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).

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”.
