Anastasia and Ivan met at a birthday party…one that Anastasia initially didn’t want to attend… As it turns out, it was meant to be….Anastasia’s brother persuaded her to go…and at that party she met the love of her life!
This lovable couple tied the knot one beautiful morning in Santorini. They travelled to Greece all the way from Moscow…only because they truly wanted their romantic wedding to take place on this over the top gorgeous Greek island.
Anastasia wanted only one kind of flower for her wedding day: peonies…the absolute most beautiful pink peonies ever! As her wedding photographer Anna Roussos mentioned: “On our last location for the wedding photo shooting, we went totally creative and transformed Anastasia’s bridal bouquet into a gorgeous floral headband!” Amazing!
Ivan proposed to Anastasia, one day after work, when he took her out for a romantic dinner. When they arrived at the restaurant, Anastasia noticed that the table was decorated with rose pedals and candles. Anastasia mentioned: “The waitor brought a covered tray ….I saw between the rose pedals a box with my ring. That is when I remembered that it was exactly our six month anniversary. Naturally I said yes!”
“I wanted the entire wedding decoration to be based on my favorite flowers, peonies. These particular flowers bloom during the first weeks of June. Peonies always remind me of the arrival of summer, a beautiful and joyful period”, said the pretty bride
The wedding ceremony was very emotional. The fortunate guests that attended this wedding witnessed the true love of this couple.
“When it was time to decide where we were going to get married, we could not possibly think of a more romantic place in the entire world”. Anastasia told us.
The bride confessed that she had tried on many wedding dresses before she found the perfect one for her. In her own words: “When I first put on this wedding dress…I did not want to take it off! I honestly felt like a princess!”
This wedding was exactly how Anastasia always dreamt it would be: a fairytale wedding with the man that she is truly and deeply head over heels in love with: her Ivan…
