rabiaseye Oh, and you can't forget the serious negotiations over the ransom for the groom's shoes! The bride's sister (center) had one of the shoes. I had the other for a while before handing it off to a friend.

In South Asian weddings, there's a tradition where the one of the bride's sisters, cousins, or friends steal the groom's shoes. They hold them for ransom before allowing the groom to leave and take his bride with him. My theory is that it came about as a ploy to keep the bride with her loved ones a little longer and delay her departure.

rabiaseye Most eyes are on the bride as she comes down the aisle, but the groom's anticipation is the true feeling of the moment -- on the precipice of a new future together. May that future be filled with love, laughs, and togetherness. #malik2syed 5d

rabiaseye One of the most beautiful weddings I've been to, and that's not counting the bride and groom! Orchids galore, candles aplenty, and clear chiavari chairs. Loved the donut bar, and the sticker on the bag cracked me up. #malik2syed 5d
