Dasha + Lesha

“Shades of Summer” – Russian Fairytale Wedding

The wedding of Dasha and Lesha is a true fairytale. From the design of their wedding to the pictures, when I first took a look at this reportage I felt like I was 10 again immersed in the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Except this is no Alice in Wonderful wedding theme; it’s the own couple’s universe, created for the very purpose of their day. I have no doubt it’ll have the same effect on you, and though I would like to comment on every moment of their day that was captured, I’m not gonna spoil this one, and all I’m gonna say is: Enjoy! Photography by Olga Plakitina, out of Russia.

The word of the organising team.

Some brides want for their wedding bright, juicy shades; many dream of romantic pastel pink, some need a muted pale blue, while others cannot live without the pristine white. But Dasha wanted a completely different palette for their day, filled with only expressive, deep shades of summer. As for our team, we think it worked! Color determines the individuality of a person, fills their aura, gives the necessary feeling pleasing the eye. Dasha and Alex will remain sunny – yellow, smiling and family. We have tried to make as much expressive living elements for the design of their celebration: ripe pears and apples on the tables, iridescent vases for flowers, candles and colored motley sweets. The impression that everything is happening at the front porch of a small garden, home and family, summer and languishing in the heat of the natural area.

An Alternative to the Bouquet Toss

As many of you come here to see alternative weddings, I thought you might be interested in seeing this alternative to the bouquet toss. I don’t know if someone knows this practice, but I had personally never seed this before—and I have seen a bunch of weddings in these past years—so I thought I’d share!

Not only does it prolong the friendly moment when someone inherits the bride’s bouquet, but it looks a lot funnier – and as a bonus you may make a photographer happy! Photos by the French photographer Sylvain Le Lepvrier. (You may also recognize the woman in the yellow dress as being the bride of one of my favorite weddings ever!)

Happy Monday!!

How it works.

First, multicolor ribbons are attached to the bouquet. Every non-married female guest gets to hold the end of one ribbon. Then, the brides closes her eyes and cuts a ribbon, resulting in the person at the other end of it to be out of the game. It is recommanded that the challengers turn around the bride while her eyes are closed so that she has absolutely no idea whose ribbon she’s cutting. This scenario goes on and on until only one ribbon is left; the person holding it wins the bouquet!

(French) Kiss

You May Now French Kiss the Bride – Pictures of Wedding Kisses

Hey folks, happy Wednesday! First I’d like to apologize once more for not being as regular as before. I went back to work this week, and I have to say it’s quite relaxing compared to taking care of our little bloy all day, so I guess it’ll all soon get back to normal.

I wanted to create this post on pictures of wedding kisses a long time ago (I mean, didn’t I HAVE to?), so I’m happy that I finally gathered a few pics to make it happen; hope you’ll like it as much as the previous post on unusual and unexpected situation!

So, themed post again, YAY! And the good news is, I already have all the pictures I need for the next theme, which means you won’t have to wait too long for the next one!
