NAMES: McCulloch/Korytniak
WEDDING DATE: September 2, 2001
LOCATION: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
COMMENTS: This is to be a Scottish wedding, complete with the kilts, and gala that goes with the hagis. It is not the usual wedding, as many companies have been surprised by our choice of dress and lack of formality. The union of Scot and Slavic should not come as a surprise to many, but the decsion to go as traditional as possible has caught some people off guard. I’m quite pleased. Turning back to your roots has been hard in finding the proper, or as close as possible proper clothing, etc., but has been fun! The place of repection and marriage is Scandinavian, which is another element of the union. Should be interesting!!!
