an intimate june forest wedding

Phil and Rita were married in the most intimate and beautiful way during a cool day in June in a suburb outside of Moscow. These two really pulled out all the stops as far as wedding details are concerned, setting up a sweetheart table and Rita donned the most stunning gown.

The intimacy of their beautiful day started in the morning as the two got ready to say I Do together. See it all below from Alena Plaks and prepare to be swept off your feet!

From Alena Plaks – “Phil and Rita were married in June and we photo documented their love in a series of shots in a country home in the suburbs of Moscow, Russia. Rita and I have been friends for a long time – as kids we used to play with the dog in the yard and climb onto the rooftop to catch the sunset so it was a true pleasure to capture this wedding day!

Rita and I prepared for this day for a long time, discussing various options for her and Phil’s nuptials and sometimes even calling each other night with a crazy idea. The day of Phil and Rita’s wedding was atmospheric and you could see the love these two have for each other in their eyes.”
