Bruce and Dana's wedding was my first Buddhist wedding and I really loved the ceremony and what was said and conveyed during it. Dana's mother is the founder of the Zen House and conducted the ceremony.
I just love the photo above and love the story behind it even more. Bruce and Dana were showed with dried rose petals on their exit from the ceremony, but they weren't just any rose petals. These rose petals were from many bouquets that Dana's father had given to her mother throughout the years of their marriage. I just thought it was
such a special idea and gift from Dana's parents to use them.
The getting ready and the reception both took place at the Bougainvillea Hotel. I cannot say enough about this beautiful venue. It is like a garden oasis in the middle of the big city. The flowers are abundant and gardens seem to be never ending.
