A story how the bride, groom and photographer ended up at the wedding party like three wet dogs...

The ceremony of Ilona and Aleksei was held in the Castle of Sangaste and it was followed by a great party in the culture house of Valka. It was interesting to see how a Russian wedding can be different from an Estonian wedding. If people need to perform in an Estonian wedding they take time to prepare themselves. Then they come on stage to properly play their part. Before the next thing comes there is at least a small break. In the Russian wedding of Ilona and Aleksei things were different. At one moment there was an interview with the parents and the next moment everybody was dancing and already the bridal couple is cutting the cake. It was not negative at all because all the guests were as fast as the party! At nine o'clock the bride and the groom left the venue surrounded with sparklers and by that time there had been more partying than in other weddings that end at midnight.

After the ceremony we went on a canola field to make photos. It went well until it started to rain heavily. Then it went really well because the rain didn't bother Ilona and Aleksei at all. We threw our cellphones and other stuff to the car where the bridesmaids and groomsmen were hiding. Then the couple ran on the wet highway and without words showed how passionate their love was. We arrived completely wet at the wedding party but with us we had a lot of unforgettable photos, joy in our hearts and a wet camera which showed an error because of short circuit. The camera and bridal couple dried out and worked fine. Ilona and Aleksei are wonderful people and a great example for all the brides and grooms. Love and joy must be stronger than any rain. Thank you!
