Two of my dear friends tied the knot in Winnipeg this past June and I was thrilled to be able to be a part of their special day. 

Jason and Stacie hold their Ukrainian heritage very close to their hearts. They are both active in the Ukrainian dance community and I was ever so lucky to have them both perform for my husband and I at our wedding last July. 

The Ukrainian Catholic ceremony was ever so special, rich in tradition and symbolism. My favorite part was the choir which was a special all male choir from Winnipeg called the Hoosli Ukrainian Male Chorus. All heads turned towards the back of the church as soon as they started singing. It truly gave goosebumps to hear and was absolutely incredible!

Another very special touch would have to be the napkin tie favors that Jason and Stacie gave each one of their guests. These favors were made by the charity called 'Sumna Kvitka' in Ukraine which translates to 'Sad Flower'. Sumna Kvitka was created to help bereaved families of Ukraine's heroes and was founded by a widow whose husband lost his life during a military operation during the war in the east of Ukraine. The main purpose of the charity is to help the children and families of fallen heroes, remember fallen heroes, help soldiers of ATO and to help anyone affected by the conflict in Ukraine. 

If you would like more information on Sumna Kvitka, on the things that they can create for your wedding/event or how you can help please send us an e mail or visit their Facebook page which is linked to their name above in the vendors list. 

Mnohoya Lita Jason and Stacie! May God grant you many happy years! ❤
