Mark and Jennifer have a deep respect for their family histories. Their families’ legacy has formed their faith, their gracious and calm approach to life, and ultimately – family simply means the world to them.
Years ago, Mark’s parents were religious refugees from the USSR, and they’ve raised Mark to understand the importance of faith, freedom, and sticking close to those you love. They’ve raised Mark to be honest and hard-working, and his athletic talents put him through school on a soccer scholarship.
Jenn is sweet-natured, no-fuss, and is always helping others in her nursing career. She always knew that when she got married, she’d want a La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club wedding – after years of family vacations on their beautiful beaches, the place holds a nostalgic meaning for the whole family. But most of all, it’s where her parents were married, and carrying on that legacy meant the most to Jennifer.
Mark and Jenn are high school sweethearts that love to spend their time together intentionally – whether it’s cooking in the kitchen or playing volleyball with a group of friends — Mark even helps Jennifer practice her Russian (which is his first of three languages!)! They spent three years long-distance, but they’ve developed deep friendships along different walks of life, all who gathered to celebrate at their San Diego wedding. Each and every bridal party member gave a toast at their reception, in addition to their very proud parents – a testament to their incredibly strong community!
Expertly designed by the ladies at Luxe Events, Jenn and Mark’s mellow and relaxed beach wedding was perfectly reflective of this gentle couple’s vibe – effortlessly gorgeous. We LOVE the outstanding florals by Annette Gomez, and one of our favorite parts of the day was their ADORABLE getaway car!
To the NEW Mr. & Mrs, we are SO SO happy for you guys! Thank you for inviting us in to capture the next chapter of
YOUR legacy together.
