Alina dreamed of an intimate wedding in a beautiful and romantic place, and Sergey did everything he could to make that dream a reality for his bride. They were married on the edge of the sea on the island of Santorini, and it is impossible to look at their photos and not see the unmistakable and contagious happiness of this couple.
From the Bride, Alina:
In each country there are some wedding traditions. In Russia, you are expected to invite all of your acquaintances and relatives to your wedding for an official ceremony where you release birds to the sky and welcome guests with bread and salt.
But I always dreamed of a wedding for two, somewhere on the edge of the earth, without too much fuss. Some people will disagree, but for me the wedding is something personal, almost sacred for the couple.
Our wedding was in Greece, on the island of love, Santorini, in one of the most beautiful places in the world. There, the world feels infinite. The view is filled with small white buildings, cozy “multi-colored beaches”, local wines, and tasteful Greek cuisine. The atmosphere is simply spectacular. Nowhere else have we found such happiness.
One of the most beautiful stories in life is when you meet your person, and he is ready to follow you to the end of the world to make your dreams come true. Sometimes I can’t believe that this fairy tale happened with us. We have our whole lives ahead to share this happiness.
I remember our wedding day and I am dipped into the vast ocean of love, a tender cradle of the universe. This incredible life is our fairy tale.
From the photographer, Yuliya Tsvetkova:
Santorini is paradise for the photographer. But to take pictures in this paradise with happy people in love is a special pleasure. It is surprising when you are present at the wedding of a couple you are just meeting for the first time, yet you can feel as if you were a member of their family. With Alina and Sergey,there was exactly that feeling. At the ceremony, everyone cried, with happiness, of course. Alina and Sergey are a touching, gentle, cheerful couple so in love. They enjoyed this day and shared their happiness with everyone. When I look at their photos, it warms my heart. ”
