Meet Simon McNorton and Justin Johnson.
Married in May of last year, they're the first to admit they're a somewhat unlikely pair.
Their backgrounds, upbringings, and stances on things like politics and religion? Totally different.
But at their wedding — held at the D.C. War Memorial in Washington — they celebrated those differences in a beautiful way.
"It was an interesting challenge," Justin told BuzzFeed Life, of planning the big day. "But we agree on more than we disagree — and we certainly learned a lot from each other in the process."
To start, they knew they both wanted a non-traditional wedding — one that blended their different styles and cultures.
On their big day, Justin wore his Marine Blues, and Simon donned a traditional Indian Sherwani.
"I had my heart set on it the same way a bride might have [a] vision of the perfect dress," Simon told BuzzFeed Life. "Got it tailored, spent far too much money on it, but I felt like a Maharaja when I put it on. I'm still looking for excuses to wear it."
