Sunday morning, and it’s time for the final preparations before the ceremonial bridal procession caps off the wedding festivities. Eren and his best man, Erdahl, pose on the dirt road in front of Eren’s family’s house, which also houses the bridal suite for Sunday night. The Turkish flag flies over the house to announce a day of celebration, and Eren stands out himself with the groom’s traditional red sash. The bridal car (my 1997 Hyundai, pressed into service as the most prestigious vehicle available), has been the subject of some valiant attempts to keep it clean and shiny in the dusty streets, and now it fits the theme well with a license plate tag that reads, “We’re getting married!”
