Cambodian traditional weddings generally last 2 days, half a day on friday, and the whole day Saturday. We were out for a total of 19 hours, yes, that's 19, no typo there.
Traditional cambodian weddings are beautiful, there is nothing more vibrant, and colorful. Asian weddings are usually long ceremonies, very long, but the one thing I respect and love, is how patient Joe was, even though a lot of it was unfamiliar to him, he always had a smile on his face. Plus it's not always comfortable to sit there with your legs crossed for hours on end.
The one thing I admire most about Vicky, is her love for her parents, and the one thing they've always wanted from her, a traditional khmer wedding, and she gave them just that.
This video is only a small tip of the ice berg of the full length feature film, that runs a little shy of 5 hours long, that's 2 DVD's.
Watch this documentary style highlight video, with scenes from the hair cutting ceremony, cleansing ceremony, presentation of dowry, and a whole lot more! Enjoy!
