Ondřej is from the Czech Republic, Michelle is from Bellingham. They met at school in Nevada and their guests came from all over Europe and the USA.
It's great working with a couple that is so obviously unique. Who else would pick cake toppers that are a glucose molecule (she's a nutritionist) and a model showing the probability of electrons around the atom (he's a physicist)? Fantastic.. and so personal.
Michelle's dad made their altar by hand and she hid a borrowed quarter in her blue shoes At the reception they started by smashing a glass and ended by smashing a little cake.. then washed it down with a (groomsman approved) authentic Czech beer.
