Well, for starters, there are SO many other options you can choose from. If you’re not a creative soul, then don’t fear, because other people are, and thanks to the glorious thing called the Internet, you can take inspo from all of their fabulous ideas.

We moved the ceremony backdrop over to the lake and I litterally could have charged admittance, they came running. I saw it in all the women's eyes, the perfect photo opportunity. They came, they selfied, they loved

??☁Варвара и Степан видели свою церемонию максимально природной и лаконичной.  Мы предложили невесомую цветочную "вышивку", которая как будто повисла в воздухе. Тем самым мы не нарушили естественность пейзажа, давая возможность гостям любоваться красивым видом на Сенежское озеро.? ________________ ??☁Varvara and Stepan saw their ceremony as natural and laconic as possible. We suggested a delicate floral «embroidery», that seemed to be suspended in the air. We highlighted the natural landscape, allowing guests to admire the beautiful view of Lake Senezh.?

Соня и Вова познакомились много лет назад. Когда Вова увидел её впервые, он сказал, хоть тогда и в шутку, что женится на ней, когда она станет взрослой? . Спустя годы они начали встречаться и однажды, спускаясь по лыжному склону в страшный снегопад, Вова притворился, что упал, а когда Соня подъехала к нему, сделал ей предложение? . История любви Сони и Вовы такая трогательная и романтичная,до мурашек! Поэтому во время церемонии ведущий рассказал ее гостям, а затем ребята обменялись конвертами и вслух прочитали клятвы, написанные ими друг для друга. Это стало по-настоящему трепетным и таким нежным моментом, когда слезы не могли сдержать ни гости, ни молодожёны, ни организаторы! .

“Making History” ‘The decision to elope in Fiji started as kind of a dream and a ‘what if’. We were driving home one day after talking with family about having a traditional wedding when we both looked at each other and realized that a traditional wedding wasn't really what we both wanted deep down inside. It wasn’t a hard decision to make but choosing a destination elopement location was! So we decided to write down a wish list of the top 3 countries that we’d love to get married at. Foster made use of all of his 3 choices but I only chose 1…Fiji, and the rest as they say is history.’ Cali cool kids Stephanie and Foster, setting solid foundations. #fretland18 … Styling by @gittelaulaukama Gown by: @dreamersandlovers_
