Beautiful photograph. Thank you. I wish you would write about the event and tradition behind it.
Congrats to the happy couple. Loving the bright colors :-)
Congratulations to him and his partner!
Judith - the event was more beautiful than can be described. My brother went all out, giving his wife a 40th b-day party and then (by surprise!), turning it into a renewal of vows, complete with rings and photographs and a wedding cake. There is no tradition behind it. He's the first in our family to do such a thing. When he went looking for an Imam to do the ceremony, we found out we can't renew vows in Islam because the marriage is essentially a contract that has to be broken before being renewed. Not wanting a divorce (smile), he went with a Christian cleric. She did great and, I think, enjoyed the ceremony a great deal herself.
Thanks, Agnes. Although with all your trips to the east and other places around the world, I know you've seen these colors and styles before. BTW, you looked great (as usual) in your latest blog post.
Yes, Rama, my brother's wife is a lucky gal! And although this was a renewal of vows conducted by a Christian cleric for a Muslim couple who are both Americans, I think you can clearly see the Indian influence in our clothes and decorations.
What a wonderful wonderful surprise. I'm so happy to know that romance isn't dead :-)
I agree, Sarah. Romance is as alive as we make it.
What a lovely photo of a lovely couple. Congratulations to all.
Thanks, Ann. Well, at least one half of the couple is lovely....the one with the long, brown hair :)
That's a beautiful photo. All the best to the happy couple.
Lynda - you're too kind! Hope all goes well with your jury duty.
What a happy, beautiful couple. Contests to them both!
Dr. Kang - you're too kind! Great to hear from you.
Congrats to them. And that's a great photo!
Thanks, Medeia. Yes, the ceremony was a mix between Christian, Islamic, Indian and American traditions. Lots of fun!
