With a shared Croatian heritage, this couple wanted to create a wedding that was at once fun, festive, classy and with hints to their cultural background.
And their big day certainly delivered on their vision in every way. From the traditional Croatian “kolo”, or circle folk-dance, performed by a troupe in national costume to the rakija, a traditional clear-coloured brandy-like drink hailing from the Balkans which was served after dinner, continental cues beautifully punctuated the overall classic and chic atmosphere of the wedding celebrations.
The elegant reception, held at The Croatian Club was styled by the talented floral artist Vesna Grasso. Breathtakingly beautiful and dramatic florals brought verve and elegance to these beautiful nuptials. Guest were treated espresso martinis and danced the night away into the small hours.
The bride looked stunning in her custom-made LUOM.O Couture gown and veil. The slinky minimalist wedding gown was paired with custom-made earrings by Tessarella House and designer shoes by G&L shoes. This bride was the epitome of modern glamour.
