Last September, we had the joy of using a stunning fall day with Sandra and Sal at the Belmont Country Club in Ashburn, Virginia. Sandra is from Spain and Sal is Afghani. This really was their second wedding function and gathering — they had a conventional Catholic wedding in Spain prior that hot time of year. However, there was nothing second about this festival as it was overwhelming. This was my first Afghani wedding and I need to say I was appropriately awed. So much color, vitality, and light. What’s more the moving, so much moving. All around, a superb night.
Partly through the gathering, Sandra, Sal, and a hefty portion of their visitors transformed from the customary Afghani clothing into conventional Western dark tie.
