Te + Alex's Wedding, Part I: Buddhist Ceremony

[I did a little research on Cambodian weddings on the web. This is what I learned...] A Cambodian wedding traditionally consists of three days of ceremonies and celebrations. The three days represent the three jewels of Buddhism: Buddha, Sangha (brotherhood of monks), and Dhamma (teachings of Buddha). Modern Cambodian weddings will often condense these ceremonies into one day. The first day is set aside for blessings from the Buddhist monks for the couple and their family.

Doesn't Alex look like royalty with the flashy gold medallion and blue sash? Te looked beautiful, as usual. :)
