Olympic Figure Skater Sasha Cohen’s Wedding Album!

Leave it to Olympic medalist, Sasha Cohen to take on the role of “bride” with incredible grace. She wed her love, Tom May oceanside on Cape Cod and the photos by Corinna Raznikov speak for themselves. “Tom and I both love the ocean. We wanted a non-denominational ceremony, something in nature,” Sasha said. “We were overlooking the water and got married just before sunset. It was absolutely lovely.” The Pink Polka Dot brought every detail to life and there’s more to see this way!

From The Pink Polka DotWhen Olympic silver medalist, Alexandra “Sasha” Cohen wed Thomas May, all they truly wanted was “… Something small and charming.” said Sasha Cohen. The New York-based couple chose Cape Cod because their busy schedules made the East Coast more sensible than a location near Cohen’s Southern California roots. They picked a small country club, The Wianno Club, near where May’s parents have a summer house. May’s sister also was married in Cape Cod, so she was able to give some guidance when it came to planning. The guest list totaled 140. There were five bridesmaids, including May’s two sisters, plus the maid of honor, Cohen’s sister, Natasha. Among friends from the skating world were gold medal winner, Evan Lysacek, Tiffany Stiegler Stahl (who was a bridesmaid, just as Cohen had been for her in her 2014 wedding), Jennifer Markham and Christie Baca.

Sasha’s color palette vision was steely silver, muted blues, whites and peaches. She wanted to incorporate vintage, romantic elements as well.

“Karen, our florist, did an amazing job with the arbor, candles and lanterns and rose petals along the aisle leading up to the altar. It was transformed into a vision.” The white and peach florals were absolutely beautiful and helped create a romantic feel in the ballroom. Textured cream linens, lots of candlelight and menu cards with floral accents completed the tables. Lush floral pieces lined the unique horseshoe shaped head table to create an intimate seating arrangement for the wedding party. The escort cards were tied to antique keys and displayed in beautiful boxes of moss for a vintage look. Cohen met May at a birthday party in 2014 through mutual friends in NYC. They got engaged in July 2015 in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

“We explored the beaches of the Cape during the day and then Tom proposed at sunset on a tiny private beach right before we went out to dinner,” Cohen said. They were married by a justice of the peace and said traditional vows. Natasha’s sister read a poem. Cohen’s Galia Lahav-designed dress was beaded with antique-style accents and a dramatic cutout on the back with a brass zipper. One part of the day Cohen will never forget is getting ready to walk down the aisle with her parents. “That was a moment I took for myself – I wanted to really remember how it felt before all the commotion started,” Cohen said. “Our first dance was very special, (as were) the speeches and closing the night with a line of sparklers.” The newlyweds did a traditional first dance to “Stand By Me,” a favorite of May’s.”The lyrics are inspiring and very fitting for a first dance,” Cohen said. “We both felt it was the right message. “We took dance classes before, which was a lot of fun,” she added. “It was slightly choreographed. Tom was nervous. He’s not used to performing in front of people, but it went really well. I have to say the lessons paid off.”

The newlyweds honeymooned in Sydney, Australia and Fiji.”

Mismatched Bridesmaids in Grey for a City Wedding

I can’t think of a more magical city to tie the knot than Boston. Steeped in history and bursting with charm, it’s no wonder Sam and Tim took to Copley Square with their bridal party to kick off their best day ever. See how it all unfolded through the lens of Ashley Largesse.

Ashley Largesse PhotographyWhere do I even begin with these two and their Boston extravaganza-amazingness of a wedding day?! Since Sam and Tim first met in this beloved Massachusetts city, there was no question where they’d celebrate this new chapter of their lives. These two and their bridal squad practically took over Copley Square, strutting their stuff through traffic and cheering en route to the church. It was incredible, which is why half the city stopped to take pictures or join in the fun! The celebration continued nearby at Granite Links Golf Course with a view of the Boston skyline. It was everything perfect from beginning to end – a day full of love galore, happy tears, and pure joy followed by a night packed with emotional moments, beautiful speeches and some real impressive dance moves. Congratulations Sam and Tim!
