The Wedding Handshake

For Alexis Tyler and Tomy Szczypiorski, who recently wed in Vermont, a simple peck on the lips just wouldn’t do.  The couple sealed the deal with an elaborate handshake, culminating in a kiss.

The story behind the adorable move is the best part of this story. On their first international trip together, the couple went to Poland, where Tomy introduced Alexis to his extended family, and a 9-year old relative taught them a popular Polish handshake. Since that special trip, the couple has added a step for each significant milestone in their relationship, with their wedding being the 11th step. All we can say is, awwwwww!
