Jane and Heath were married at the Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church in Whitehall and their reception was held at The LeMont. Elizabeth and I had not photographed a Serbian Orthodox wedding before so Jane and Heath’s wedding was a treat for us! Their tradition is to have a reception before the wedding as well as afterwards, which took place inside of the Doubletree Hotel in Greentree, complete with a Serbian band!
Another lively tradition within their culture is tossing coins at the bride and groom as they leave the church. The band played (yes, they were outside of the church as well!) and shots of Serbian Brandy flowed as Jane and Heath were showered with coins. Madness ensued as adults scrambled to take the couples photograph as the children jousted for the loose coins!
Their wedding was so entertaining and was capped off during a high-spirited reception on Mt. Washington at The LeMont. Elizabeth and I were so thrilled to spend their special day with Jane and Heath and we eagerly look forward to the next Serbian Orthodox wedding that we get to photograph! Congratulations Jane and heath, we are so happy for you both!
