Traditional wedding with European flair

Natalia and Michal’s Illinois wedding perfectly blended cultural traditions with modern elegance. The amazing Yaneck of WASIO Photography gave us a behind-the-scenes peek at the the sweet “first look” the couple shared before the wedding:

“He was standing at the end of the staircase with his back turned away from the stairs. His heart was beating fast and he had a big smile on his face. She was walking down the stairs anxious to see her soon-to-be husband. She gets to the bottom of the stairs and he anxiously turns around before she can tap him on the shoulder. Awed by his gorgeous soon-to-be wife, they share their first kiss of the day.”

An elegant Rolls Royce whisked the couple away to their ceremony. Throughout the wedding day, a highlander band followed the couple performing traditional folk music. Guests took shots of homemade pear and plum vodka before they could enter the reception, and enjoyed bottles of vodka and champagne as favors at each table.  The guests also indulged in a sausage bar and wide array of desserts. Sounds like our kind of party!
