For their wedding, Nikita and Kate wanted to recreate the location where they got engaged – in the Alps atop Mont Blanc. No small feat, for sure, but they were able to accomplish their goal spectacularly, with the help of some amazing planners and photographer Sergey Lapkovsky capturing it all on film. Let these photos serve as inspiration for you as to how to use a beautiful location, elegant color choices “misty gray color theme” and attention to detail to create the atmosphere and the wedding of your dreams.
Kate explained that she wanted her wedding to be “calm and unique, surrounded by water and woods.” She chose a quaint mountain cabin that offered plenty of natural wood architecture, where she was able to get ready in the quiet still of the morning with nothing but the birds singing and the wind through the trees as her soundtrack. Perfectly meditative and serene on her special day!
The photographer captured the super tall pine trees in a way that give the photo album a celestial quality. And that dress! Amazing. The misty gray colour and the breezy light, draping fabric make Kate look like an angel floating in the clouds! And she matches perfectly with the natural hues around her as she and Nikita stroll through the scrub brush before the ceremony. The bridesmaids are in shades of the same misty gray and a complimentary sage green, while the men are in blue-gray tones. And the same cloud gray chiffon drapery as the altar for their ceremony is even more heavenly.
Be sure to check out all the rustic details, from the wood etched placecards to the birch-wood style cake, in this amazing wedding photos from photographer Sergey Lapkovsky!
From the bride…Nikita proposed to me in the most romantic way place ever! It happened during our holidays in the Alps, on the top of Mont Blanc. I was just learning to skate and it wasn’t easy for me but it was absolutely worth it! When we just started to prepare for the wedding we didn’t know where to start but we found great wedding planners who helped us a lot! We spent a lot of time thinking, creating and exchanging ideas, choosing, preparing…But it was a real pleasure for us! We wanted to celebrate our wedding in a beautiful place, very calm and unique, surrounded by water and woods and finally we found it!
As for the flowers and décor, we wanted something very simple but stylish, something that is very close to nature, something that could remind us about the Alps. So we combined elements from rustic, eco and boho styles. We tried to pay attention to every small detail! These details, such as different wood gifts for our guests, stationary, the lights, wooden boards definitely made the whole romantic atmosphere.
We also thought about unique dresses and suits for our bridesmaids and groom’s best friends that would be in one style and our wedding colors. They all were custom made. The ceremony was held in a wonderful place, surrounded by pines. The reception was full of warm words, crazy dances and good music performed by our amazing band. At the end of our dinner party we hand a really nice and delicious wedding cake in rustic style and amazing fireworks!
