Dalisa and Kamal got ready in rooms at the Park Villa Apartments. It was a brisk November day and cloudy but the rain had held off all day. While the girls got ready we got some portraits of the men, the father of the bride wore his dress blues. Once the men were on their way to the church we got some portraits of the bridesmaids.
The ceremony was traditional and the father and mother of the bride read a poem, they poured sand into a vase after the grooms aunt and mother. At the end of the ceremony they jumped over a broom stick and danced down the aisle.
With little time to spare for photos because of the early setting sun in the time of year we had to opt out of the couples wedding portraits and instead the couple and bridal party took a bus 40 minutes away to visit the mother of the groom in the nursing home. To say it was emotional and heartwarming would be an understatement.
Back at the venue guests enjoyed Hors d’oeuvre. When they arrived back they danced in for their entrances, gave speeches and did their first dance. The groom danced with his aunt as his mother was in the nursing home. Dalisa changed into a jumpsuit and they danced all night including a train that including most of the guests!
