One of the things I love about this job is how many cultures I get to peek into. These days, I often know the details of Jewish and Hindu wedding ceremonies better than the couples getting married do. And I especially love interacting with cultures I haven’t had much experience with, from Basque to Trinidadian and so on.
But none of it prepared me for the big, fat awesomeness of an Albanian wedding.
Belly dancers? Rituals that surely break all sorts of fire codes? I like it.
(And there’s even another Albanian wedding soon to follow).
