Mikhail and Whitney had been together for precisely seven and a half years when they married on August 29, 2015. Having already done the moving in together seven years earlier and the getting a dog five years earlier, they wanted their wedding to be a celebration of the friends and family who loved them. With no enthusiasm for wedding planning between them, Mikhail and Whitney turned to a wedding planner to make their vision of a homey, camp-like retreat in the woods a reality.
After a two-and-a-half year engagement, Mikhail and Whitney were happy to walk down the aisle together outdoors in spite of a cloudy and cold summer day. The ceremony was a moving celebration of the couple's commitment to each other, but the game-filled reception really kept the night light and fun. Mikhail and Whitney capped off the night by dressing down and losing gracefully in a three-legged race for the bouquet.
