Kira & Misha

Kira's wedding in the Russian countryside is straight out of a fairytale. She and Misha wanted an intimate and serene experience where their families could get to know one another, and we have to say the result is breathtaking! We love the serene countryside setting and the gorgeous way she styled HB6365. Thank you so much to Olga Golovizina for capturing all of it for us! Many congratulations to this beautiful bride and groom~

Saja: How did you meet?

Kira: We met through mutual friends about 6 years ago in Russia. He was living in New York then and came to visit his family. After a year-long distance relationship I came to visit him and we haven't separated since. Saja: How did he propose?

Kira: I was in Miami for Art Basel week with my friends and Misha was staying in New York. On the last day of my trip he wasn’t picking up his phone all day and in the evening when I was at the hotel he called me and said he was downstairs. I was super happy about this surprise but I didn’t see a bigger surprise coming! The next day we drove towards Key West and stayed at a hotel on one of the islands. That night we were having dinner at a restaurant on the beach when they brought a plate with desert and a flower. I was so relaxed and unaware that I didn’t see the ring in the flower right away! I literally noticed it when I already had a desert spoon in my hand ready to try the cake. Next moment Misha was on his knee asking me to marry him.

Saja: Where did the wedding take place? What made you choose there?

Kira: We wanted to do our wedding somewhere quiet and tranquil in Russia with our families and close friends. So we picked a venue in the countryside, literally in the middle of nowhere, with lots of trees, fresh air, stables with horses and a nice restaurant. 

Saja: What was your favorite part of the day?

 My favorite part was the ceremony. We both were super excited about our families meeting each other for the first time and being with us when we said our vows. We haven’t seen some of our guests for two years! So when they all came to congratulate us after we exchanged the rings I just couldn’t believe that it was all real!

Saja: Is there anything you can point out about your picture that we might not have noticed?

 It was the first warm and sunny weekend in two months! Usually summer in Russia isn’t that bad but we got really lucky with the weather (it’s been raining several weeks before and right after the wedding weekend).
