Montenegro Bay of Kotor Wedding
Set in Eastern Europe's Bay of Kotor, sweeping views serve as the backdrop for this romantic celebration all designed by the bride herself.
Friends, I've officially been bitten by the travel bug in a serious way. Because not only is this wedding stop-in-your-tracks pretty, but those Bay of Kotor views are straight from a postcard. To top it all off, this wedding photographer turned bride did all the event design herself (you read right!) and that stunning bouquet below? Just a little something she whipped up the morning of. Watch the day unfold with photos by Joseba Sandoval in THE VAULT.

From The Bride... We met each other when studied in the same university, it was such a long time ago so it seems like we were together all our lives! Last August, when we celebrated our 10th anniversary in Paris, Nikita proposed. It was absolutely unexpected and unforgettable! 

We've felt like a family for a long time already so our wedding was just a beautiful celebration of our love; an opportunity to gather our closest people together. As I'm a wedding photographer, I knew all about wedding planning and decor and we decided to make everything ourselves. We live in Montenegro currently so there wasn't a question where to celebrate. We are very happy to live in such a beautiful place, and to be able to enjoy fantastic views of the bay and mountains every day. So, I couldn't resist to use it as an illustration for our invitations. We also found a cozy little villa on the seaside with the same beautiful view to host our event.

All our guests helped make that day wonderful! On the night before our wedding, girls were helping with flowers, and the boys were helping with the lights. It added a special warm mood to our celebration and we are so grateful for all their help and support! I can't imagine what we would do without the huge floral help of our friend, Karina.

To be honest, I was a little bit of a crazy bride. I wanted to control everything! And we were really nervous about the weather forecast, but on the wedding morning I was able to relax. I just started that day making my bouquet and although it was raining, but I didn't care. After a couple of hours it gave way to sunshine and the weather stayed lovely the rest of the day.

It was very interesting to be on the other side of the camera, and I really liked it! Thank you so much to our dream team - Joseba and Mar Sandoval- for helping us to relax and feel so comfortable! They captured these important moments in such beautiful way!
