By Amy Falkofske Sponsored by Wedding Stories by Tania The spark that started Tania Hossain’s wedding photography business happened in 2011 when she took photos of the preparations for a friend’s Ethiopian wedding.

On Celebrating Your Original Wedding Date

By: Tania Hossain of  Wedding Stories By Tania If you have had to delay your wedding date due to any reason out of your control, you are not alone, especially if your original wedding date was in the spring or summer of 2020.  Due to social distance notices to protect public health, staying 6 feet apart with only 10 people was hardly the wedding you had imagined or planned.
