On the day of the wedding, the couple shopped in their old homes and were surrounded by their beloved bridal wedding reception. Victoria chose a stunning Calathea Gown by Alena Leena, the bridal house located in Ukraine. The country’s ongoing conflict caused an interruption in production for a short period; however, work was resumed just in time for Victoria to put on the gown she had always wanted to wear. The dress has been made across the world by a team from Ukraine who live in the midst of conflicts and war. Victoria was thrilled to wear a clothing with this amazing story.
After arriving at the Harding Waterfront Estate, she could not wait to wait for Nico to take a look at her in her gown. The couple planned a moment of privacy ahead of the wedding for their first appearance. The moment was extremely emotional for them both when they shared a tearful hug. It’s a sweet memory they’ll treasure for the rest of their lives.
The ceremony outside was also emotional, and the couple was being surrounded by their loved ones. The grounds of the estate made the perfect backdrop for their vows that were personalized, and brought tears to everyone who was present.
The party continued all evening with a lavish reception, which included delicious dishes and beautiful flowers carefully arranged with the help of Plush Flowers. An enjoyable present for the guests an on-the-go Espresso Bar that was thoughtfully provided by Espresso Uno that served steaming cups of cappuccinos decorated with delicate heart-shaped latte art as well as imprinted motifs. In keeping with the couple’s preferred style of wedding, Modern & Minimalist, the reception was decorated with a monochromatic color scheme of white and black, highlighted by elegant greenery. Candles emitted an elegant glow, filling the air with magic.
So, in awe of affection, Victoria and Nico embarked on their journey together as a couple. Their wedding at the Harding Waterfront Estate was an unforgettable celebration, a testimony to their unwavering love and an affirmation of the extraordinary beauty of the shared moments.
