Oh my goodness… so I haven’t finished going through the pics.. .but WHAT an amazing day. I love Macedonian weddings… it was the longest day full of tradition after tradition… just a quick recap:
-Family & Friends of the Bride meet at her house for quality time before the BIG EVENT
-The groom arrives with his family, crazy friends … and a BAND singing and screaming all the way down the street… at which point they LITERALLY broke the door of the Brides bedroom as her brothers “bargain” with him for $$ .. then a big party breaks out (they aren’t even married yet)
-Then we all parade to the courthouse (which is an experience in and of itself).. where they are married in the eyes of the law by a man with the craziest mustache I’ve ever seen and a cigarette hanging out of his mouth…
-Then outside the GORGEOUS Orthodox church over 130 guests wait while the couple and her father enters the church– they exchange rings, crowns, and go for a “journey”…
-Next the reception which went long into the night… I mean morning.. I didn’t leave till well after 2am.. these Macedonians know how to throw a party… the reception was chocked full of tradition after tradition… I can’t even go into all of…
I’ll post more pics later of course… but here are just a few of the beautiful happy couple.. pics of the crazy lovely traditions will be posted soon.. don’t worry.. you can’t miss the 20 men breaking down the door!!
