A Border Wedding
We were invited to attend a wedding by our friend, and she is actually the bride. She and her aunt are the first few people who become our closed friends. The ceremony started on time. The groom was evidently nervous. Of course, the main event for any wedding is the bridal entrance to the hall. Everybody was enthralled with the beauty of the bride, our friend looked very beautiful in her wedding dress. It is a marriage between a Thai-Chinese and an Akha lady from Myanmar. The ceremony was held in a Chinese Baptist Church. The officiating officer was a Thai Pastor who did the ceremony in Thai translated by someone in Burmese. I guess this is the normal way wedding at the border is done.
