From The Couple…The reason for the shooting was our love story , one year ago we met .. It was love at first sight! We spent a whole day together : a lot of laughing , walking and holding hands .. And exactly one year later decided to memorializing the day.

I guess everyone has their favorite spot, where you forget about everything, a place where time stops .. Pavlovsk Park – is our soul, we are in love with each meter of this magical place! We decided to take on the background of the colonnade of Apollo, which is the absolute perfection of the art …

Shades of gray haze, saturated blue and pale blue perfectly fit into the overall mood of our shooting. I really wanted to show the elegance, and at the same time, ordinary negligence, elegance and tenderness. Girls understand me perfectly and made our shoot stunningly delicate, harmonious and sophisticated ..

From Lena KozhinaWhen we met with the couple for the first time, we immediately paid attention to Dima’s behavior towards Julia. There was a feeling of tenderness and awe, and we immediately wanted to recreate this atmosphere of love, care and warmth on their Big Day.

Later, when we had chosen a green meadow and an uncovered pavilion overlooking a lake as the project site, it only highlighted a light summer mood with colorful florals and a great number of natural woods. The name of the site is Fox Lodge and peach-orange color, as one of the Bride’s favorites, set the tone for the whole design – from the invitations, in which we used images of fox cubs to elements of serving guest tables and other decorative elements with the corresponding bright accents.

As for us, it was very important to preserve delicacy and elegance of the holiday, elegance of the design. We have achieved this by means of interesting, thoughtful details and, of course, touching and lovely images of couple. Even the color of lemonade, which can help guests to refresh themselves on this hot summer day, was chosen to match the entire decor. All this helped to keep a memory so special for the day, a celebration of their feelings, their gentle love for each other.

High Fashion Russian Wedding

I love a bride who can set the style bar high, and believe it or not, this particular beauty based her entire wedding design off a Dolce & Gabbana fashion show. Bursting with avant garde details and one amaaazing custom gown, I guarantee this wedding photographed by Lena Kozhina will go down as a day to remember.

From The Bride… Our story began four years ago. We lived in different cities, and didn’t know that our lives would change soon. One day Pavel saw Inna’s photo on the Internet and decided to find her by any means. He found her in St. Petersburg city, where, under the pretext of casting, he met her in a modeling agency.

More than six months passed before Paul decided to make the first step, and all this time I didn’t even know. Over time, he offered to move in Moscow. Moscow became the beginning of a new stage of our relationship, and after a year and a half we got married and had our son Dmitry Pavlovich. When Dmitry Pavlovich had reached the age of 3 months, we went to Petersburg. It was the usual weekend trip for getting away from it all and rest. But one of the evenings I had unexpected surprise – walking along the Griboedov Canal near the Church of the Spilled Blood, Pavel asked to stay for a moment and made me proposal to get married. It was so unexpected and beautiful. I felt delight, little short of shock!

Of course we spent unreal amount of time browsing more than one hundred magazines from all over the world. We listened to endless advice of friends; before we had primary vision of our wedding…it was very difficult to choose the right experts! One by one we set appointments with agencies/photographers/designers and each meeting made me feel stress and anxiety. At the same time I was watching the work of decorators, and found Julia Shakirova. The office of Julia met us with friendly atmosphere. I saw pretty girl with charming smile. Her name was Daria. I started talking and explained her that our wedding is not a standard one. Our wedding would be wedding ceremony and dinner, devoted to this event. I showed her one of the dresses that I liked, it was a dress with classic ivory color, with skirt like foam…I was absolutely in love with the dress from the spring fashion show Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda spring/summer 2014. The collection was luxurious and elegant.

The dress was so beautiful that I just couldn’t think about any other dresses… I knew that the price of it was unrealistic to buy, and it made me sad…At some point my sadness had reached its climax, and I decided that it can be copied and decided to sew it. Julia immediately picked up the idea of spring fashion show Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda, it was obvious that her mind was already painting a picture as it could be. She began to tell about her ideas, how we can make it and how beautiful would it be. I thought we could talk about it endlessly, surely this paved the way for the beginning of our most incredible, the most unpredictable result and risky concept of our celebration.

The second great idea of Julia’s was not just to decorate the room for bride preparation but to decor the bed’s frame with flowers and even to create something like boudoir. So our preparation was in full play…And I, in my turn, found a seamstress for my dress! I had to work hard in order to find the right shade of fabric. We visited several stores, and had to buy flowers from several stores in Moscow and even in China.

Finally, I found the work of Elena Kozhina. She made incredibly sweet photos, with lots of lovely details, the brides in her photos were like angels, and she was able to convey the feelings and the mood. I immediately agreed with her about the meeting and by the end of the meeting we had no doubt that Lena would be our photographer. We we’re so happy to have her capture our day!

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.
