Fitri's Wedding

June 26, 2012 28 Comments

Fitri is a best friend of mine. We’ve been together for more than 8 years, since high school. Actually, she’s been officially married since November 2011. It’s called akad nikah in Islam
In Acehnese culture, the wedding party held twice. First, at bride’s place (can be at house or building). The point is the bride’s family does all the ceremony. The groom’s relations take him to bride’s place. Usually there will be some traditional dances by children at the door when groom’s rentourage arrive. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my camera at that time. I forgot asking Fitri, hehehe
These are photos from the second party (groom’s place) last May. A late post :p
All ceremonies and steps are the same with the first one. When the distance is close, we do it by walking. Yet, this was a bit far. I was at the same car with Fitri. There were also many other people with different vehicles. We’re gonna take her to the groom’s house :)
