South Bend Indiana Wedding Photographers | Nelia & Brett
Nelia and Brett are an international couple. Nelia is from Ukraine and Brett is from the United States. They met in Ukraine while Brett lived there for 2.5 years. I was happy to attend and to photograph their international wedding, which took place in the Chicago area in the Immaculate Conception Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic Church.
Nelia and Brett were so lucky with the weather. No one could have expected such a wonderful sunny day on November 15. It felt like a peasant summer or at least September day with temperatures in the upper 60s.
The church ceremony was very interesting for me and I’ve never attended anything like it. The ceremony took over an hour and consisted of many different elements. The priest was telling us about every tradition and explained why it is important and where it comes from. The ceremony started at the church entrance, which is where the couple exchanged rings. They proceeded to the altar and had blessings, there were wreaths and handcrafted towels involved, they had to walk around the altar 3 times, they read from the Bible and held candles.
