I sure have some gorgeous eye-candy for you with this stunning wedding! For more photos of Jessica + Slava’s romantic fairytale wedding check out their feature on Style Me Pretty.
Slava was raised in Moscow and Jessica was raised in the Seattle area. Their paths crossed as a result of their passion for ballroom dancing and now they are dancing professionally as award-winning dance partners. After their engagement, they decided to move to Seattle from California so Jessica could be near her family and proceeded on an incredible journey, opening a new dance studio while creating a life and home together.
For their wedding, Jessica & Slava wanted a intimate, memorable affair with their closest family and friends. They both really loved the romantic, classic European styles and selected Thornewood Castle as the backdrop for their personal fairy tale. Jessica loves feminine details and chose a color palette of light pink, blush, champagne, and ivory.
Their intimate ceremony was held in the picturesque sunken garden surrounded by roses and hydrangea bushes. Jessica walked down a very long aisle on a carpet of rose petals before they said their “I Do’s” under a gorgeous floral arch with a stunning chandelier. One of my favorite personal touches in the ceremony space was the custom-made banners for each family crest that hung on the castle towers on either side of the ceremony space, not only did they fit the fairy tale theme perfectly but it also tied in their family heritages which are extremely important to Jessica and Slava.
Aria Style created the perfect romantic ambiance for the ceremony and reception with hundreds of roses and lush floral arrangements.
I loved the design that we did with the tables, complete with blush pink linen layered with lace, vintage dishes, menus tied with lace and ribbon, tables named after ballroom dances, and drop-dead-gorgeous centerpieces!
The reception was filled with lots of love and laughter, champagne in abundance, delicious food, and of course plenty of dancing. To end the evening, Jessica and Slava departed in a vintage blue Lincoln Continental Convertible after being showered with rose petals by their family and friends. It was truly a modern day fairy tale!
Congratulations, Jessica + Slava! May your years together be filled with love, dancing, and enchantment!
