A love story that took this adorable duo from Russia to Florida and then to “I do”, this wedding is not only beautiful, but so incredibly special too. Of course, it was planned to perfection by Serene Occasions with gorgeous florals from Floral by the sea, but it’s the love in all the images from Amanda Suanne that really shines through, and how can you not love that?

From The Bride…My husband and I met in summer of 2008 in a little city of Omaha. Both being from Russia, it took us to go across the globe to find each other. We worked together for several weeks before he finally found the courage to ask me out. Several dates later and many romantic nights, our relationship grew into something bigger than what we expected. A few years later, he proposed to me on the Skywalk at The Grand Canyon, my favorite place in the whole world. And here we are today – married and ready to write a new page in the book of our lives.
Our wedding preparation began last summer. We chose a classic combination of gray and pink and followed the concept through entire wedding including the bridal party and color of the cocktails. At first glance it seemed like an easy task, my assumptions were far from reality. Hundreds of hours were spent on trying to find the best photographer, my dream come true reception and ceremony venues as well as other routine but necessary pieces of one giant puzzle called, the wedding.
The most difficult challenge was finding the dress of my dreams made by my favorite designer – Vera Wang. Trying to fit this beautiful dress that I dreamed of ever since I was a teenager into a budget was not easy but we did it! After countless hours spent in numerous stores with my parents and friends, here I’m, in my dream dress with my incredible husband!!! The best part of the wedding – surprise song from my husband and surprise video from our friends. It was so sweet! You can see the picture below.
