Georgian Wedding, in Photographs

Argh, it's late, and I'm tired.  And I have to get up at 7:00 tomorrow because I am going to Kutaisi.  With Julie, so it's not like I can just push it back an hour or two if I don't feel like getting out of bed.  But since I am going to Kutaisi tomorrow, I know I'll have another epic post to do when I get back, and the next day my summer job starts...

So here it is.  My second Georgian wedding.

I have no idea who these people are or even their names.  But I wish you all the best.  Thank you for sharing your day with the strange American!
Indoor fireworks.  Safety (and fire marshals) are for other counties.
The bride and groom typically do a traditional dance before they sit down.
Nata with host Grandma Izo
Host great-uncle Wagneri and host great-aunt Dodo.  They live next door.
Anna (in white) dancing with a friend.
Creeeepy LED glowing eye on a roast goat.
This adorable old dude asked me to dance.
Okay, this post kind of sucks.  Sorry.  There was a ton of food and wine and good people, and I made mimosas out of Georgian sparkling wine and orange Fanta.  No judging.

Tired.  Kutaisi tomorrow.  Peace!
