My name is Danait Tilahun and I am Ethiopian. We met at Ethiopian new year celebration on September 11 2009 two years after, I moved to the United States. He proposed to me at church.  On the morning of my wedding I remember having mixed feelings like I was very excited to start the new chapter of my life and also sad to be leaving my parents house were unimaginable. Everything about that day was a huge blur for me as it went by so fast. My girls were amazing and stood by my side.  My dress fit me like a glove and my colors came out perfectly. When designing my reception I was going for classy with a hint of vintage. Our first dance was to Yehiwote Hiwote by artist Tilahun Gessesse. The lyrics of the song explains how I exactly feel about my husband.

For our Melse I wanted it to be traditional and I also really wanted a wheat bouquet. I picked this kemis because it was traditional in pattern with a modern cut. My favorite part of the day was the buna ceremony and my favorite song that was played was Mesikaley by Anbesa Tekle. One piece of advice I would give to current brides is that tradition is tradition for a reason and for us to maintain our culture we need make sure it is done properly. Good Luck!
