Stefanie & Erik were married on a beautiful summers day this past July. Both Stefanie and Erik come from rich cultural backgrounds - Stefanie being a Polish girl and Erik being a Swedish chap. They integrated the best parts of both of their heritages in a beautiful celebration, complete with a heck of a lot of vodka - guess who's culture that's from!
The day started off with Stefanie getting ready, attended to by her beautiful bridesmaids.
Meanwhile, Erik was bartering for his brides hand in marriage with a bottle of Vodka - Stefanies brother, however, wouldn't budge in the negotiations unless the proper size and value of Vodka was brought to the table. Luckily for Erik, it all worked out in the end!
Next, it was time for a traditional Swedish ceremony of blessing.
Finally it was time to head off to the ceremony. Everything was going as planned, until...
Turns out, they were friendly. Stefanie & Erik were back on their way, and everything was going smoothly. Until...
Another roadblock! Turns out, this one was friendly too, especially with an offering of...you guessed it...vodka!
Finally, after an intense bartering session and two serious roadblocks, Stefanie & Erik made it to the church on time!
Next we were off to the Scottish Rite. This next picture has a bit of story behind it for Mike, its really neat. So about 5 years ago when we were just starting Zekar Photography, we were stopped at the intersection kitty cornered to the Scottish Rite. The sun was shining and there were two little flower girls who were spinning around, with the sunlight enveloping them in golden rays and you could just feel the joy. Mike said that if he was the photographer, he'd have stopped whatever he was doing to capture that moment. Fast forward 5 years, and he got his chance!
Finally it was time for real festivities to begin. Stefanie and Erik had a fantastic time with all of their loved ones surrounding them in happiness and joy!
