Galičnik Wedding Festival (Macedonia)

Every year in Macedonia, one lucky couple is tapped by festival organizers to get married in a traditional "Galička"-style wedding. Held in the western Macedonian village of Galičnik, the custom unfolds with the bride riding a horse to church. The procession is led by a flag bearer, also on horseback.
