Bogdan, the groom, is a defense fighter and Yulia, the bride, is a volunteer.

"This is the coolest moment ever. This is destiny. A cupboard fell over me when I was volunteering in the kitchen, it was the act of God. He put a bandage on my hand and we fell in love. At first we thought we would have a quiet, low-key ceremony in a chapel. But that was not to be. We have so many friends. They all knew about it and they organized it all for us. I am shocked and I don't know what to say," said Yulia, recalling their first encounter.
Bogdan can't believe his luck.
"Who has ever gotten married here in city hall under those great columns? Has anyone ever done that ever?" he said.
While the unrest in Ukraine has produced violence and uncertainty -- at least for two people -- it already has a happy ending.
