  • At the beginning of the second part of the wedding service, a pink cloth is laid out, on which the couple is supposed to step. Superstition holds that whoever steps on the mat first will be the head of the household.
  • No one can tell if Levin stepped on it first, or if they both stepped at the same time.
  • The couple remains absolutely radiant throughout all the prayers.
  • After supper, the newlyweds leave for the country.
