Selene and Marina went for a gorgeous intimate boho wedding with Italian and Russian traditions as one of the brides is Italian, and the second one is Russian.
The gals wanted to keep the wedding small in order to be able to interact as much as possible with all guests also considering that they had a lot of different nationality and languages between all guests. The couple also wanted to make the atmosphere really magical and asked the decorator to base everything on lighting, using all different types like candles (as many as possible), lanterns, candlesticks, torches, lightbulbs. They created all menus, ceremony booklets and guest book themselves. They also made their own photo booth and created the music playlist. For the table name cards and seating chart, they printed Polaroids of the guests (each picture had a meaning toward the guest) so they could find were to seat looking for their picture and each of them could have a memory of our friendship / family trips etc. Celebrating both of their cultures equally in their day was super important to them both. They chose the Italian countryside as their location but mixed this with both traditional Italian and Russian elements in the ceremony.
Marina’s mum decided to add the the wine and the bread ceremonies (a Russian tradition) and it turned out to be perfect. She also surprised everyone by singing a Russian a song that she’d written for the girls.
Both ladies wore complimenting outfits from BHLDN (Selene in a jumpsuit and Marina in a two-piece) and Steve Madden shoes.
