There’s nothing more stunning than an elegant, classic wedding infused with traditional elements and a dash of glam. Yuliya and Rudik’s beautiful big day encapsulates all of that, and so much more. The couple, who met at a mutual friend’s party and immediately hit off, turned to the brilliant team at Swoon Events to plan their scene-stealing celebration at the gorgeous Arlington Estate.
From the Bride: We met at one of our mutual friends New Year’s party. Neither of us were supposed to be there. He wanted to ask me out at the party. So he spoke with my friend and asked her if she thought it was a good idea, she told him “No, she already told me she likes some Spanish guy at this party!” From that point forward he gave me the cold shoulder. I went up to him to ask why? He said: “Because your friend told me you like some Spanish guy. To which I replied “Spanish guy? Silly you, you’re the spanish guy!”
What made their big day even more special? Yuliya’s entire family came from overseas, some of whom she hadn’t seen for years – all of which made the day that much more memorable. Fortunately the talented lens of Niv Shimshon Photography was on hand to capture every special moment.
Underneath a breathtaking blue sky, and an equally stunning archway decorated with the daintiest of flowers, the couple exchanged vows in front of their family and friends.
Blending old world sophistication with modern glam, the newlyweds’ reception is a sight to behold. A cream palette with metallic touches along with spectacular chandeliers brought just the right amount of grandeur to the night, while dreamy candlelight and crimson-and-pink blooms from Fete Floral & Events added a soft romance to the room. Guests were treated to a divine geometric-shaped cake by Mademoiselle Vanilla, and later danced the night away to the tunes by Party Crew Entertainment.
From the Bride: The best part was seeing everything come together just the way we imagined the whole time. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect wedding day. The highlight for me was our wedding dance. We had a really fun time taking dance lessons, and they totally paid off!
