Neighborhood wedding

On Sunday, 8 February, the beautiful daughter of the guy who delivers our milk married the handsome young man who lives across the creek from us.The pink house is the groom's house, buzzing with activity before the wedding.

(Turns out the wedding was early that morning, so we attended the reception. I didn't want to go without my friends and didn't realize I was missing the wedding.)
The church
(Although it was a Hindu wedding, it was held at this Christian church, probably because of its facilities.)

Dang! You've been a busy girl! That's a lot of posts! It was neat to see the pix of the wedding festivities. Do people dance at receptions like here?
