Mici & Jack met about 8 years ago. About time right? The met at work and after a night of Karaoke the rest was history.
We photographed Mici’s cousin’s wedding exactly a year earlier on a similarly hot Summer day. ¬†Serbian weddings are a full day party that begins hours before the ceremony. Guests arrive at the Bride’s house for a Skup (pre-ceremony party) where there is food, drink, friendship, family, music, and dancing before departing for church in a massive caravan of honking horns and waving flags.
All the photographs here are by us, husband and wife photography team, Wes & Necia Craft. ¬†Enjoy these highlights from the day. There are many more were these came from that we will share in the weeks to come. We’d love for you to visit that gallery and order prints of your family’s photos (we’ll share the link with Mici & Jack to share with you).

You know what's happening here. I feel for these kids. The ceremony was over an hour long and standing room only.
