This was the most international wedding I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of! Nick is Bulgarian and Lesley is Irish. There was even some nervous moments in the days leading up to the wedding whether her visa would be approved and arrive in time for her to hop on a plane and get to their wedding. But it did and everything went off without a hitch. Photography was an important component of their wedding day. They even planned two hours between the ceremony and the reception so that we would have plenty of time to hit all of the great spots around downtown St. Augustine. Their ceremony was held at the historic Memorial Presbyterian Church. It was my first ceremony held there and I was thrilled by the gorgeous colors and great lighting. Betty Crosby of Elegant Events coordinated the ceremony and helped them with the details since Lesley was planning a lot of the wedding from Ireland.
The reception, held at the St. Augustine Hilton, was a rockin party full of lots of teary-eyed toasts and laughter. But best of all they carried out an old Bulgarian custom that is said to tell what the gender of their first born will be. They had a huge soup pot that the bride had to kick. If it landed facing up it was going to be a girl, face down a boy and if it landed on it's side, TWINS! So I fully expect Lesley to call me for maternity photos someday when she is pregnant with a girl (no twins thank God)! Congrats to you both!
