Wedding in Prague


Nearly everyone asks, "Why did she get married in Prague?" After all, both Ian and Ellen are living in Atlanta. Well, Prague is clearly an interesting venue. The arrangements were a little complex, but the outcome was great.

The most widely published image from Prague is the 15th century, astronomical clock at the Old City Hall in Old Town Square.

Vaclav Havel, who has now stepped down as President of the Czech Republic, put this heart up as a gesture of affection toward the nation. We thought that it was a nice welcome sign for the bride and groom.

Because the wedding was on December 28, we were all in Prague for Christmas. Old Town Square was filled with booths selling Christmas goodies, including hot wine and grog to fight off the cold. The 14th century Church of our Lady before Tyn overlooks the square. Our hotel room looked out to the other side of the church.

But let's get to the important things. Here Ellen waits, patiently. Notice the shoes. Orange! No one quite believed it, but they look right with everything else.

Weddings are family affairs, and here Ian and his father enjoy a moment while the city officials are getting their act together. Actually, there was another wedding before Ian's and Ellen's. So this was queue time.
