A young Ukrainian couple opted to ditch their May wedding and instead get married in February. 

Yaryna Arieva and Sviatoslav Fursin shared wedding vows inside St. Micheal’s Monastery as their hometown of Kyiv was under attack. After exchanging their “I-Do’s” the newlyweds headed to the local territorial defense center to join efforts to help defend the country. 

Yaryna says they know that they could both die, but they “just wanted to be together.”
