Warm Russian Winter Wedding
We are oh so excited to share with you this real wedding that’s straight out of a Christmas card! This fresh powdered scene proved to be the perfect backdrop for Anton and Eugenia’s nuptials, and we love that every small detail was an unexpected, but amazingly creative nod to the way the couple first met (you’ll never guess!). Some of our favorite elements include the blue scaled cake, the peppermint bark and marshmallow filled dessert station and the gold terrariums suspended from a mix of wiry branches and twinkle lights – bless Holiday Everyday for this brilliance! July Event incorporated pine needles everywhere they could, and we are obsessed with Eugenia’s bouquet that looks simply frost-kissed. But perhaps the most touching part of this whole celebration was Eugenia’s surprise musical performance (in more ways than one) captured flawlessly by WarmPhoto! Okay enough talking. More ooh-ing and ahh-ing!
From the photographer, WarmPhoto: Anton and Eugenia met ten years ago. She took Mathematics courses at the State University, where Anton taught. Almost ten years after Anton made the marriage proposal on one of the most beautiful squares in Rome under the sparkling light of the sun and the sounds of Italian music.
The decorators Holiday Every Day decided to add some personality to the day and offered to use mathematics as the main idea. Mathematics in the decor was unique and fresh idea. There were geometric florariumy, patterns on napkins, candles unusual shapes and most importantly – the arch (the shape of a square root, covered spruce branches, pine cones, candles and florariumami flasks). All this beauty left guests with a sense of the real winter fairy tale and miracle. The wedding had the truly magical atmosphere: soft warm lights, hot mulled wine, the touching ceremony and only sincere feelings.
The most difficult part for the bride was a surprise to Anton. More precisely – to keep the surprise a secret! She wanted to play at the wedding a few favorite Anton`s saxophone tunes. Saxophone, as you know, is not the smallest musical instrument, and she couldn’t just hide it in a handbag, saying goodbye to Anton: “Honey, I have a meeting with my friends,” – it was not possible. So she had to hide it in the stairwell, in his fur coat, on a shelf for shoes, each time risking that he exposes her. Probably, it was a miracle, but Anton really never guessed her surprise. When she went on stage with the saxophone and started playing a melody «Autumn leaves», he was shocked … It was the most enjoyable part of the preparation – to make a surprise for a beloved one, which he could not even dream of! The best memory of the wedding is the people who filled it with their soul.
