Wedding, Family, and Happiness

My family and I spent much of last week running around, preparing for my brother's wedding in Washington DC. We had so much fun hanging out together. My brother is generally a well organized person but this wedding challenged him to his limit. The schedule for the wedding weekend was as followed:

Friday:
basketball game with friends & family
family dinner
drinks with friends at a bar
Saturday:
hindu ceremony (the bride is indian)
vietnamese traditional ceremory (the groom is vietnamese)
civil ceremony
reception
Sunday:
brunch with family and friends

How many couples do you know have three ceremonies at their wedding? Three! There was delicious food everywhere, I ate so much that I nearly popped out of my dress. But now that the wedding is over, I can't seem to go back to daily routines of life, especially here, in California, where smoke still fills the air.

My sister, brother, and I ran errands during rush hour. The ipod kept us amused.

My brother, get this, bought his tux two days before his wedding! My sister and I helped him with the shopping. Luckily, the seamstress agreed to have his pants hemmed in one day.

Sounds like it was a full and fun trip to DC and your brother's wedding! The ceremony must have been so cool to have such diversity. Did the bride wear a traditional Indian outfit or a traditional white wedding dress?

Typical guy to buy his tux days before!

Hi Cynthia! Yes, it was a wonderful and colorful wedding. The bride had three dresses that she changed into throughout the day, 2 indian dresses (orange and red), and one vietnamese dress (red). I uploaded a few photos on flickr if you would like to see her outfits.
