HOW THEY MET

From Irina – “We met in the beautiful city of Moscow, Russia during my visit in the winter of 2012. It was snowing at that time and everything felt like a winter wonderland. During my trip, we spent hours with each other, from taking long walks in the city with snow all around to traveling to Ukraine by train and touring around other cities by bus. Always getting compliments from strangers that we look good together, we knew there was a connection between us and it was magical!”

HOW HE ASKED

From Irina – “I came to visit Larry in Kiev, Ukraine in the summer of 2013, and we spent the all those months together, again traveling to beautiful cities in Europe, camping, and just enjoying being together. Time flew by so fast and it was eventually time for me to fly back to the United States.

When we got to the airport in Kiev, we were outside for a while since we arrived early, just enjoying the sunrise and telling each other how we’re going to miss one another and that we wished we could stay together. That is when he got on his knee and asked to spend the rest of my life with him and I said ‘yes!’”

THE WEDDING ATTIRE

“For our attire, we wanted something very elegant, glamorous yet romantic, something that would look amazing in photos during the current season and in years to follow. Choosing my elopement dress was similar to choosing any wedding dress I believe, in that I wanted to feel my most beautiful. For that reason, I choose a burgundy satin v-neckline, floor length gown with long sleeves: the Oxblood Manor Gown by Jill Jill Stuart. For the suit, we wanted a classic and timeless look that will look good with the gown and so we choose a navy suit from Nordstrom.”

FAVORITE MEMORIES

“The whole day was a favorite memory! From getting my hair and makeup done to putting on my dress, to the first look.

According to forecasts, the weather seemed to be good, however, on the morning of our special day, it started to rain a bit which became a little stressful thinking the weather might ruin our elopement day and photos. It rained for a while and then went away, yet, when about to start hair and makeup it started to rain once more. We were devastated! Yet with our amazing and down to earth photographer, Christa, assured everything will be okay and we will have the best photos ever – and she was right! The images perfectly capture a day that will be remembered for the rest of our lives!”
