Anastasia Kozmina, daughter of Gennady and Larisa Kozmina of Murmansk, Russia, and William Michael Milstead, son of Deborah Milstead of White Plains and William H. Milstead of Rison, were united in marriage July 13.

The couple were pronounced husband and wife during a civil ceremony held at the Charles County Courthouse in La Plata.

A wedding reception was held at the home of the groom’s mother after the ceremony.

In attendance were family and friends, including the bride’s sister and brother-in-law, Oksana and Manuel Sanchez of Virginia, as well as the groom’s parents and sister, Erin Milstead and her fiance, Michael Aji.

The bride’s parents live in Russia and were unable to attend; however, they witnessed the ceremony and were able to interact with their daughter through the online video-messaging service Skype.

The couple honeymooned for a week at the beach in Chincoteague, Va.

They reside in Falls Church, Va., and hope to visit the bride’s parents in Russia in the near future.
