Today’s love story has so much character, class, rock & roll and contrasts which prove once again that true love has no borders or rules.
Julie and Slava seem like they couldn’t be any more different – she is an artistic spirit and a rock band singer turned illustrator from Prague while he was a Technion student who preferred to stick to Science. They met 9 years ago, and although it wasn’t love at first sight, their journey was based on a real friendship which grew into a big love. A year and half and lots of comforting home cooked meals later, Slava got down on one knee and asked Julie to be his forever. She of coursed said YES.
When it came down to planning the wedding, Julie had a very clear vision of how she sees their wedding day. They chose the evergreen magical forest as the concept for their wedding and Julie’s hand and personal touch was present in every small detail. From the invitations she drew by hand, down to the centerpiece arrangements. Countless candles accompanied by acorns, forest moss and snow white cotton, which she literally and carefully picked herself.
Their entire day was pretty calm and casual as Julie did her own hair and makeup while Slava was in the kitchen cooking for the wedding party. Having completed their preparation, with a fashionable delay, they took off for the pre-wedding photoshoot. It naturally took place at a nature reserve which set the perfect background with different curious trees and romantic nukes and crannies.
The wedding gown was an exact reflection of Julie’s personality. She had the dress tailored according to her own design. It had clean geometric lines, a skirt made of silk taffeta, an oversized bow and nonchalant pockets. The groom’s suit perfectly complemented the color theme while he was wearing a navy blue suit paired with a bow tie.
Even their choice of songs was a combination of forestry magic and rock & roll as they chose an Arctic Monkeys song to lead them down the aisle and the sounds of “The Beauty and the beast” as the music for their first dance together as husband and wife.
What a way to rock your wedding!
