It’s almost hard to comprehend the elegance in this Russian styled shoot. The graceful and polished fashion matched with the awe-inspiring location is breathtaking and inspiring. And a handsome couple brings the entire experience to life. An ornate gold ring is the perfect starting point for this styled shoot.
It’s displayed with an elegant and unique invitation suite, created with gold calligraphy and sealed with a gold wax stamp.
The color palette features cream, blush, green, and light purple and all of this can be seen in the bride’s bouquet. With a textured arrangement of roses, carnations, veronica, greenery and more, all of the colors tie in seamlessly with the rest of the shoot.
The bride dons a few looks in this shoot to showcase how different options work within the same vision. This look features a simple A-line gown and a unique floral headband. Her hair is curled and styled down for a whimsical appearance.
The bride’s graceful style even appears to soften the look of the stone steps for which she sits.
The groom is dapper in a light blue tuxedo with a dark blue bow tie. A flash of his handsome smile is the only accessory he needs.
The bride wears a second look, a ball gown that features a tulle skirt and a lovely sheer jacket.
Her hair is pulled up into a sophisticated updo and embellished with a small gold headpiece. The back of her jacket exhibits beautiful floral and beaded detail.
They make their way to the grounds where they stand beneath a tree beautified with a swag of fabric. This ideal ceremony spot features a charming background.
For a traditional touch, the bride wears a long veil to cover her face. The veil’s length is unique and different.
The cake is almost too pretty to eat. It features three white tiers with a ribbon tied at the center. It’s displayed on a gold cake stand, held up by a white table with a swath of pink fabric.
The last few details, such as the cake and the gold candelabra, bring the entire shoot full circle. As the daylight begins to fade, the bride’s face is illuminated with candlelight, bringing forth a romantic and radiant glow.
With a cohesive color palette, this styled shoot allows us to see the best of both worlds: a grand venue with tall columns and fine architecture, and an outdoor scene with a bucolic ambiance. Either way, it's a passport to the gorgeous wedding possibilities in beautiful Russia.
