Summer Bride in Nazareth

Summer is the wedding season in the Middle East. Many people leave home and visit their family during the summer vacation. They attend family events such as graduation, engagement and wedding. The happiness will be doubled with the pleasure of family gathering.

When I visited the church in Nazareth, the preparation for wedding was going on. The decoration with white shawls and flowers were so beautiful that they let me imagine a happy face of the bride. After a while, uproar of the horns began to sound, which bring the new couple to be born in this happy day.
