Groom's Sword

Groom's Sword

This is my friend Stephen, at his wedding. He married my friend Supreet, who is Punajbi. In Punjabi culture, men are seen as protectors. They traditionally carry swords as a symbol of being able to protect their loved ones, especially the women in their lives. The groom sits waiting for his bride to enter the temple with his sword in hand.
