Big Fat Mongolian Wedding

Last weekend Randy & I were privileged to attend our 4th Mongolian wedding ceremony. It was actually a 5 p.m. reception and not the actual wedding ceremony, which is usually somewhat private. This was for a Wagner Asia employee, Gerry (short for Gerlt-Od). We were 2 of 6 foreigners in a room of about 200. Anyway, it was a lot of fun! Weddings are weddings wherever you go: 2 families blending, relatives who have had too much to drink and want to sing, exhausted brides, etc. However, the groom made calls to all his guests the next day thanking them for coming!!

A few of the pics show Wagner Asia's big boss, John Karlsen, presenting a wedding gift on behalf of Wagner. Oh! See my first attempt at inserting a video--"The Wedding Singer"! Just ignore the pic that says "movie" and keep scrolling (just couldn't figure out how to delete the other picture :/
