You know when you say “love at first sight”? It doesn’t happen quite often but I just felt in love with the shootings of Stepan Vrzala! I love his style, the moments he’s able to capture, the light and the contrast of the photos, his attention to event design details. Well, I’m so honoured and pleased to post one of his shootings on my blog and I’m sure that you will be amazed too by this country chic style wedding.
A simple and stylish design, with romanticism and fun are the keywords. The bride and the groom decided to cuddle their guests by always choosing “homemade” products, from the fresh lemonade as welcome to the honey as a wedding favor and the treatments of the dessert buffet. A barn became the perfect setting for the reception: vintage details, candles and floral centerpieces were the essential elements of the design. Nothing more to say: enjoy the photos of this splendid country chic wedding organised by White Agency.
From White Agency:
Martina & Chris’s wedding was every wedding planner’s dream come true. It was a perfect cocktail of Italian passion, Canadian humor and the best of Czech. Martina & Chris are from Canada, with roots in Italy and the Czech Republic. Nearly 90 weddings guests flew in for their June wedding from around the world.
Since Martina & Chris have both strong connections with the Czech Republic, having their wedding here was a natural choice. They knew they wanted a luxury barn wedding not far from Prague and The Stork’s Nest farm we recommended met all their requirements. Personally, we love this venue so much, that we secretly want to move there. As the farm’s logo says, it truly is “A place with a special spirit”. A special spirit was with us since the early morning when Martina started her wedding day with a bit yoga by the lake. Watching Martina from the distance calmly breathing and performing the most incredible yoga poses (Martina is a yoga teacher) it felt like the buzz of the wedding preparations has stopped for a minute.
It was a hot summer day and the guests were refreshed by home made lemonades before the ceremony. Everyone walking together to the ceremony spot with the groom holding his parents hands leading the procession was one of our favorite moments of the day.
The ceremony spot underneath a tree was magical. Martina, looking oh-so-pretty in her boho wedding dress and flowy hairstyle walked down to a Rolling Stones song “She’s a rainbow” sang by a live band. Well, there is another moment of the day that will stick with us for a while.
The theme of the wedding was a Country chic elegance and colours were white, pale pink, peachy and “eucalyptus” green shades with golden and silver accessories. There was lot of wood, beautiful lace, vintage frames, succulents and a gorgeous lighting. Both natural (just look at the photos) and artificial. Vintage glowing chandelier floating above the sweethearts dinner was such a perfect touch. Martina & Chris are not only a stunning couple but they obviously know how to throw a party. One of the best wedding idea ever is to start off the wedding reception with dancing. Why to wait till the end of the meal! The dance with all the guests (A little party never killed nobody) kicked the party off in a style. Despite the reception tables in the barn looked amazing decorated with eucalyptus wreaths and mix of flowers with peonies being the dominant flower, the newlyweds did not want for their guests to be sitting for too long.
We loved everything about this truly boho wedding. The dances, the little favours for the guests (personalized home made local honey and strong Czech liqueur Slivovice), guests having so much fun taking pictures in a photo booth, the cake (oh my, the cake!), the amazing sun-set light. The Johnny Cash song the band played during the ceremony. The Groomsmen matching socks. Cute home-made mascarpone jars for the sweetbar. The fact that this amazing group of people met during several pre-wedding events to enjoy more time together- one of them taking place in a Prague vineyard. Most of all we loved that the Bride and Groom looked really really happy on their wedding day.
