I have some super beautiful international features to share with you and there just are not enough Saturdays. So today I couldn’t resist sharing this super beautiful wedding in Lithuania.
Deimante and Gytenis wanted an intimate town hall wedding with a coca cola red theme. There was a stunning red Dahlia bouquet and pops of red throughout the day.
Deimante looked so very beautiful in a chic dress with her hair curled to perfection while Gytenis donned a sharp suit. I so love the romantic first look and the scrumptious looking cakes.
Thanks so very much to Kokkinofoto Photography for sharing their wonderful images with us today.
From the bride…
“9 years ago one passionate kiss changed lives of two young classmates. The chemical reaction of love took place…
Gytenis proposed me to become his wife while we were walking in the forest, and snow was falling. After all we were thinking about our wedding but it was difficult to start planning.
Only next winter we decided to have our BIG DAY. The date of our wedding had been dictated by one restaurant schedule (later we had chosen other restaurant).
Unfortunately, we had told about wedding to our relatives, friends and acquaintances and they confused us by their advises (how wedding party should go, how prepare for it, flowers, music, food, rings etc).
Many blogs, magazines we had read to decide what kind of wedding we want. Once, I was reading some articles in Vogue and I saw the beautiful bouquet of purple dahlias and I had found the brilliant idea: “For those who have no interest in planning a wedding months in advance, City Hall is the classic answer.“
So, we had decided to arrange kind of small (32 guests) wedding. In this case, it’s all about ease, so rather than choosing a tulle or lace number, look for a simple, sophisticated dress. An intimate gathering of only the very closest friends and family members. The most important thing is to keep the mood laid-back, uncomplicated, and personal.
The morning of BIG DAY dawned marvellous: sun was shining, we were enjoying every moment of being together, drinking tea, discussing. And than it was time to start preparing for our BIG DAY. I was preparing in Kukla Beauty BOX (they were responsible for my image) and Gytenis get dressed in hotel room.
When we had got ready the photographers (Kokkino-Foto) arranged date for us. When Gytenis turned and looked up, I felt like I am a little girl in fairytale who met her prince. I can‘t describe that feeling when you see your man‘s eyes and they say “baby, you look wonderful“.
After all we had photoshoot, all photoshooting time we were laughing, because we were so happy – sun was shining, sky was blue, people around us were smiling and we were together, and after 9 years we were in love and passion…
The wedding ceremony like the rest of the day was perfect – beautiful, personal, simple and light. After the ceremony we spent about 2 hours with our friends, relatives and acquaintances who came to congratulate us in Lukiškių square near the church.
The reception we hosted in small yard of restaurant “California Gourmet“: dinner with our relatives and closest friends, dancing, music (Chubby Checker “Let‘s Twist Again; Cher “Walking in Memfis“; Queen “Crazy Little Thing Called Love“ etc) – everything we both dreamed. All evening we were kissing, laughing and dancing.
Unfortunately, that marvellous day ended so quickly. Next day we and our relatives were in our small flat: eating pizzas and cakes, and talking about OUR AMAZING BIG DAY.”
