One of the highlights of 2012 was this wedding. Hus and Carly are dear friends of mine and Desmond. We met them while living in Oakland a few years back. Hus was actually the first friend we made in Oakland! He let us crash at his house after our 3-day drive from Chicago. Carly was in Des’ Teach for America Corps group. We clicked with her instantly. She has such a warm friendly soul. When you talk to Carly it’s like you’ve known her years, very down to earth.
These two hit it off pretty instantly, and decided to make it official in 2012. They had two weddings. One in Chicago and one in New York. The one in Chicago was a more traditional Muslim Indian wedding. While the one in New York leaned more towards American traditions.
