Rusyn weddings

    Is there anything quite like a Rusyn wedding?  From the old country we still hold onto some of our cherished traditions.  I think of the wedding dance still done at my 1971 wedding. And the music and food and cheer.

    I am attaching a pic of my Aunt Mary's wedding party. I marvel at  her beauty and lovely gown. How was my grandfather able to provide  the likes of such a wedding on a miners salary? The wedding of Mary Pohanish Sworin and John Sworin was held on July 18, 1916. I know it was held at St. Michael's Byzantine Church in Dunmore. And that's all of the story I know.  Was there music and dancing? a wedding cake? most definitely the bridal dance? at my grandmothers house? who sewed the beautiful gown and headpiece?
