I’ve known Krissy for almost 15 years and was so excited when she called to say that Ivan had proposed and would I photograph their wedding!
Krissy & Ivan met at a mutual friend’s 21st birthday party. They were on a jumping castle. Yep! How cool is that!?? They have been together for 10 years, when last Christmas, Ivan asked Krissy to marry him.
Now for most Australian’s (ok mainly Victorian’s) Grand Final weekend is a big one. Well, it was much bigger for these two lovebirds! Two ceremony’s and the party of all parties at Encore in St Kilda. I mentioned on our Facebook page that their wedding weekend was EPIC, and well, it was!
The first civil ceremony was under the amazing ‘Dome’ on Collins St, Melbourne. Now normally the city can be a little difficult to navigate on a weekend, however not on Grand Final day. It felt almost like a ghost town! We went on a little journey around the city for our photos, whilst listening/watching to the grand final on one of the groomsman’s mobiles. (I was super happy, he was not so much… yes you guessed right, I’m a Hawthorn supporter!) We completed our adventure back at Encore in St Kilda, where we chilled out to watch the final quarter of the football and relax before the party started. The reception was a wonderful celebration with photos of their parents and grandparents weddings, and few rounds of Macedonian dancing! Their first dance was AMAZING, and choreographed by Krissy’s sister and head bridesmaid, Trish.
The next morning was the traditional Macedonian Orthodox ceremony, followed by a lunch with close family & friends.
Congratulations Krissy & Ivan, it was a wonderful weekend! We had a ball with you both x
