I had to edit some of my favorite images captured this past weekend from Susan and Marcin’s amazing wedding as quick as I could! I just couldn’t wait to post a blog to share with everyone! This gorgeous wedding took place at a private estate in the hills of Kenwood. The backdrop for their wedding was rolling green hills as far as the eyes could see. But, what really made this wedding special was the vibe: lots of laughter, happiness, good friends and family, and most important the bride and groom. It was evident that Susan and Marcin truly, deeply, love one another. They were so relaxed the entire day, just happy to be becoming husband and wife after 20 years of friendship and dating.
Susan and Marcin opted for a first look, and it was a great one to capture, as Marcin was so emotional when he saw his beautiful bride for the first time in her wedding dress! The ceremony was not only romantic, but humorous as well with just enough laughs here and there to go with the bride and groom’s fun loving personalities. Even their dog Duke was part of the ceremony.
Dinner was amazing, prepared by one of their friends; flank steak with Chimichurri sauce, a Cod with mango salsa, and some delicious mac and cheese! After some amazing speeches by family and friends, Susan and Marcin participated in a Polish wedding tradition of breaking bread and each taking a drink from a shot glass. One shot glass had water, and the other had vodka. Whomever got the vodka in their shot glass would forever “wear the pants” in the family. Turns out they both received vodka! The hot day led into a evening of perfect, warm weather where Susan and Marcin and their guests danced the night away under the stars. It was a perfect wedding from start to finish.
Congrats or Gratulacje to the Witkos! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to capture your very special day!! XO, Stacey
