Get ready to pinch yourself, because this wedding plays out like your prettiest of dreams. I honestly didn't even believe it was real until I read the description by the lovely Bride herself, and even then I could barely fathom that a wedding this gorgeous could actually be real. Captured by Max Koliberdin in a way that makes my heart sing the sweetest of songs, this gallery is just beyond gorgeous.

From the Bride...We decided to celebrate our wedding at a wonderful and absolutely unique place - the palace and park ensemble of Gatchina (close to our hometown, St. Petersburg), a monument of Russian architecture of the XVIIIth century, located on a hill above the Silver Lake. The palace combines the spirit of a medieval castle and a country residence. It was impossible not to fall in love with it. We wanted to be outdoors, surrounded by the closest people, as Oleg and I wished this special day to hold an intimate atmosphere. In our climate, it was quite risky, but we were lucky with the weather. For the decoration of the wedding I chose a picturesque style (natural sensuality and randomness), vegetable still lifes on the tables and the bouquet in the OvOwi style. 

The main mission for me as a decorator and florist - weren't to break the garden's&palace's image integrity and carefully enter the desired decor - close to their natural view as possible. And one more thing - to cope with the my nervous tension. Because it's not easy to combine the role of the bride and the decorator. However, I do not regret this precious experience. Impressions were amazing and absolutely unforgettable. It was the best day of my life!
