This Bay Area wedding was full of incredible emotion. The groom’s sister was wrapping her speech. Both the groom and his sister have worn these matching mala bead strands (prayer beads) on their wrists for years—they never take them off. His sister’s speech spoke to the significance of the beads in their lives and touched on what it means for her and how it connects them. She ended the speech describing how much the beads serve a meaningful role in her life, and concluded with: “… and now, Nicole, they’re yours.”
