Water Buffalo Wedding Delivery

Normally, a bride walks down the aisle with her father. That is the grand entrance. I got one that will top that. How about a water buffalo ridden by a seaman, dragging a bamboo cart with the bride in the carriage?

Does that qualify as a grand entrance? I think so.

When I arrived at the house the day before, I noticed the bamboo cart in the backyard. My first reaction was curiosity. Why was it there?

The decorators explained that a water buffalo (caribou) would drag it to the wedding with the bride and groom in it. There is no way this could be true. It sounded like a story I would tell a gullible person. By the way, did you know that the word “gullible” is not in the dictionary?

I had to see it to believe it.

They weren’t lying. They really used it as the bride delivery system. Think FedEx meets farming meets professional photographers. Great combination.

Luckily, I wasn’t the only one shocked to see this. Filipinos from other islands were just as surprised as I was to see this one animal parade.

I wonder what the water buffalo was thinking with so many people taking photos of him? Honestly, he was probably happy that he wasn’t part of the butchering for the reception.
