M.F. + D.L. ~ The Knot Is Tied

August 29, 2013

I was hav­ing nos­tal­gic feel­ings on Man­dana and Dan’s wed­ding day, as we approached Ontario Place’s Atlantis ban­quet hall. It was my grade 12 prom since I was last there and it brought back a lot of fond mem­o­ries of a great din­ner, a cou­ple of enter­tain­ing per­for­mances and of course, “danc­ing ’till it’s 1999” (hope that doesn’t date myself too far!). Let me tell you I had just as much fun on their wed­ding day.

From wit­ness­ing the van­dal­ism of “Con­grat­u­la­tions” in many dif­fer­ent lan­guages on Dan’s car, watch­ing the grooms­men earn their pass for the groom to see his bride (as per the Chi­nese tra­di­tion), cap­tur­ing tears of joy as Man­dana and Dan had their “first look”, being enthralled by the drag­ons’ dance that fol­lowed them into the recep­tion hall, lis­ten­ing to heart­felt words of each speech, expe­ri­enc­ing the Iran­ian-teas­ing-dance of the cake knife rit­u­al for the first time and of course, danc­ing like it’s 2013!!! What a great day to have start­ed off the wed­dings for this year! And I feel so hon­oured to have been a part of it. Con­grat­u­la­tions again, Man­dana and Dan!
