[Married] Elizabeth & Goran

We get nervous before weddings-especially when we haven’t met the bride until the day of the wedding! AHHHH! We knew Elizabeth was a sweetheart from her emails but normally we have a consultation, bridal or engagement sessions before the big day. It helps us get to know the couple and gets them used to the camera. But when she said “hang on…can I order 2 double cheeseburgers” during our phone call we knew she was going to be our kind of girl-not many brides eat at all on their wedding day, much less burgers! Elizabeth & Goran were pros and the camera loved them so it was a breeze. After a traditional ceremony at All Saints Catholic Church in Manassas, we headed to Piedmont Country Club where the couple did their first dance to the untraditional reggae tune “Hold Ya” by Gyptian. We loved it! They have a very strong Croatian heritage so there was traditional music & dances. Elizabeth had been practicing Croatian and prepared a speech as she wanted to honor his culture by saying thank you in Croatian to him and his family who had traveled so far to make it to their wedding. Elizabeth’s father made the incredible wedding cake-a traditional fondant cake, with luscious layers of toasted almonds, almond flour, almond cherry liquor, cherry preserves, pastry cream and whipped cream.

Ashley & I showed up dressed like the wedding party in black & hot pink. Total accident, but it was a perfect match! Elizabeth & "Gogo" we wish you the very best!
