big weekend

My little brother got married this weekend. We’re a big Chinese family and she has a big Indian family, so it was no small affair. It was the first family wedding I’ve attended where we were outnumbered. It started Thursday night with a Mehendi, where the ladies have henna applied by an artist.

Friday my aunt and uncle had a big party at their house, where we put children in boxes.

Saturday we had a Chinese tea ceremony (of which I have no photos). Then Sunday we had an Indian wedding. Here’s the mother of the bride tying a headpiece on my brother.

There was a lot going on.

Our older brothers cover the groom with a sheet so that the couple does not see each other until prayers have been said.

My dad got a little distracted during the ceremony. He’s a photographer and somehow smuggled his iPhone onto the stage.

Me and my dear friend from high school, who introduced the couple. He’s her cousin! So now we’re actually family. WILD.

Especially weddings in the forest.

celebrations

I love weddings. Especially weddings that involve the ocean, a bar(n), an ice cream truck, and CANDY! Oh yeah, and people whom I love…loving each other.

This is what it looks like when we try to gather for a photo.

startling juxtapositions

One minute, we were enjoying a picnic in Yosemite. The next minute, we were in the middle of a wedding.

Few images are as stressful as a bride on a cell phone with this look on her face. In the middle of a forest.
