From the Bride:
From the beginning we wanted to have a wedding celebration outside the city to be closer to the beautiful nature. We found a wonderful scenic restaurant called Chester Ferry. Of course, at this time of year, weather in Moscow is unpredictable and a place outside may not be the best choice, but we were sure that even rain and wind would not hinder our happiness.
And what do you know, it rained the day of the wedding. So there we were at our lakeside wedding ceremony under our beautiful flower arch, surrounded by our loved ones, holding umbrellas and saying the most important words to each other. The raindrops just added more love and tenderness.
Steal Worthy Idea: Gold Succulent Escort Card Holders
How gorgeous is this escort card station and super easy to recreate yourself! All you’ll need is several dozen real (or fake) succulents and a can of spray paint and you too can have these glamorous little plants at your big day. Hint, be sure to paint these several days before your wedding so that the paint can completely set.
So don’t be afraid of rain, the atmosphere was so warm, bright, joyful and really unforgettable because our guests still remember and admire our wedding. For us it was very pleasant, because we really preparing for this day, and tried to think about every detail.
To other couples, remember that time is very fast and it is better to start to prepare in advance, so you can enjoy the process. And most importantly, on the day of your wedding try to be the your happiest, and let everyone around feel your love and energy!
