first of all thank you for helping me to plan and organizing this amazing wedding. We enjoyed it so much as well as our guests and they are still saying that this is the best the saw so far.”
Daria & Artem, Moscow
Wedding, July 26th, 2013 - 140 guests
Daria and Artem, both Russian but living in the U.S., decided to get married in Barcelona after years of having spent summers on the Costa Brava.
The bride wanted a sophisticated wedding with a touch of vintage, in lavender, white and silver tones; her most fervent wish was to illuminate the dinner with real crystal chandeliers.
Working from this idea, Yes I do designed a logo with the initials of the couple and picture of a candelabrum on a damask background. Of course, the graphic designer used the tones chosen by the bride and utilized the drawing of the candelabrum as a leitmotif in several different formats.
A mansion steeped in history was chosen as the venue, for both the ceremony and the reception.
At the entrance, the guested were greeted with magnificent horses and women elegantly attired in flamenco costumes. The aperitif was served just in front of the estate and enlivened with Rumba musicians, a photocall and a guest book table featuring vintage books.
The ceremony was held inside the mansion, which was decorated with an impressive flower arcade with a white carpet underneath and rows of White rose petals on either side.
After the ceremony, the guests were led to the lower garden for dinner. It was the first time a dinner had ever been held there. Yes I do came up with the idea and set up a structure covered in ivy with ten crystal teardrop chandeliers and orchids hanging down.
Each chair was covered in tulle and had a place card with the name of the guest on it. The menu card was round and the serviette was tied to a sprig of lavender with a mauve colored ribbon.
During dinner, the guests enjoyed various forms of entertainment: a band from London, some Flamenco dancers and a 12 member musical ensemble from Israel.
The cake was classic American and was decorated in the same tones and with the same motifs used in the rest of the venue.
After dinner, everyone moved inside to where a dessert buffet had been set up, along with a table of coffees and teas; a chill out area with a flowered swing just outside rounded off the after-dinner ambiance.
