For whatever reason, I must have been having issues with my camera today because several of my photos are not much more than a blur. Thankfully, the bride and groom did not hire me to take pictures of their special day! Here's some of the ones I didn't mess up too badly. Enjoy!

With the bride's grandparents.

With the groom's parents.

The bride's and groom's table.

The bride's dad.

Ali and Gamal, in true Egyptian style bang the drums that announce the arrival of the bride and groom. In Egypt, this part happens when the wedding party escorts the bride from her parents' home to her new home with her husband. They also have little girls carrying candles in the front of the drummers, but we couldn't have candles because of the fire hazard.

The bride and groom greet their guests before taking their places at the head table.

Sorry for the fuzziness, but this is the best shot I got of the bride and groom at their table!

The delicious wedding cake.

Our table. The lamp that served as the centerpiece was a hit with all the guests, and nearly everyone scrambled to get one to take home. The favors are green and white M&Ms that were specially printed with the names of the bride and groom and the wedding date. They were popular, too. Who doesn't like M&Ms?

Let them eat cake!

All in all, it was a wonderful day for all of us. There weren't any major wedding disasters, the guests were fed well, the hall was filled with laughter and conversation for the duration. Congrats to the bride and groom, and may their lives be filled with as much joy and happiness as they shared on this day.
