Amazing wedding ceremony … weaving together Indian and Ukrainian traditions into a rich, colorful, multi-cultural ceremony. The Bride was glowing in her traditional Sari, as she and her handsome Groom stood on the Ukrainian ‘Rushnyk’ a ceremonial cloth that is a symbol of blessings bestowed on the couple from above. It is decorated with symbols of wealth, joy, and fertility. The ceremony gamf.net continued with Hindu traditions, including both sets of parents offering their blessings in the form of water poured onto the palms of the couple, symbolizing the continuity of life, honoring their ancestors, and passing the family heritage on to the next generation. The couple exchanged garlands, and the Groom presented a sacred necklace to the Bride, which she will wear all her life. After exchanging their Vows, the couple shared a special Ukrainian bread, to assure happiness, prosperity, and wealth in their lives together. We wish Sami and Sergey all the happiness in the world!
