When we heard the words “fourteen bridesmaids,” we knew we would be in for a wild ride. What we didn’t know yet was just how special Jolene & Vika are to those who love them.
This quickly became clear as we felt the amazing energy in the room on that day in July when fourteen bridesmaids, two families, and so many friends came together to celebrate the union of two souls who, in the words of those who know them best, are “perfect for one another.”
Their wedding was both a celebration of their unity and a celebration of the people who have stood by them throughout their journey. Though Jolene lost her mother to cancer, her presence was deeply felt. From the slideshow of photographs put together by Jolene’s sister to the poem read by her father, you could feel their unbreakable bond and connection. When Vika’s mother opened her arms to embrace Jolene, there was not a dry eye in the house (including ours).
