Marika and Jesse first met at the Savannah College of Art and Design. 10 years later they made it official! Here is their wedding day at the historic Dalton House in Marika’s hometown of Newburyport, Mass. Among the crowd of amazingly fun guests were Jesse’s southern-grown family members – fellow Georgians, yeah! – and this was their furthest trip north by many states. There were big, big smiles, a little tears, and a whole lot of dancing. Not sure if the creaky, built-a-freaking-long-time-ago house appreciated all the wild thumping induced by Michael Jackson and Rick Springfield (“Jesse’s Girl” of course) but everyone else definitely had a great time.
Their college friend Dan officiated the wedding. Hands down the most hilarious and awesomest officiating I’ve ever witnessed. I wish I had a transcript of the whole thing.
^ The Dalton House is filled with portraits of post-colonial presidents and politicians, including this rather ghoulish one of John Quincy Adams.
Congratulations Marika and Jesse!
