St. Sava Church | Marisa Ajder & Mike Crnokrak

Marisa and Mike were married at St. Sava Church in Merrillville, IN and WHAT a beautiful day with beautiful people!! This day especially was filled with so much joy. You can see it on the faces of the bride and groom…the faces of their wedding party…their family and friends…joy filled this union and I’m so excited that I got to be part of it. In the words of the bride and groom….

Mike – “I met Marisa when I was a senior in high school. We met through mutual friends.”

Marisa – “Mike and I met when we were both just 17! He was a senior, and I was a Junior at Lake Central High School. We met through our groups of friends. It’s crazy to say that we have been together for 11 years!”

Mike – “When I graduated high school I went down south to attend college 5 hours from our hometown. Since I graduated before her, Marisa was still back at home finishing her senior year of high school. Me being away from her then and our long distance relationship through college was probably the most challenging on our relationship. I told myself if we could make it through that then we can make it through anything. It was then that I knew that she was the one.”

Marisa – “I most definitely knew that Mike was the one when I went away to college. I was away at IU and he was back at home. He would make the 3.5 hour drive down to visit me all of the time and I did the same for him. Not having the ability to see each other all of the time made the time that we had to spend together that much more special, and it made me appreciate the loving and supportive person that he was. I most definitely knew that he was the one when I realized that we had the same passion and love for food and staying in on the weekends and being couch potatoes together!!”

“The proposal was a HUGE SUPRISE! Mike had told me that he wanted to surprise me and take me somewhere. I had gotten all ready to go out with him, and he tried to throw me off by asking me if I wanted to stay home instead. We got in the car and began driving toward Lansing Airport. When I finally realized where we were going, I had a minor panic attack as I began to realize we were going to be doing something that required me to either get into a helicopter or a small plane… and it was a helicopter! I have to be honest, after dating for 12 years, Mike has surprised me with some fun activities, so I really didn’t think that it would be happening! We got in the helicopter and took the most romantic evening helicopter ride through the city of Chicago. We were weaving in and out of buildings like in a movie! When we finally got back to the airport, the pilot went inside the hanger, and Mike and I went inside the lobby. When we walked in there were candles, roses, rose petals, champagne, and there was the ring! Mike got down on one knee and asked me to make him the luckiest guy in the world and asked me to marry him! Of course I SAID YES!”

Marisa -” I am so lucky to have such an amazing parter to be my husband. Mike and I have something that many couples don’t, we grew up together. We went through various stages in our lives and supported each other unconditionally. I love him so much, and I can’t wait to marry him on our special day.”

Mike-” I am not the world’s most luckiest guy, but I really struck gold with this one. Not only is she a wonderful fiance/wife, but she’s my best friend, she’s my mentor, and probably the more caring, sincere woman I have ever met. She is over all my favorite person in the world.”
