Turkish wedding Day 2 - Saturday, June 25th

This was the wedding day. It is more like a wedding you would see in the states. The grooms family came to pick up the bride from her families home. A tradition that happened both days is that family from the bride's side would block the grooms family with their cars, or some of the brides family sat on the dowry chest. Any time that would happen, the grooms father would have to pay them a tip to get out of the way... interesting.

It was a huge event. It was on the beach. There was live music, dancing, drinking, eating... really nice. The food was excellent. It was a big party. There was probably 3+ hundred people!! Huge.
