dsc02522So the wedding ceremony is over, but that is just only the beginning of this wonderful event.

On the way from the church to the reception, something happened that I was not prepared for.  We are driving along in the caravan of vehicles honking horns and all that noise making activity, when all of a sudden everyone stops. I am in the vehicle behind the bride and the groom so I get to see what is happening. Someone has stepped into the middle of the road and stopped the caravan. A table is carried into the road and places are set for two along with a bottle of vodka and shot glasses. The new couple exits their vehicle and take their places at the table. They are served a drink of vodka and something quick to eat. The couple returns to their vehicle and the table is removed. As the caravan pulls away, those that stopped the couple wave goodbye and send their good wishes to the new couple. This scenerio repeats itself many times before FINALLY arriving at the place where the reception will be held.

We arrive at the reception and the couple is greeted from a member of the staff with a loaf of bread. The bread symblizes the beginning of their new life and wishes that they may never go hungry.
