Brides of Moscow

Brides, brides, brides.  Everwhere you look in Moscow you'll see brides.  It seems the custom in Moscow is that newly-married couples have their photos taken all over the city.  If you go to any of the major sights in Moscow on a sunny day, you'll likely see a bride or two or three or four at any single location.  Oh yes, the grooms are there too.   

Here's a bride in the GUM shopping mall:

Walking down the street:

Throwing a coin over her shoulder and making a wish: 

At a scenic overlook:

Near a church:

Placing her bouquet at the tomb of the unknown soldier:
