Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t know what a yurt is. And I won’t make you wait to find out, and I won’t even make you google it yourself – here’s a link to a wikipedia entry about yurts. And if you don’t feel like clicking, I’ll tell you that a yurt is a “portable, bent dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia as their home. “

Yurts are commonly seen in Kazakhstan. So, to recognize groom Kanat’s home country, he and bride Lisa presented their guests with these beautiful felt yurt favors at their September wedding at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh.
