A Skansonia Wedding in Seattle with Himalayan Sherpa Traditions

Few things excite us and inspire us the way that cultural weddings do.  New {to us} traditions, ceremonies, and experiences are what we live for so when we met Nima and Brian and heard about their wedding that would be rich in Himalayan Sherpa traditions, we were beyond thrilled.  In mid-March, Nima and Brian gathered with friends and family on the MV Skansonia Ferry on a date picked for them by Nima’s grandfather in Tibet.  He’d prayed on the date, never been to Seattle, and surely enough, it was one of those perfect clear and sunny Spring days.

The whole day was full of love and tradition.  The one that really made it for Loren and me was the Khata ceremony in which the friends and family of the bride and groom get to approach the couple during the ceremony {and right after} and lay a beautiful silk scarf around them and wish them well.  Nima and Brian were absolutely laden with scarves and it was so much fun to see the guests get to participate rather than view from a distance.  A great alternative to the receiving line, too ;)
