Michaela Bajcurova & Justin Cherry
Justin, of Butler, Pennsylvania, met Micheala, of Humenne, Slovakia, in 2009 while working as executive chef at the Brooklin Inn in Brooklin, Maine—the same bed and breakfast where Michaela was working for the summer. The couple dated long distance until January 2011 when Michaela moved to the Holy City, where Justin had relocated more than a year before. They exchanged vows a month later with a civil ceremony in the Battery’s White Point Gardens, then celebrated with a dinner at Husk Restaurant. The pair held a second wedding in Slovakia in June 2012 and reside in Charleston.
