Prom pagne shot!
Cameroonians place a high standard on the shoes that you wear and I accidently walked out of my house in my tall flip flops. The boys saw my shoes and asked if I wanted to change – how embarrassing! On came the heels.
Ibrahim and me waiting for the ceremony to start
The wedding ceremony was considered to be a mix of modern and traditional. Not wanting to cause too much attention to myself (being American and all), Ibrahim took my camera and took the following photos:
Delicious wedding food!
I think my favorite part was at the end. It’s Cameroonian culture to start things late and things get going slowly, but man, everything after the ceremony was a blur! Kids ran around pulling chairs to clean up and EVERYBODY pushed themselves into pictures with the bride and groom – it was hilarious! Great for the bride and groom and though as I’m sure that they felt like celebrities! Even the photographer would take a picture of us, give the camera to someone else and then jump in the picture too – good night!
