The Dome

I attended a wedding last week at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of St John the Theologian in northern NJ.

I like this view of the exterior.

Great picture! I love your capture and also love the blue dome against the sky and the beautiful cross on top. This is so pretty!

This dome pretties up the whole church doesn't it? Nice find, Dianne. It found you because that's where the wedding was.

A very nice blend of colors. The dome is exquisite, and I bet the interiors are too!

I have always wanted to observe different cultures, especially weddings.

I think the orthodox churches have such 'over the top' details.

JM said...

This is so Greece. The blue roof reminds me of Santorini. Love it!

Nice perspective..

There's a Ukrainian Orthodox Church in our city with an interesting dome like this.
