Washington, DC Ethiopian Engagement Party: Warm greetings and beautiful attire.

A few years back I photographed an engagement party for a wonderful Ethiopian couple.  It was one of the most fun parties I have worked.  I still recall the warm greetings and beautiful attire that the women wore.  There were interesting customs and great food in addition.
