An Armenian wedding


From Instagram
And then the wedding. Wow. What an experience... I'm grateful to the family for having in the end invited this Costarican wedding crasher to experience such a magical personal and cultural moment. The wedding took place in a beautiful green area called Aghveran that showed me how different the landscape can be in Armenia. The ceremony took place in an Orthodox Christian Armenian church in a very small village.

The priest really looked scary, I was not used to this. He had a big hat and some really long white beard.



The car was pretty sweet. That's Vahe, the buddy I am in debt for having invited me to Armenia.

As the celebration in the church ends a local band awaits the bride and groom and folks start dancing.

The father of the bride then looks out and calls for the bride and starts the dance off.

There then is a big dance on, a meet and greet and then we step to the celebration hall.
