Ukrainian-Greek Wedding – Tradition and Culture

I had the pleasure of attending three weddings this year, and will share some of the special traditions and pictures from each of these weddings.
This wedding was very special to us, since the daughter of our long time friend was getting married, and also because the wedding ceremony was taking place in the same church as the filming of the, the ever so popular movie, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”.

Ukrainian Wedding – Korovai, Greeting Bread, and Wedding Cake

June is a very popular month for weddings, at least in the United States. I have attended many weddings with various traditions, but if you ever attended a Ukrainian wedding, you can attest to the fact that there is lots of food, endless desserts, special breads (Greeting Bread and Korovai) in addition to the Wedding Cake, and lots of dancing, to most likely lots of very fast beats of a Ukrainian live band.
