Surrounded by the view of Manhattan rooftops, Alla & Sasha got married in a very private, family only, ceremony. It was short, sweet and to the point :).
We loved their huppah, which was painted by their family! They also had the most adorable flower girls, who we loved chasing around and photographing throughout the day 🙂
Alla & Sasha share a lot of mutual friends with us, so going to their wedding and seeing so many beautiful and familiar faces was a joy – we certainly felt like we were truly a part of the day and got to not only capture the fun, but be a part of it!!!
One of the flower girls was soooo fascinated by the high heels – wonder how long it will take her to steal a pair from mom? 😉
A bit stereotypical but … Russian weddings just HAVE to have some vodka 🙂
Some folks start practicing their couple dances early! … by the time Prom rolls around, they will be pros 😉
One of the highlights of this specific crowd is a tradition they have for milestone events. Friends and family write a little satirical show, and put on a performance – in Russian called “Kapustnik” which showcases the relationship in a very humorous way, basically making borderline brutal fun of the happy couple 🙂 – I still wish I had an audio recording of that – it was hysterically funny 🙂
