New Year’s Eve Wedding

June is a month for weddings…..at least that is what everyone is saying.  Well, since I am running behind in my wedding posts, I am taking this opportunity to create a short post about a New Year’s Eve wedding I had a pleasure of attending.

I have attended a Christmas season wedding before, but this was my first time at a New Year’s Eve wedding.

It actually was a lot of fun, because until midnight we all were enjoying a typical wedding atmosphere, but as the clock struck midnight the party switched to a New Year celebration.

Ukrainian Wedding – Traditions And Lots More

This was a very traditional Ukrainian wedding, with the Starosty (Elders…Godparents carrying the icons), the Korovai – a Symbolic Ukrainian Wedding Bread, Greeting Bread with salt and wine, lots of embroidered runners (rushnyky), special Icons for the Newlyweds, the Wedding Cake of course, and lots…lots…lots…of food at the Cocktail Hour and at midnight at the Venetian Hour.

This time I will even share pictures of the dress of the Bride, the Bride’s Maids and the Starostyna (Godmother carrying the Icon).

Apricot Sheet Cake – Recipe

Apricot Cake is a must on my dessert table, especially when my sons are visiting for the holidays. Even though they like most of my baked goods, this one is their favorite, because it is not readily found in bakeries or restaurants. A friend of mine, who is not a big fan of apricots, gave this cake her vote.
