Every little girl dreams of being a fairy tale princess and having the perfect wedding. In an Egyptian wedding, the bride and the groom both get that chance to feel like royalty. They spend the day being treated like a king and queen, complete with crowns and the occasional throne.
On May 29th, Mary and Peter dove headfirst into this tradition. Mary wore a crown fit for a queen and a dress made for royalty. She looked every bit the part and her groom thought so, too. It was all smiles and giggles as the two did their First Looks. Peter stood awaiting his bride at the bottom of a winding staircase. Is there a more appropriate entrance for a queen than to descend a staircase to her future king?
With First Looks finished, it was off to the ceremony. The dashing couple strode down the aisle and approached the altar together. During the ceremony, the couple was draped with their traditional robes as they sat upon their thrones for all to see.
The color purple has always been associated with royalty. Stepping into the reception hall, the guests were treated to a spectacle awash in the color purple, from the up-lights on the wall, to the napkins on the table. With everyone seated, dinner began with the Blessing of the Food. An amazing four-tier cake followed, providing plenty of dessert to go around. As the bride and groom danced the night away, it was clear that fairy tales do come true.
