Good gracious…love is oh so sweet when you have people like this tying the knot….good gracious!
Coins thrown on the ground. Homemade bourbon. Whistles and stomps. Roasted pig. Hand holding. Circles of dancing love. Shot-gunned beers. And a whole lot of love.
Elizabeth and Marko had an absolutely amazing day. With Serbian traditions at every turn and a whole lot of love and celebration from their friends and family, the first day of Elizabeth and Marko’s marriage was the definition of a “party.” There is no doubt that these two were meant to spend the rest of their lives together….
Nothing better than ending the night with a bonfire on the beach…
The amazing vendors:
Ceremony: St Archangel Michael Serbian Church // Reception: Lakeside Inn in Lakeside, MI // Florist: Tara Florist // Dress: Macy’s Bridal Boutique // Tuxes: Formally Modern Tuxedo in Chicago // DJ: DJ Risky
The first time I met Jameson and Suzanne was in the winter of 2011, but my husband Jordan went to college with Jameson way back in 2005. Yeah they were the buddies who played endless hours of video games in their underwear in each others dorm rooms. So they go way back… but when Jameson and Suzanne moved to Goshen last year…I’m pretty sure we were destined to be friends. And then one day when Suzanne and I dreamed about the possibility of Jordan and I shooting their wedding in California…that was destined to happen as well.
Jameson and Suzanne’s wedding was the one of the most unique weddings I’ve ever had the privilege of attending…and in the most amazing way possible. They threw away the wedding rule book and everything about the day completely and wholeheartedly embodied Jameson and Suzanne as individuals and as a couple. They celebrated their love in the best way possible…exactly the way THEY wanted!
All weekend, friends and family gathered in Camarillo, California. On the morning of the big day, the couple got ready at different locations while friends and family gathered at The French Bulldog in Camarillo, California. Laughter was shared, breakfast hors d’oeuvres were eaten, and the most amazing rally for love started to form. So if you know Jameson and Suzanne at all, you would know that politics have a strong presence in their relationship and their lives in general. So the two wanted their wedding to be more like a political rally. You are probably thinking, a political wedding? How in the world does that work?
But when you are rallying for love…there are no sides. There isn’t a debate…no hate…it was completely the opposite of what I think a typical political rally would be like. It was a rally/campaign for one of the most precious gifts that we have the privilege of giving and receiving… LOVE. So the whole day was full of red, white, and blue, campaign signs, buttons with the couples faces on them, blow-horns, and a whole lot of awesome people rallying together for two people’s love.
So flippin’ amazing…..
Then around noon everyone marched across the street and joined in a flash-mob/rally/pop-up wedding ceremony…complete with chanting and signs held high into the sky. It was one of the most magical things I have ever seen. The day ended with everyone socializing over amazing food and drinks at The French Bulldog….magical I tell ya…magical.
So thank you Jameson and Suzanne for trusting us with your big day and for inviting us to celebrate your love with all your loved ones…we will truly never forget any of it. And thank you for celebrating your love the way YOU wanted…there is nothing more amazing than that :) Enjoy the magical photos everyone!
At the end of the evening, we took some photos outside the beach house that Jameson and Suzanne stayed at all weekend which is also where we stayed. That place was amazeballs.
