Russian Winter Wedding Creative Shoot

ALSO FILED UNDER > Swish Loves This!

Planned, designed and styled by Amanda Cowley Sweet Events and inspired by the Sochi Winter Olympics, a team of uber talented local wedding vendors pulled out all the stops envisioning this Russian themed 'Winter Ballerina' wedding!

Russia. Winter. Ballerinas. What more could you ask for!?

On a cold winter's day, along the shore of a very frozen Niagara River  JF Hannigan Photography captured the blistery cold day perfectly!

With the endless inspiration that comes to mind when one thinks of Russia, the team incorporated countless magical details to create design worthy of its own Olympic event!

Starting with a feminine palette of blush pink, frosted whites and silvery powder blue, Lush Florals and Events added hits of deep ruby red which gave all of the florals a rich boldness that helped make everything that surrounded them perfectly pop with colour! From the natural, free-form bridal bouquet, to the eclectic table pieces, the florals helped carry the Russian theme throughout every aspect of this shoot.

A sweet and lovely dessert table created by Candy by Katie showcased all kinds of wintery wonderland treats! Rock candy, caramel corn, powdery donuts, frosty cupcakes and an elegant white-on-white antler adorned cake. To infuse just a touch of 'ballerina-ness' the team created an installation of hanging pointe shoes bursting with flowers!

It wouldn't be a ballerina theme without layers upon layers of tulle, and, with the most perfect gown, the bride was an ethereal vision in white! Her structured high bun wrapped in fishtail braids and a flushed-yet-natural look for makeup was created by Allure Hair and MakeUp. A real life ice princess!

Glass elements and ghost chairs added to the icy-wintery feel, juxtaposed with blush satin linens and warm and cozy faux fur table runner, Gala Decor Wedding and Event Design wove it all together in perfect winter harmony!
