Hi all,

My girlfriend wants to know what an Orthodox wedding would be like.  There's no Orthodox church near her, and she's never been to one....  Does anyone have/know of a video of an Orthodox wedding?  Perhaps in English as well?

GOTelecom produced a movie that explains the Orthodox marriage service. It includes a lot of footage of the service as celebrated at St. Sophia Cathedral in Los Angeles some time in the late 80s or very early 90s from the looks of it.

There are several available on youtube.com under "orthodox wedding" but I haven't actually watched them.  Unfortunately, Mr. Y and I didn't do a wedding video, but we do have several nice photos.
