I’ve seen a ton of frightening stunts at weddings, most involving the hora, but a few weeks ago I saw one of the craziest feats at Xena and Firas’ wedding at The Sterling in Long Island. Pretty soon after the first dance, I heard the groomsmen yelling something in Arabic and all of a sudden Firas was being hurled into the air and getting an insane amount of height. I was certain that he was either going to smash against the glass ceiling or hit the floor. But his friends caught him every time and I did my best to capture one of the most insane things I’ve seen in a while. I struggled to keep the focus on Firas and his friends, but decided that their reactions were more interesting than the shock on his face. I can’t wait to see what else this year holds for me.
