Anna and Brad had two weddings in one day! They began by getting married in the same church Brad's parents were wed in, and rounded out the evening with a traditional Laotian ceremony. The festivities included a customized newspaper wedding announcement, a Laotian string ceremony known as baci, and so much delicious-looking food (look at those fruit kebabs!) you could almost taste it through your screen.

LOVE these multi cultural weddings with OBB could gather more about the traditions behind the ‘non-western’ weddings for the completely ignorant like me! why the sashes? what’s up with the gorgeous silver whatchamajigs? are the big silver bowls with silk flower particularly significant? I need to knoooow!?
