When is a better time to celebrate your unity than the nature’s birthday, Spring!
We knew it was a young love when they cried at the first look! Their grand entrance was accompanied by the traditional Zaffe dancing and blowing Confetti to the ceiling. Oh, so magical like a Cinderella story… Zaffa, or wedding march, is a musical procession of bendir drums, bagpipes, horns, belly dancers and men carrying flaming swords. And that was not all, then they lifted the bride and groom on the chairs while guests making a circle around them and dancing.
The bride and groom laughed with their attendants around a floating dessert bar, hanging from the high ceiling with blue ribbons. The ceremony and reception took place at the Sheraton Hotel in Tysons, Virginia.
