Jernine + Jakub's Wedding

We're going to let photographer Matt Besenyodi tell Jernine + Jakub's love story this Wedding Wednesday!

"Jernine and Jakub met at a college they were attending in Missouri over 10 years ago, where they were both college athletes. They had a few mutual friends — which is how they met — and the rest is history. Fast forward 10 years to their beautiful summer wedding, surrounded by close friends and family. Believe it or not, this is the first time that both families were able to meet each other. Jakub is from Prague and Jernine is from Toronto, so needless to say, arranging a meeting beforehand proved to be a bit difficult as you can imagine.

Their vision for this beautiful wedding was simple, but timeless and elegant. They wanted a minimalist romantic chic vibe, and achieved this by adding in soft rustic colors like greens, blues, peaches and whites by incorporating eucalyptus, olives leaves and copper geometric center pieces.Aside from the decor however, the most important thing to them was to be surrounded by their families and incorporating them into their wedding day. They said that seeing their families come together, interacting with each other and having a great time was the highlight of their wedding.

Jernine bought her dress from Superior Bridal in Toronto. She says it was the most unique dress she tried on, as well as the most comfortable! When I asked Jernine what advice she could give to future brides, her answer was short and sweet: 'Have fun! It's your day!' And I couldn't agree with her more."
