It’s difficult to describe the excitement, chaos, joy and beauty of a barat in words.. for those who are not familiar, a barat is a groom’s wedding procession. Baj looked positively regal riding his horse down Market Street. A large crowd of family, friends, and random onlookers swelled around him as music and a drum beat filled the air. Meanwhile, Ashley was adorning herself for the traditional Sikh wedding ceremony that was soon to begin! Fast forward a few hours – time for a Christian wedding ceremony to represent Ashley’s beliefs and traditions. These two just smiled at each other. By the time the reception rolled around, everyone was more than ready to dance, laugh, eat, and enjoy themselves. What a day – and what a joy to capture!
