We made a day trip down South to attend a wedding solemnization yesterday.
It was a very well planned and beautiful ceremony.
The bride is one year younger than me.
She looks beautiful and very happy..now who wouldn’t, right?
Everyone seemed to be in a cheerful mood especially when an incident took place during the akad nikah. The father of the bride was so nervous that he could not recite his part and they offered him a glass of water to calm him down, much to the amusement of the guests. The groom was calm and he just starred at his future father-in-law who was so nervous. When it all ended, the father’s bride received a big pat on the back from relatives and friends for a job well done..hahaha
(now, who is actually getting married here?)
And when ‘Adat Lafaz Sakinah’ started, everybody was quite. The mother of the bride started reading the script given to her, reciting her willingness to let her daughter go. All eyes went watery including my mom’s. I guess, when it comes to a daughter’s wedding, the mother will be the most excited and busiest making all the preparations, she will be the happiest to see her daughter’s big day but at the same time it is the saddest moment to let the daughter go.
A very beautiful akad nikah,
too bad we could not make it to their wedding reception next year.
I am not short, okey?
It was just that my 185cm tall little brother was standing at a higher step of the stairs!
