Jenn & Mark are truly a unique couple. From Jenn’s skull earrings to Mark’s hidden super hero t-shirt, this couple made sure that nothing was too ordinary about their big day! In 2008, Jenn & Mark met at a bbq at Mark’s cousins house who also happened to be a friend of Jenn’s as well. Five years later, with Mark’s cousin as his best man, he married his best friend in a fun and personalized ceremony. Instead of having their officiant give his usual speech at their ceremony, Mark and Jenn decided to write their own ceremony to read while they were pronounced husband and wife. Jenn and Mark are both into video games, comics, super heroes, zombies… and their ceremony included references to all of them – intertwined with sweet vows and heartfelt sentiments.
After the ceremony and some fun portrait time with the bridal party and Jenn and Mark, (Believe me, those groomsmen were a crack-up!) their guests sat down in the gorgeous Ballroom at Villa Siena. Mark and Jenn were married early in the morning, so their guests were all treated to a brunch, complete with omelets, bacon, orange juice, coffee – Yum! The rest of the afternoon was filled with sweet toasts (including a song written just for them!) lots of socializing, and a their very own volleyball-playing zombie cake (yes, you read that right!). To top it all off, the couple ended with a bubble send-off and drove away. The couple topped it all off with going to Hawaii for their honeymoon (jealous!!).
Thanks Jenn and Mark for putting on such a fantastic and fun day, we loved seeing it all come together!
