Kae and Dmitiry

Wednesday, July 27, 2011


































There's just something about bloggers: they always have an extra French stripe shirt on hand, they've got an eye for lovely, clever things and they plan one hell of a wedding. Kae, who writes paper morning, is the perfect prototype of a stylish blogger and stunning bride!

A girl after my own heart, the bride had scheduled every detail and booked every vendor months before their wedding. When life threw the couple a major curve ball and they learned both their ceremony location and caterer had double booked them, they chucked their sensible celebration and started planning the dreamy wedding they first imagined, under an oak tree in the middle of a field at the Fort Vancouver Historic Reserve.

The bride wore a gorgeous gown from Pronovias that she tried on and ordered in under an hour at her very first gown appointment. Her bridesmaids wore charcoal dresses from Anthropologie that compliments the groomsmen's dark slacks and vests; Dmitiry wore a matching three piece suit on their big day.

Kat walked down the aisle to the classic "Moon River", a song the couple had hummed to each other countless times during their courtship, and the couple was married beneath a crystal chandelier the bride's father and the groom spent six hours building. The tented reception that followed was cozy, thanks to the 600 glass jars Kae and her mother spent months collecting. Anastasia Marie, who designed the stationery suite, and Flowerbelle, the talented florist, are both close friends of the bride, and gave each aspect of their celebration a personal touch. Svetlana Kopmar catered the intimate reception, and incorporated the couple's favorite foods into the menu. Desserts were homemade by aunts and sister-in-laws, while the stunning four-tier cake was a labor of love by their favorite restaurant, Papa Haydn.

And luckily their photographer, Daniel Usenko, didn't double book this gorgeous couple-the photographs are simply stunning. Thank you to Daniel and Style Me Pretty, where this wedding was first featured, for letting me share this beautiful wedding!

  21. Wow! Now most Bride's would be furious about 2 double bookings, but I admire how they just decided to plan the wedding of their dreams instead!
