Sochi Russia Wedding Shoot

Sochi Russia Wedding Shoot.

Sochi is often called the “unofficial summer capital” of Russia, but this styled shoot at the Metallurg Sanatorium gives us vibes of springtime and old world charm. Gentle sunlight, plush gardens and baroque-style buildings combine for a romantic setting that seems worlds away from the region’s popular beaches and resorts.

Blush tones, gold accents and a hand-drawn portrait of the location set the scene. And classic roses appeal to the timeless ambiance of the shoot.

The bride looks elegant in a billowy, flowing gown with a low back. She accessorizes with statement earrings; a loose, low updo with dainty floral details; and a unique bouquet of assorted varieties of pink and white roses, baby eucalyptus and assorted greenery.

The evergreen-park that surrounds the property provides an idyllic backdrop to the couple’s experience.

Blush silk ribbons foster softness to the rugged and worn architecture and a petite two-tier cake with a ribbon detail is a lovely way to celebrate this romantic union.
