Cambodian Ceremony


Two years ago today, D and I were given a traditional Cambodian blessing.

Three lovely Cambodian Ming's did my make-up and helped me get dressed three times throughout the ceremony. I've never been that pampered before.


A monk chanted a blessing in Cambodian while our family and friends tied strings of blessings around our wrists. It didn't even matter that I couldn't understand a word the monk was saying, it was really special to experience a piece of D's culture with him.

I have to agree with everyone that you looked absolutely stunning in these photos- WOW!!!! What an amazing ceremony. I can't believe I did not know that you and Deboro did this- it looked SO cool. On that note, Happy Anniversary! You and Deboro make the most beatiful couple and compliment each other so well (and you now are awesome parents to the cutest little girl). Congrats!!!

Happy Anniversary! I always remember yours because it's exactly a week after mine. I didn't know you two had a Cambodian ceremony too. I think it's awesome.

Um, wow. Thanks for all your nice comments. Way to make a girl feel like a million bucks.
These are all the pics we have. But I guess after Danielle asked for more pics, D's mom made it her personal mission to get us all the pictures from everyone there that day so thanks for asking because I would like to see them too.
