  1. Catherine, this looks like a really fun event! The costumes are incredible – what’s the tradition behind the elaborate dresses? ~Terri
    P.S. You won’t believe the incredible bride photos we’re getting on our Eastern European trip – they’re everywhere! Can’t wait to show you. 🙂

    • I’m really enjoying the photos you post on Facebook. The Polish painted Easter eggs were amazing. The gnomes photos are adorable and charming! I’m going to head to your blog to get the full tour and can’t wait to see the bride photos.

  2. What an interesting event. Why did you go?
