Pictures from the Sanga wedding in July! Pretty bride, happy older brother, and lots of smiling between the new couple.
During this wedding, I realized that I like being a bridesmaid. I like standing back and observing the rituals/traditions, the ceremony, and the family while still being able to be part of the inner wedding circle. I get to see the in's and out's. When I was a bride, I barely noticed anything since I was too busy with everything. When I'm a guest, I get to watch the ceremony and participate in the reception. But as part of the wedding party, I get to see the bride put on her gown, I get to see her mom and sister get teary-eyed, I get to help her put on her gown, etc. It's all these precious little moments that I get to witness. It's wonderful and different.
I'll stop rambling now. Here are a few pictures:
