This wedding with truly a heart-warming story of how the couple met is all about romance, fairy tales and secret gardens

I’m sure that you’ll melt over this absolutely stunning Budapest fairy tale wedding at Brody Studios! Tasha is from Slovenia and Zack is from New York, and she was celebrating her birthday in Florence, Italy, and when she blew out the candles on her cake, she made a wish to meet the man of her dreams. As she did, Zack called out “Happy Birthday” from the other end of the restaurant. They got chatting and the rest is history.

The couple wanted to pick somewhere different for their wedding, so they chose Budapest. Their ‘Secret Garden’ ceremony took place in the garden of a private villa and the reception followed at a rustic ruin pub style building in the center of Budapest. Tasha wanted very boho style florals with lots of wild flowers in her bouquet and arrangements. The building has lots of little rooms, so they wanted to create a different theme in each room—magic, jazz, contemporary dance, operetta singing, casino, and more! The reception was done as a visual fairytale, to express their story through images, sounds and movements, with many various experiences for them and their guests to enjoy.

The wedding was heavy on DIY, the bride has embroidered each guest’s napkin with beadwork insects and their initials as a keepsake, it was a month’s long project that the guests have really appreciated. The couple have also built different decorations, such as clouds on the upper floor where they had their first dance to represent the final part of the fairytale, “cloud 9”. Also since the bride couldn’t find where to buy wedding wands with a copper wire butterflies as she envisioned, the groom has done all of them by hand.
