The wedding day began with a picturesque countryside view of the lake from the terrace of the groom’s home. The groom had a childhood dream which he brought to life at the wedding. He and all his male friends sported stylishly groomed mustaches, which added a fun and unique touch to the evening party.
During our first meeting with the bride and groom, Julien and Alyona, we explored various location options for their wedding in Ukraine. When they mentioned their countryside home outside Kyiv, we were immediately intrigued and decided to explore the idea further.
Given our experience in transforming diverse venues into beautiful wedding locations, we saw great potential in their backyard. Together, we worked to create an original and unique concept that perfectly captured the couple’s vision for their special day.
As wedding planners, we support the format of having the wedding ceremony hosted by a family member or friend who has at least minimal experience of speech giving in front of an audience. The ceremony becomes more personal and cozy, especially when the host knows the couple’s story well. At one of our weddings, the ceremony was conducted in both French and Ukrainian by the bride’s sister, adding an extra special touch to the day.
We kicked off the festivities with a traditional sunset dinner catered by our partners, followed by a high-energy DJ set that kept the party going until the early hours of the morning.
