little greece in st. petersburg

From photographer Olesya Ukolova “Imagine sunny Greece with olive groves, soft sea waves, and the warmth of the evening sunset. Our team was inspired by the stunning scenery in Greece and wanted to capture the atmosphere there and place it into St. Petersburg, Russia. We wanted to show brides that you can have a warm, summery wedding even when it’s freezing outside. In fact, when who shot this wedding inspiration shoot blocks of ice sailed by outside on the river!”

“The cold weather outside here in Russia did not frighten us and we basked in the rays of love and tenderness from our young couple. To bring Greece to us we used fresh olive branches, a neutral color palette, Greek destination wedding themed invitations, and a wedding dress perfect for the sun. Our bride’s hair was meant to reflect ocean waves and we kept her look fresh and natural!”
