On August 8, Kristýna Otáhalová and Richard Cifersky were married in a beautiful mansion garden in Velky Tynec, Czech Republic. Richard is currently the banjo player with Dale Ann Bradley, and has only recently come to America on a work visa.
Kristen (Kiki) is from Czech Republic and Richard from Slovak Republic. They were happy to bring all of their families together for the wedding, followed by a lovely lunch reception in nearby Olomouc. The couple had known each other for the past six years.
And yes, they did pose for a wedding photo with his banjo!
Richard is now back in the USA and Kiki will come over at the end of next month so that they can start their life together in Tennessee. They are both looking forward to seeing everyone at World of Bluegrass.
Congratulations Richard and Kiki!
