From the brides...
Our sweet story started in 2011 in a small Eastern European country called Ukraine. Through professional relations as teacher-student to romantic dates in the forest, through life together in the small Ukrainian village to the long-distance relations period, our love made it to the most important point – the beginning of our family and our wedding day.
We registered our marriage in New York City in April, 2014 with a party after among friends. We gathered all of our family and friends for a big celebration on August, 30. We wanted to make this day intimate and loving, sharing our love with the people we care about.
So, a big and cozy venue--a family friend's house, white gowns and beautiful flowers, romantic music and the quiet sound of rain outside made it a perfect day for us.
To represent our multicultural union, we chose traditional Ukrainian wedding games to entertain our guests. Wine rallies, dancing competitions, limbo contest and trivia questions about the brides created a perfect atmosphere for fun and joy.
There is nothing else we could wish for. The celebration of our love was a wonderful beginning to a new chapter of our life together.
