Well I had my first wedding on Sept 11th for a while (for obvious reasons) this year.

A lovely two culture couple which meant the guests got to experience and learn the different ways weddings are celebrated.   My day started with an Indian Wedding Ceremony at the Hyatt HB at 10am in the morning, which was preceded by the grooms arrival on a white horse and the milni which followed.  Prior to that it had started very early at a house the groom’s family was at close to the hotel, thank goodness the bride and I did not have to be there for that too.  This ceremony was followed by a very casual Indian buffet lunch.  Then the bride headed to the groom’s house for another ceremony, while everyone else had some down time.  I meanwhile headed off to the Nixon Library where we were now going to do a christian style wedding ceremony and american style dinner/dance with dj until midnight.  Guests were bussed to and from the Hyatt, as most of them were in house.

Here are some pics to show the very different celebrations that the same 200 guests got to enjoy.

Thanks to their photographer  Edna of Square Eye                 for sharing these photos with us.
