Nina and Denis are the kind of couple I love: for their wedding, they wanted to have something like a picnic, well, more like a festive picnic… I have to say I liked their wedding pictures, the location they chose, the atmosphere of their day. But then I asked Nina for the same details I usually ask. And I laughed out loud – it’s like being there with her. So, take a look at the pictures, read the bride’s testimonial and tell me it’s not just me. Photography credit: Samo Rovan.
The wedding took place in Lepena, in the Valley of the Soča river, also known as Valley of Trenta, Slovenian Alps. From Nina:
It was like a fairytale – a day full of happy faces and laughter, full of tears of joy, full of sun and rain. And it smelled after lavender, which was the main flower in the bride’s bouquet. Ever since, when I get into my nose the smell of this flower, I remember my day.
Name one thing you regret (1/2)…
Honestly said? We do not regret anything. I was first totally scared about how things would go on, if everything would be as perfect as I dreamed of. But then, a lot of things went different. But no later than the day after the wedding, I realized it was all the little imperfections that made my day perfect. I mean, there were things like the story about horse…
The story about the horse.
The idea of my bridesmaid was: I would ride a white horse when I would appear in front of my future husband. But the poor horse was totally scared of my white wedding dress; I mean, I was already nervous and then the horse with his turbulent behavior and nickering… My God, I just prayed “Please, take the horse away, I do not want to fall of a horse before I say my big yes”!! And then, the story about the ring…
The story about the ring.
It just did not want to go on my finger. Of course, my fingers were all swelled and the ring did not want to pass the knuckle. But when my husband said “Yes, I do take her for my wife”, the ring did not want to go on!! And then again – why is this happening to me??? Thank God I have chosen such a clever guy: Denis took the ring of, placed it in his mouth, spread a little bit of saliva on it, and then finally, the ring took its place on my finger.
Name one thing you regret (2/2)…
I mean, the wedding was totally crazy, but I really really would not change a thing. We do not regret anything!
… And one thing you’re really happy about / proud of.
I am happy that my husband and I had a really miraculous day, without even trying to make it such. The going-on took its own way – totally different from what I expected, but it looks like this was the only right thing to happen. And of course we are totally happy to have chosen Samo to be our photographer; we became friends at the very first moment we met – Samo, you are the best, thanks again!
Nina was all nervous about her first night with Denis as a married couple, thinking about things people put into her mind, like What underwear to wear? Should there be candles? Roses? It came out, Denis left the party at 5:00 and Nina at 6:30… Woooops!! But the thing is, enjoy the moment and don’t program when romanticism should happen, because, here’s Nina’s conclusion to all this: The wedding night was perfect.
And the honeymoon? No, it did not took place in Hawaii, Nina said.
A few days after the wedding we went to Tolmin (also near the Valley of Trenta), where the Metal Camp festival took place. Well, this was our honeymoon! We slept in a tent, again under the free sky; I suppose, we were the freshest married couple there.
