Rohan Murty, son of NR Narayana Murthy and Sudha Murty, married Aparna Krishnan in a private ceremony in Bengaluru on Monday. The couple decided to go for an intimate setting instead of a big wedding and took their wedding vows surrounded by family and friends.

The wedding was followed by a reception at the same hotel venue in the city.

While Rohan wore a simple kurta and black pants, Aparna was dressed in an elegant white lehenga with floral embroidery for the reception.

The couple, who met through common friends, knew each other for three years before they decided to take the big step.
