well, it's official. andy & olenka are hitched [for life].
we all celebrated the happy occasion in mid-july with plenty of family, friends, food, flowers and warm summer sunshine. the day was gorgeous, the bride stunning, the groom handsome and no flower was spared. olenka's sister-in-law, innessa, prepared, arranged, assembled and created all the beautiful floral arrangements for each table, the bride, the bridesmaids, the head table, the boutineers, the mothers' bouquets and all the little extra touches. she did amazing. several of us came to help her - but her vision and knowledge of flowers was beyond anything we could match.
several images from the day before the wedding.
some work and some talk.
groomsmen «« working hard to relax for the big day ahead.

preparing for their roles on the big day. both jerry and violetta lead the whole wedding
program and my sweet mom wrote the script leading up to the wedding.
