karthik for each other. Karthik & Harini were introduced for the first time over email. After the first few awkward attempts, they tried a phone call instead. That first phone call lasted an hour...

Funny thing is, Karthik thought Harini wasn't interested. A week later, he recieved a simple text message: "so you've been busy?" From that text message onwards, they've been completely engrossed in each other.

With such distance between the two, they had to find some way of seeing each other. So everyday, each one would send a photo of themselves to the other; the album to the left documents some of those defining pictures. You'll also note a picture of the scratch paper Karthik used when writing letters in calligraphy to Harini, as well as the melted wax with which he sealed his love letters!

This is such a love story that Harini came all the way to the US to meet Karthik. Not only that, but she brought the whole family as well! To say he was blown-away would be an understatement. Have you ever heard of another couple who'd decided on each other before meeting?

In that first trip, they exchanged their promises to each other. Since then, their romance has continued... ;-)

About Us

The Groom

Hey guys & gals, I'm Karthik Kura, the 24 year-old son of Dr. Bhaskar & Mrs. Madhurima Kura. My other super important family member is, of course, my younger sister, Aamani. I was born in Pune, but the four of us have lived in the US in New Orleans, LA for around 17 years. Before that, we moved around a lot in India (Aamani was our anchor in the Big Easy!).

I really started my studies at Jesuit High School (home of the Blue Jays!) in New Orleans. After that, I continued on at Tulane for my bachelors in Biomedical Engineering. I've just finished my medical education at Tulane University and am looking forward to heading to New York for my residency in Anesthesiology at Albert Einstein / Montefiore Medical Center. Wish me luck!

About Us

The Bride

Hi, I'm Harini Boorgu, the 24 year-old daughter of Mr. Naveen & Mrs. Padma Boorgu. I have one bratty sister, Lakshmi, just three years younger than me. I grew up in Hyderabad with some of my cousins and extended family nearby; even now, I love spending time with my cousin-sisters, pednanna, and pedammas/atta. I also have lots of friends from school, college, and work who I enjoy hanging out with all the time.

I went to Osmania University for a bachelors degree in Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE) and continued on to get my masters in Engineering Management at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Since then, I've been working here in Hyderabad,India.

3rd Anniversary & the closing of our Wedding website...

Thursday, February 26, 2015

Dear friends & family,

Thank you for all of the love & support these past 3 years! Since getting married, we've delved into real life in NYC with a gusto that could only have been inspired by the wonderful celebrations we've shared with all of you. We look back at this website so often in wondrous disbelief that our wedding was no less than a fairy-tale to us.

But, as you've given to us in so many ways, we didn't feel it would be right to close this website without one last surprise from us to you... We are happily expecting our first child in April 2015!!!

Please continue to follow our life adventures at <>

Love always,

Harini & Karthik (+1)

Closing the honeymoon poll

Sunday, May 27, 2012

As Harini & I have already had TWO honeymoons (Kerala & California), we regretably have to close the honeymoon poll question. However, the results in descending order were Greece, Hawaii, and Spain with the Moon coming in at a close 4th. :)

Thanks so much for participating, but don't be upset! Another poll question has come up to take it's place...

New Orleans Reception location decided!

Friday, May 18, 2012

After narrowing down all of our options, we've finally chosen a location and date for our New Orleans reception. We're happy to announce that we'll be hosting all of our family and friends at the Astor Crowne Plaza New Orleans on the corner of Canal & Bourbon St.

One of the reasons we chose this particular hotel is because of its historic and iconic location. Anyone who comes to New Orleans wants to go to Bourbon St. so we thought we'd make it easy and enjoy dinner with our guests on a balcony overlooking the famed road. We look forward to seeing all of you there!

Sangeeth Video

Saturday, May 5, 2012

After all the editing and clipping, our Sangeeth video is finally available! Please check it out, leave comments, and enjoy... this amazing event was only possible thanks to our amazing friends and family members who worked so hard to make it happen. Harini's sister, Lakshmi, Karthik's sister, Aamani, and all of our friends and cousins put in weeks of hard work, so thanks again!
