A known family of stonemasons from the island of Brac. Jaksic’s Art sculpture was symbolically used to hold the Wedding rings.
The Stonemason workshop, the venue where the dinner reception was taking place, was elegantly dressed up by Maja Starek from Showroom. We did not want to change the school interior too much. It as such is enough to emphasize the beauty and significance of the stone and works created by the students of the school. We combined local plants for floral decoration to complete the story. The details on the table, which are the work of the Jaksic family, gave a unique and final touch to this story. The combination of colors that ran through this micro wedding is white, beige, and generally stone tones.
