Paul and Ana's Wedding

Paul and Ana, both on staff with us here in Galati, were married last Saturday. It was fun to attend a Romanian wedding for the first time. All the kids from the center were invited so that was really fun, too. They all came dressed up. I can't show their pictures here, but one guy wanted me to take a picture of his 'pumas' which I was happy to do and as you can see, he was especially dapper. He wore a plum colored wool suit (complete with vest!) and his soccer shoes. Seriously, I love that kid. Another guy wore a BRIGHT BLUE jacket with the collar turned up. I wish I could show you how beautiful they all were...they sang to the couple, ate, laughed, and I thought: the marriage feast of the Bride of Christ will be like this. Can't wait...

Also, we were served 3 courses of food (an appetizer of sorts, fish, and then chicken). It all was very yummmy.(I took a picture of the basket of fruit that was on each table...it just made me smile). I guess at most weddings the celebration goes late into the night with dancing and wine. However, this wedding was at the church and therefore sans dancing and wine and therefore ended at 1am rather than 7am.

It was lots of fun and we wish Paul and Ana loads and loads of joy.

Wow--you both look so nice! Brynne walked up to the computer when I was looking at this and said, "Momma!" and I said, "No, BEPO!" "Oh, BEPO!" I love Bela's suit! Is he wearing that for the civil ceremony? Are you thinking of incorporating any of the Romanian traditions in the Cali wedding???
