Third Wedding of the Year

This past Saturday was the third wedding of the year that I was invited to.  Weddings in Europe, at least in Central Europe, are different from the "normal" weddings I was used to in the USA.  However, the most important thing is that you've got two people who love each other and want to make a commitment to marriage.  And that part is the same.

Tomáš and Annička had their ceremony in the Kroměříž chateau.  I was told that it would be a civil ceremony performed by the town's mayor.  As far as a justice of the peace wedding goes, this one was awesome.

And if you are going to get married in a government building then you can't go wrong if it just happens to inside of a UNESCO World Heritage SiteThe location was fabulous!!  This has got to have been the coolest "town hall" wedding ever.

After the ceremony, there were all of the usual traditions that I saw at Alex and Ondra's wedding and at the village wedding...breaking plates, doing shots of slivovice, etc.  After the ceremony and photos we all headed over to lunch at the reception in their village of  Litenčice. 

This turned out to be one heck of a great party that lasted well in to the early hours of the morning.  Lots of food, drinks and dancing.  It was definitely one heck of a party and I had a great time.  The only downside was the shiner that I'm now sporting.
