I was only at Charles & Oksana’s wedding at their new home for a few hours, but in that time, I was blessed to witness a lot of love, tradition, and good times shared with those closest to them. Oksana’s Ukrainian heritage was woven into the festivities, from the beautifully embroidered rushnyk that they stood on during the ceremony to the korovai bread that they shared and later tore apart during the dinner, which was served by Great Cooks and Company. Their guests came from all over the world, and the best man hilariously used this blending of cultures as an excuse for the guests to toast (and drink to) the couple in many different languages. “Dyakuju” to Kiralee of EyeMAX Makeup and photographer Angela Talley for the referral!
