Stephen's of NY, and Protopresbyter Dragoljub Malich of Monroeville. We weren't just Licani, we were Serbs from the area of Lika (Krajina). Our childre are the second generation born here in the United States and that does not make them any less Serbian!
"The happy couple has two beautiful daughters, Andja and Djuka. xoxox +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Steve Kozobarich has a wonderful blog, all on old Serbian tamburitza music. it will charge your battery and you will run until empty many times over between now and the wedding.
There is NOTHING like a Serbian wedding, whether we're talking about the exciting SKUP (pre-wedding festivities with food and song and the bartering for the bride's hand!
), or the serenading of the bride by a tambura orchestra before she goes into the church.
It is the grace and beauty of the Serbian Orthodox wedding ceremony-the solemn Sacrament of Marriage itself, and it's also the heart-thumping kolo dancing outside of the church by the wedding party and well-wishers, while coins are being tossed to promise good luck/financial prosperity. Its a MUST to record with your eyes, ears and heart everything that you're seeing and hearing. JT's brother, Paul (a Ceramics Engineer) was excellent in his role as Dever, bartering long and hard before winning the bride's hand for his brother, as Aleks' brother, Bronko, made sure Paul's offers were worthy of his beautiful, kind and talented sister!
