On Saturday Kathy and I attended a wedding. The wedding was beautiful, as weddings are, but what was important for us was the fact that we got to see family members we haven’t seen in over a year and a half.
To put things in perspective, the bride is the daughter of the cousin of our niece-in-law’s father. In African tradition, that makes us all family and we couldn’t be more honored.
This post is mostly pictures taking you through the ceremony.
Let’s start with the groom and some groomsmen waiting at the front of the church. The one in the middle is our nephew, Shad.
The mothers of the bride and groom each light a candle representing their family. Bride’s mother is on the left.
The matron of honor leads in the ringbearer and flower girl.
Here comes the bride on her father’s arm.
The bride says her vows.
The groom repeats his vows.
Two flames become one.
Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Moreno. Congratulations Luyando and Angelo.
Now, off to the reception. What a party that was. Will save that for next week.
