DC, VA, MD Elena & Valeriu | Lynchburg Wedding
Valeriu is Moldavian and Elena is Russian. They met while helping mutual friends with their move in a new home. At first, unintentionally, Valeriu pissed off Elena by trying to complement her perfume, in Russian, but he picked the wrong word and instead of saying that her perfume smells nice he said that her perfume stinks :). Oh boy, as you might imagine she wasn’t happy, at all, and in fact Elena wanted to have nothing to do with Valeriu from that point on. However, after she found out that he had mistaken the word, Elena gave him a chance to apologize and make it up and he did :)!
They got married at this charming lodge, Rockcliff Farm Lodge, in Concord, VA. The ceremony took place outdoors and right before Elena walked down the aisle it rained ,some people say that it is a sign of good luck, and it has to be because the love these two carry for each other is contagious. Their best friends joined them on this important and celebratory day and let me tell you, they know how to enjoy themselves and show love and appreciation to the new couple. The word GORKA was chanted probably a million times:). Every time that happen the bride and groom had to kiss, a Russian tradition that usually happens during weddings. The celebration went on and on and everybody danced at this wedding including the vendors, they were all welcomed into the celebration and needles to say I had a blast.
Valeriu and Elena, congratulations once again and happy married life!
