royal russian style wedding

Using the colors of the Russian flag: royal blue, red, and white, photographer Ksenia Milushkina and stylist / wedding planner Ulja Stephanova created a jaw-droppingly beautiful, imperial-themed wedding inspiration shoot that harkens back to Russia’s aristocratic background.

The beautiful bride takes center stage in both a royal blue dress complete with lace sleeves and a blue tiara and then a ruby-red dress with yet another impressive set of jewels and a fur stole to pay tribute to Russia’s long winter.

These images call to mind scenes from Anna Karenina and other Slavic classics and each shot couldn’t be more beautiful!
