Life after the Taliban's Fall

Wedding Culture in Afghanistan

Wedding Culture in Afghanistan

Female guests of an engagement party dance as young Afghan wedding cameramen videotape the event in a grand ballroom at Safi Landmark Hotel, Kabul, Afghanistan on Friday, Aug 3, 2007. Wedding Industry is a growing business in Afghanistan, especially in the capital city, and the palm tree lights illuminate the buildings at night in this energy-hungry city. Dancing and photographing in the wedding parties were banned during the Taliban. Six years after the Taliban fell, Afghans are now free to dance to the music; however, the growing power of the Taliban worries many Afghans who have enjoyed the freedom in the past six years.
