Hot Air Balloon Inspiration Shoot

I think we can all agree that pink ombre is amazing.  But add that pink ombre to a whole host of beautiful details orchestrated by an all-star team of vendors, including Maria MunitsynaElena Koshkina and The Big Day Agency, and it’s more than amazing… it’s spectacular.  Think gorgeous fields, lush, romantic florals from First Flower and, of course, sky high balloons.  See it here

From Nadya Kozlova of The Big Day Agency… This shoot has been inspired by the grandeur of the hot air balloons! They are massive, light and graceful at the same time. So we were trying to complement this centerpiece of our shoot with the worthful framework. That’s why we ended up with the classical style and pink ombre colour palette.

We can imagine that this couple escaped from the city to enjoy the last days of summer and to talk about love. The whole concept of the shoot was more of the love confession, so it starts with the handwritten love letter. The text of the letter is the poem of the most famous Russian poet – Alexander Pushkin, it is called The Confession and was written around 1824. This golden period of the Russian history echoes in the beautiful calligraphy, white paper and craft envelope, used in the letter.

The balloon basket is fully coated with peonies, garden roses of the dust-pink colour and hydrangeas! Before inflating the balloon we accidentally decided to cover the technical black handles with the lace, which turned into gorgeous canopy and added even more lightness.

Flower arrangements used in the shoot are as rich & solid as the balloon basket: both bride’s bouquet and table centerpiece are composed of 6 varieties of roses (Pink Piano Roses, David Ostin Keira, Patience & Juliet Roses, Pink O’Hara Roses, Roses Bombastic Spray) & huge number of other beautiful flowers. Classical ottoman and cocktail table with all of those nice details (silver chandeliers, champagne with cut-glass glasses, laces and velvet ribbons, perfect ruffled cake, lanterns) create coziness, even though we are in the middle of the field.

The couple’s style was also thought through. The lady is in the blush pink multilayer Monique Lhuillier wedding gown, finished with sequins. The young man is in his shirt sleeves and bow-tie undone.

The peak of the shoot is of course the balloon voyage. The sunset light steeps the balloon as it lifts and flies higher and higher.

The onshore scene is worth separate reference. The water lily pond is the best background and long delphinium stems compose sophisticated, though simple geometry.

Intimate Picnic Wedding

I’m fully convinced that there’s nothing cooler than a picnic wedding.  Seriously… nothing.  It’s that sort of laid-back meets totally elegant meets fun, family affair that is the perfect way to say I do, in any language.  Think natural, organic stylings crafted by Renata Timerbaeva, perfectly imperfect florals from Daria Dolengovskaya and a whole world of lovely captured by Alina Valitova.  See it all here.

From Renata TimerbaevaThe inspiration for this wedding was a connection with nature, simplicity and natural materials. We wanted to produce an easy and informal atmosphere of picnics and open-air parties.

From the Bride… For a long time I couldn’t understand what type of dress I needed. I searched all of the shops, and purchased and returned every dress. Desperate, I started to search the web and saw a dress I was completely in love with. I ordered it, and it arrived five days before wedding… but it wasn’t my size, so I found a seamstress who made it fit perfectly. There is different story about shoes – I think I tried them on for a week, then for what seemed like my whole life. I trusted everything about the flowers (circlet of flowers, bouquet and boutonniere for Vadim) to magic girl Daria Dolonogova. I didn’t know how everything should look and I just sent her photos of our clothes and explained the style of the wedding.

For our wedding, Daria changed her plans and came earlier from another city. After a sleepless night, she went to the flower base, chose the flowers and created a miracle that we kept in our flat for a week afterwards.

From the beautiful Bride…When we got engaged, we already knew we want to have wedding on the countryside. Our good friends recommended us ‘Oh Marriage!’ wedding planners, and we fully trusted them. First they found an awesome country club with Province style interiors for us. So all together we made a decision to do our dream wedding in this stylistics.

All the decor on our wedding – work of art from Peony studio. I was totally fascinated by Nastya Belik photography works. Everything – the color, the places, and surely decor! Immediately I realized I want her and only her to make pictures of our wedding – her works are so different from any other pictures of local photographers – Nastya works wonders!) As for the decor from Peony studio – everything is oh so beautiful and harmoniously, you just can’t take your eyes off! So I had no doubt they’ll create something brilliant for us!

I was really lucky to meet all those wonderful people – Katya from ‘Oh Marriage!’ wedding planners, girls from Peony studio – Lyuba and Nastya, – I just felt in love with them, and getting prepared to my own wedding was a great pleasure with their help! They were thinking over every single detail of the wedding and sometimes just in time dissuade me from my crazy ideas, so it helps to have the same style throughout the ceremony, and I’m very grateful to them!

We’ve chosen wedding color palette based on country club’s restaurant interiors. Light blue, ivory and beige – everything was created in these shades: from groom’s outfit to cupcakes in candy bar! The second wedding’s leitmotif was flowers of hydrangea in light blue and ivory colors. It was used in my awesome bride’s bouquet, in beautiful decor inside the restaurant and outside at the wedding ceremony area: arch’s decoration, flowers on bicycle’s basket, sweets in candy bar and much more! Also these flowers were used in polygraph – paper with light blue hydrangea print was pasted into crafted envelopes for invitations. The same hydrangea’s print was on seating plan, seating cards and so on.

Overall I think with decorators prom Peony studio help, awesome Nastya Belik pictures and “Oh Marriage!” wedding planners we’ve created the wedding of my dream – so tender end elegant, with a subtle hint of Province. I appreciate it a lot and want to say thank you one more time for dreams come true! For me it was just perfect!
