Ornate henna, colorful saris, and two beautiful families joining together to exchange gifts, food and good wishes– what a delight it was for Kris and I to be a part of Jamila & Jibran’s engagement ceremony! This is actually my first color-only blog post and I think you will soon see why…
Their first look:
Jamila was lead in by her sisters and friends with a procession of candles and flower petals:
Their grandmothers are exchanging sweets as part of the ceremony:
Each family member circled this basket for flowers around the couple and presented them with gifts.
Jamila’s mother is giving Jibran’s brother a sweet and wishing him and his wife well.
The saris are beautiful– I could not get over the variety of colors, patterns and decoration, simply stunning, ladies!
Jibran loves the TV show “The Office”, so Jamila’s family created an Office-themed gift basket including this high-five worthy T-shirt:
“Yeah, whatever. No big deal. The hottest girl in the world loves me.” I think Jibran agrees with Michael on that one.
Jamila’s friends are located throughout the country but they met together and created a special dance for her and Jibran.
Taha’s speech was funny! You can almost almost read it for yourself through the paper ;).
I’d love to hear what you think, please feel free to leave a comment below!
