HUB Heritage Hall was decorated with vibrant shades of pink, orange and red in anticipation of a Malaysian wedding Saturday night.

The Penn State Malaysian Society had a cultural festival in the style of a traditional Malaysian wedding to showcase various aspects of the Malaysian culture, said Rafiq Razali, emcee for the night.

As the audience ate egg rolls and other native Malaysian foods, the lights dimmed and a wedding procession entered.

Four boys loudly beat drums called kompang, as the bride and groom walked to the stage.

The bride and groom were elaborately dressed in kebaya clothing, traditional wedding attire.

“Actual Malay weddings are much more elaborate than this one will be,” Farah Adeli (freshman-biotechnology) said.
