Ethan+Anaar Wedding | Day 2 | Catskills, NY

This wedding had so many interesting aspects, that it is impossible to properly show in the scope of the blog post.

The ceremony  took place at Anaar’s parents country home, followed by a reception under a huge, colorful, beautifully decorated tent. Ethan and Anaar, with an assistance of their friends, created an absolutely amazing ceremony that combined aspects from all different spiritual traditions that are important to them.  The ceremony consisted of seven offerings that friends and family made in form of a prayer, poetry or dance and the couple would circle the fire after every offering.   The seventh and last offering was followed by a joint circle around the fire of the entire wedding community and after this the couple led everyone to the party tent, decorated by all, in a procession for an incredible dinner, dancing and fireworks.  All in all, this was a magical weekend filled with love, respect, honor and friendship.
