Our day began with a noon meal for the family and those involved in the wedding.
Nsimba was dressed in celebration garb from Africa.
We were honored that Nsimba’s second cousin (beautiful yellow head dressing) and her family from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and a friend who grew up in the same village (plaid shirt on the left) and his family from Connecticut were able to attend.
Nsimba’s parents were not able to get visas from the Congo so the entire day was video graphed and put on YouTube for his parents and siblings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMVNzNIKahA&sns=fb
The girls dressed in our motel room – Mallory (flower girl), Cora (maid of honor) and Elizabeth.
