This Wedding Might Have the Best Invitations Ever
The Bride wrote out their love story, paired it with beautiful illustrations, and bound it in velvet to send to their guests in lieu of an invitation.
This wedding may just have won the award for best invitations! After finding out the Bride harbored a lifelong love of writing, 2 Apelsina encouraged Daria to write out her love story as a fairytale. They paired the novella with beautiful illustrations bound in velvet, then sent these charming books to all of the wedding guests. The rest of the wedding is just as swoon-worthy, so scroll on to see it all captured by Julia Kaptelova Photography.

From the Bride... In my childhood, I dreamt about becoming a writer, so our wedding planner encouraged me to write a short novel based on our love story. I did it, then we added some illustrations, and this book covered with velvet became a unique invitation! The venue reminded us of a real Middle Age castle, so we got a sense of the theme for our wedding – a modern fairytale. We were inspired by nature, forest landscapes, and fairytale pictures featuring beautiful royal receptions with their special atmosphere and precise details. The decoration team used lots of greenery, ivy, and roses to create and organic connection between our venue and nature.

The wedding day was absolutely stunning! During the preparation, it seemed to be so far off, but the time passed so quickly! Our ceremony is the best memory of this day – it was so emotional, touching, and beautiful. The florists embellished the stone arch with ivy and greenery, which looked like it was always there, it was so natural! Unique vintage chairs and crystal glasses gave a nod to the Middle Ages at the reception. We decided to share the same table with family to feel even more close. My grandma made presents for the guests – homemade jam, which was beautifully decorated with garden roses.
