You are invited to our Eastern European Wedding as it happened before WWII. The event usually lasted six days but this ceremony will be brief. The whole event was led by music and a master of ceremonies, called a Bahdkin. Ours will have a lot of beautiful music along with storytelling and singing and dancing. The narrator will lead you along the steps of the ceremony and you will learn why this is called 'Through Tears to Joy'.
