Tristan & Miljan/ The Stone Mill 1792 Wedding

You would never know Tristan and Miljan

planned their wedding in 4 months!

I met Tristan and Miljan (pronounced Million) at a spring wedding show in April at The Stone Mill 1792. They had just moved back to the area from Texas and decided it was time to get married.

I fell in love with them immediately! The love they share between each other is undeniable.

When we had our first meeting, Miljan talked about a Serbian wedding tradition that had something to do with shooting a gun. He pretty much knew that it wasn’t going to happen at this venue so I never got the full story on this wedding and gun tradition. Curiosity got the best of me, I went home and had to google it. The tradition goes like this: The father in law is to hang an apple high in a tree in the backyard and the groom is to shoot the apple. The bride is unable to leave the house until the apple gets shot.

Fast forward to their wedding day at the beautiful Stone Mill 1792.

Their wedding day was so calm and laid back.

When I arrived, the girls were in the bridal suite sipping on mimosas and the groom and his men were in the grooms suite enjoying a drink or a shot. I love this venue! One of the best parts about it is that the two suites are next to each other so as a photographer it makes it very convenient to bounce back and forth between the bride and the groom.

There were some touching moments throughout the day. The father/daughter first look, the groom’s speech, the daddy/daughter dance and the mother/son dance. Miljan’s parents came all the way from Serbia to celebrate their son’s marriage to Tristan which made the day more special!

Miljan was not able to carry out the Serbian tradition on his wedding day, but Tristan had a tradition that was easier to do. She placed a sixpence in her left shoe. The tradition of placing this British currency in the bride’s left shoe before walking down the aisle carries on the modern age wish of bringing good fortune, great wealth, and a happy marriage to the couple.

That is my wish for them: good fortune, great wealth and a happy marriage!

Enjoy, their wedding day in pictures!
