I won't re-tell the story of our wedding dinner party here since you can read it elsewhwere on this forum.  Go to the Adventure Continues section and then one of the first topics is Inside a ZAGS wedding....complete with videos.  The story of our wedding dinner party is there on page 4:

If you have questions regarding Russian wedding traditions and about various ways to propose, the above referenced thread is something you'd enjoy from start to finish.

Great story and your writing, especially during the part with the bus, reminded me of Bill Bryson.  So at least this person would be interested in the book when it's completed.  Thanks for sharing.

 Being that I'm fairly new to the forum, I am just now getting around to reading the TRs. I have to say that this was quite a very well written story, and I was able to feel the adventure like as if I weas there. I am very happy for the couple, and hope you all have a great life together-Happily ever after and all!
  It's stories like this one that makes me want to find a FSU wife too-and of course that's why we are all here, isn't it?  ;D
