If there is a thing on this gorgeous planet I love as much as I love weddings, it would be travel. So a destination wedding like this one captured by Mukhina Photography is a dream come true for me. It’s as though my two worlds collided with one seriously stunning result, and it was all made possible by the workings of Franci’s Flowers Wedding Design. So you can trust me when I say my weekend will be spent right here.
From Franci’s Flowers Wedding Design… I’m glad to share with you these stunning photos of Mikhail and Yulia’s wedding held on 20th of October 2012! They wanted to get married in somewhere far away from the hustle and bustle of city life of London and the choose beauty of Florence in Tuscany and I’m pleased to share with you these and elegant wedding’s shots of talented destination photographer Ekaterina Mukhina.
A lot of inspiring details from feathers on bride’s wedding dress from Italian fashion designer Alberta Ferretti to stunning arch of roses and ivy, to gorgeous David English roses of hand-tied bouquet, elegant centerpieces of ivory and peach color palette of english roses and ivory freesias onto fish ball.
Mikhail Zelman and Yulia Guseva are originally from Moscow but they live in London, they wanted an intimate ceremony at Renaissance’s garden of Gherardesca inside Four Seasons Hotel in Florence and reception for 120 guest at Ball Room of St. Regis Hotel.
From the Bride… Best moment of the day was the exchange of vows and rings with my now husband, Mikhail. A profoundly touching moment. I couldn’t hold back the tears of joy as we were saying words of love to each other, with our families by our side. My father walked me down the aisle to Paul McCartney’s ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’, and of Mikhail best moment when we danced our first dance to Cat Powers ‘Sea of Love’ .
