This the bride being carried in for the processional
One of our friends was asked to be the ceremonial massive-umbrella-holder. Good job Josh.
There were many magical and confusing moments: This is the point of the service when two men dressed like nurses threw a pair of live chickens into the air like they were doves...We watched quizzically as they rapidly succumbed to the bonds of gravity. Then apparently the custom is to chase and catch the chickens. There was no sacrifice of the chickens after said catching, though there were speculations among the foreigners. We're not entirely clear on the meaning and symbolism of this tradition.
We have a winner!
