sergeilovestonya is a blog about the upcoming nuptuals of a Ukrainian boy and an American girl in their mid-30s, both living in Milwaukee and trying to fashion a budget conscious wedding full of customs that reflect the heritage of both. This is the second marriage for both- he having a very small, traditional Soviet-style courthouse wedding and she having a traditional, giant American megawedding. This time around, it will be a small, fashionable affair for probably no more than 50 close friends and family. Which shouldn’t be hard as neither is from Milwaukee….
Tonya, the bride, grew up in Iowa and went to college and law school in Kentucky. After years in the legal field, she has moved on to more of a nonprofit focus and works as the Director of Volunteers for a local hospice.
Sergei, the groom, has an engineering and software development background and works as a software architect for a local mortgage data corporation.
Sergei also has a 5 year old son from his previous marriage, making it all that more interesting, delightful, and complicated.
