Extravagant, luxurious and truly incredible are three words that can be used to describe Brian Kurilla and Kimya Gharib’s wedding at the Omni Shoreham in Washington, D.C., which brought together more than 400 family and friends last May. The exotic and rich colors, combined with flawless décor and stunning accents provided by Philippa Tarrant set the backdrop for a perfect evening.
Guests Gaurav and Karima’s wedding have never quite experienced anything like. As honored guests of the couple, that happen to have cameras, photographers Robert and Laura JUST returned from New Delhi, India where they spent a whirlwind week shooting this wedding and doing a little sightseeing as well. India took their breath away. There was such a surreal contrast between the royal opulence of this wedding vs. the extreme poverty and trash that litters the rest of the country…..but to be able to experience both sides of India is what made the trip so fantastic.

The young women who run threegirlsandamic.com, an Internet radio program, invited me to be a guest on their program about the rise of atheism among their generation of students.

More than 4,000 years ago, there were two large tribes and many smaller tribes in China. The tribes had animals as emblems. The two large tribes unified and chose the dragon as their symbol. In fact, the Han Chinese still call themselves the descendants of the Dragon.
In Chinese astrology the dragon was seen as a powerful almighty king because it was made up of different parts of animals such as a tiger, fish, snake and an eagle.
