The Friday before, I attended the wedding of one of Chris' students from the English class he teaches at the Ministry of Planning with our friend and Khmer tutor, Thany. She looked gorgeous in her traditional wedding shirt and sampot- that yellow made me wish I hadn't stuck with boring white when I made my shirt 18 months ago!
Khmer weddings typically happen at home (infographic comparing weddings coming soon!), and this was no exception. Except the groom's home is HUGE and clearly quite new. Not exactly your typical wooden house, it is stone and stucco. The beautiful three level home's yard served as a seating area for guests.
