This past weekend, the older generation of our Kazakh friends hosted a small wedding celebration (cвадебная вечеринка) in honor of our new marriage. Here are two of my favorite pictures from the party: 1. Our lovely wedding cake, which I don’t want to cut because I like it so much. The detail is remarkable. Look closely enough and you’ll see I have eyelashes; and 2. I was surprised once again to receive an absurdly large bouquet of beautiful roses (of course, an odd number).
It was a lively celebration with too many toasts and well wishes to count!
