Melissa & Vladi

I think this wedding is breathtaking- I just adore all of the fabulous details and images. Melissa and Vladi were married and had their reception at Callanwolde on June 7th. What a lovely couple. Melissa had a clear vision for her wedding utilizing bright green, white and black and infusing the wedding with Serbian traditions to honor Vladi's family. If you will recall, it was rather warm out that first weekend in June, so Melissa and Vladi were sure to provide their guests with fans and cool drinks during the ceremony on the lawn. The aisle was decorated with beautiful lanterns at varying heights on mossy pedestals. The ceremony began as each of the guests were pinned with a sprig of Rosemary as they arrived- a Serbian custom in which guests present money {to be given to the bride and groom} to receive the Rosemary. Melissa looked stunning in one of the most beautiful wedding gowns I have seen by Rivini with a matching veil. After the ceremony, guests moved inside the cool air for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres and then were seated in the perfectly color coordinated main room prior to the buffet dinner. Melissa was sure to tie every detail together from the custom made black cake stand to the boxes that held the special Serbian favors. Speaking of cake- guests enjoyed wedding cake as well as a plethora of Serbian desserts provided by Vladi's family members. Guests danced the night away and in Serbian tradition did a circle dance called the "kolo." Melissa and Vladi made a sparkler exit- I just think this picture is so pretty- it looks like they are leaving under fireworks! And leave it to Janet, EJ and the amazing team at Blue World Studios to capture so many beautiful images throughout the day and this picture perfect kiss in their vintage exit car that was a suprise from Melissa's parents.
