“Remember the day is just a day. The real reason for celebration is the new life you and your partner are beginning together.”
Wearing a sophisticated beaded gown with a deep V-neckline and long lace sleeves, Ludmilla arrived at the dock adjacent to their seaside venue to meet her beloved for their “first look.” Edouard wore a smart black tuxedo that complemented the attire of the wedding party and contrasted his bride’s ensemble beautifully. “Standing there waiting to see my wife is a memory I’ll never forget,” the groom describes. “I was excited, anxious, reflective, and ecstatic all in one.”
For the ceremony, two adorable flower girls dressed in fluffy lilac frocks and plum floral wreaths sprinkled flowers down the aisleway. Ludmilla and Edouard exchanged vows in front of a stunning arbor created from a blend of fresh hydrangeas and roses in a pretty pattern of pink, violet, lavender, and ivory. The structure showcased a unique backdrop: the poem “I Will Be Here” by Steven Curtis Chapman printed in large eggplant-hued font.
The newlyweds gathered with all their loved ones for a scrumptious dinner and a night of revelry. Tablescapes were kept clean and classic, featuring silk-satin purple linens and dark orchidcolored menu cards highlighting the fare. Tall centerpieces were lusciously filled with magenta, mauve, periwinkle, and violet florals. The favored hue also made a lovely appearance in the fourtiered confection boasting hand-painted blossoms.
