TRADITIONAL WEDDING SHEILA & JAMIL WEDDING DAY



The time they both spent abroad during their college years in Overseas, growing up in the midst of a modernized western culture, did not make Sheila & Jamil forget where they came from. Their union was celebrated in a traditional Makasar wedding ceremony. And there is nothing like culture that brings sentimental feelings in such a grand celebration.

Let me tell you a little about Sheila’s wedding attire. The dress she is wearing is a traditional Makasar costume. Weddings are supposed to be about them. About the happy couple. About their decision. About their love. And while dressing up properly is a sign of respect to the bride, the groom and their entire family, when they have invited you to join them in this joyous occasion, it would be much more meaningful if you thought about the couple, brought your heart, effortlessly, and say a little prayer for their well being on their new journey together.
In the midst of all the modern-day wedding celebrations I shoot, the freshness of Jamil and Sheila's traditional wedding celebration still plays so vividly in my memories.
