Two of the CMRCA family got married last week. Phi and Pum finally decided to make it official. The ceremony was in the classic Lanna style, with lots of chanting monks. It was my first traditional wedding, but luckily the table of farang I got stationed with were old pros. The monks chant for quite awhile and during the whole chant everyone is expected to "why" (think praying hands). After the ceremony the couple is seated and their wrists are tied together with white string (Buddhist style), after which everyone pays their respects and ties white strings onto the couples arms. Below are a few pictures from the wedding.
