A video of newlywed Hannah Rogers, 31, showing off her traditional Indian wedding attire to family and friends, has racked up 12 million views on Instagram.
People all over the world wished her all the best on her wedding through the comments section.
Rogers, a Los Angeles-based immigration attorney, was married to Vidhur Goyal on Nov. 18 in a traditional Hindu ceremony at the Jai Mahal Palace in Jaipur, India, she told Fox News Digital.
After the celebrations wrapped, her makeup artist, Bianca Louzado, shared a video on Instagram of Roger’s family and friends reacting to the “unveiling” of their wedding look.
In another video Louzado posted to Instagram, Roger’s parents see her in her wedding dress for the first time.
This additional video has garnered 5.1 million views.
The reaction to their wedding “was surreal,” Rogers said.
However, behind the scenes of her picture-perfect moments, she’s worked hard to overcome some obstacles, she said.
“Planning an Indian wedding when my in-laws didn’t speak English and we couldn’t communicate much was a big challenge, but it was also the best thing of all,” she said.
“I learned so much about my husband’s family and culture and really embraced it all.”
That work “has paid off in the best possible way,” she said, adding that she’s “so lucky that all of my friends and family and all of his friends and family have been such a good match.”
Her father in particular couldn’t hide his delight at seeing his daughter fully dressed up, as the viral video shows.
“If your American family sees you as an Indian bride,” Louzado commented on the video.
“What a beautiful moment, Hannah Rogers. Your family and you are love,” the makeup artist added.
How about going viral in a foreign country?
Rogers said she was thrilled.
“I feel so loved and I’m just amazed at how popular this video has become,” she said.
Rogers wore a lehenga, a two-piece outfit consisting of a cropped blouse and a long skirt that’s usually worn with a long scarf called a dupatta, Indian clothing-rental website Borrow the Bazaar says.
Many Indian brides wear red to their weddings, as red is symbolic in India as the color of passion, prosperity and new beginnings, says wedding website Brides.com.
In India, the color white is often associated with funerals, so it is not usually worn at weddings.
