Today marks a small milestone on my blog – it should be post # 500 under the Around the World category. It means that there should be 500+ photos for you to explorer. I’ll have to make a toast when I get back from work to another 500+ posts.
Most Important Day in Their Life
Their marriage ceremony is in progress. It is probably one of the most important days in their lives. In such a pretty place too. The couple you see is actually not the one getting married, these two are holding special hats over the couple who is getting married. If you’d look from the side you’d see what I’m talking about.
It is highly unlikely that anyone would be able to tell where it is, so here is another photo, from outside. The story goes that this church was built without a single iron nail. Not sure how true it is, but I kind of like it.

These photos are like a fairy tale, Dmitrii.
Congrats and keep them coming.
As always tough one to guess. Is it the Orthodox Church in Almaty, Kazakhstan? (I hope I am right!…fingers crossed)
you are right, wow! that is a good eye, did you recognize the photo or my little tip give it away?
I went to Kazakhstan 5 years ago and managed 2 hours of sightseeing in Almaty! Though I didn’t recognize it at first, but then slowly it came back to me! Love your pictures!
Great photos! This Cathedral has a very special place in my heart. I haven’t been to Kazakhstan for many years, so thank you for this small memento from my past 🙂
yes, fairy tale hits it on the head
500 Well done!!!!!
Enjoy your toast to the 500th post!
My daughter got married last Friday, but not in that magnificent temple! There were floods & the wedding took place in the basement of a hotel instead of in the gardens… Otherwise it was perfect 🙂 Rain is meant to be lucky for the bride!!!
Congrats on your milestone, and I can’t wait to see the next 500
Congrats on big milestone — the wedding and your posts. Always a pleasure!
Woops- I thought that comment was from you– well, not the wedding, just the great posts! 🙂 Keep them coming- thanks.
hehe, thanks, it wasn’t my wedding… I just crashed someone else wedding… I was very discreet…
Orthodox Church in St. Petersburg?
Oh wow! I didn’t know you go on this blog!
Thank you for sharing beautiful 500+ photos! Congrats!
Cobgrats for 500 🙂
Wow! Congratulations on your 500th post. Beautiful shots as always.
congratulations! wow, 500! amazing..
No idea what the church is, but it’s a beautiful couple photos of a beautiful church. Were you a guest, or a photographer, or what? How’d you get to take up-close-and-personal photos of a wedding?
Congrats on the 500 milestone. All your photos are awesome!
congratulations on your milestone – keep shooting these great images!
I think its the Zenkov Cathedral?
Ljubimaja Almata, spasibo!…
I take it you grew up there.
I was born there and lived there for a while. Then we moved to Estonia but visited Almaty every summer. My favorite city!
