Margaret and Jonathan met on New Year’s Eve, ringing in 2011 at the Parthenon. The pair shared a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. “A bottle (or two) of Jack Daniel’s might have been passed around the dance floor at our wedding,” Margaret laughs. “Hey—we are from Tennessee, after all!”

With the help of event planner Jayne Bubis, the couple crafted an enchanting, rustic wedding from their current home in Kenya. Dogwood branches and peonies adorned the head dinner tables, hand-crafted cocktails were served from a masculine bar area, and star-shaped lights lit the dancefloor from above. Margaret’s most vivid memory was looking around during the reception, taking a moment to see everyone enjoying themselves talking, laughing, and dancing. “I made a note to myself to treasure that moment forever,” the bride says.

“The most important part of the wedding was involving family and friends, especially since we live in Africa and don’t get to see them as often. It meant so much to us to have everyone we love in one place, in celebration and joy.”
