muslim wedding

never been to a muslim wedding before... our muslim friend got married recently and he allowed me to take photos... according to him the ceremony usually takes days (i mean there are various meetings and discussions before the actual day)...

we were able to attend only a portion of the whole ceremony....

the day started with the bride and groom in their respective houses. the groom went to the bride's place through this car, followed by his family and friends...

and of course muslim food was served for lunch. they usually serve it this way (or sometimes in a big "bilao"). the one in the middle is called "chula itum", even non-muslims in zamboanga love this dish. it's actually good.

even the dessert served were traditional muslim as well. mostly made of flour and sugar. the orange one was with Royal True Orange hence the color.
