“Re­mem­ber the day is just a day. The real rea­son for cel­e­bra­tion is the new life you and your part­ner are be­gin­ning to­gether.”

Inside Weddings - - Doctor’s Orders -

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.
