The topic of this wedding could be When style weds the elegance, thanks to the perfect taste of the bride. And althought the wedding was in Prague in Sept 2010, is still great inspiration for many of our brides.
Maggy and Eric live both in the United States, but Maggy has origins in Polland. The beauty and elegance of Prague was the main reason why to hold their wedding right here. The couple arrived to Prague one year before the wedding to choose the reception venue and meet the vendors. Based on their wishes wse prepared a list of recommended venues and vendors, just the church was done from the beg – their hearts did beat on St. Ludmila church, stunning catholic church. And for the wedding reception won hotel Intercontinental and its restaurant Zlata Praha, because couple wanted to offer their guests combination of a great food and amazing view.
We all knew that even if t rains, we will still be able to enjoy amazing view of Prague. Which unfortunatelly really happened, as the weather wasn´t nice on that day…
Maggy chose vintage chic theme, which was perfectly tailored to the flowers and all decor, like broches, tableclothes, china, and frames that were used not only for the pictures of both families, but also for the table names. All this together reflected old world and glamour of Prague, cream colour was accompanied by light pale pink.
When choosing her dress, Maggy was also inspired by vintage style, her lace cream colour dress were pefect with long cathedral veil, vintage brooch on the dress as in the hair, as well as earings. All bridesmaids were dressed in amazing long pink dresses, again accompanied by vintage necklasses, pearls and brooches, that Maggy bought online and were also used in all bridal and bridesmaids bouquets. Stylist put fresh flowers into bridemsaid´s hair and little flowergirl was pleased by a wreath and basket with rose petals.
To find the right outfit for groom was easier – he, best man and groomsmen all wore classic black suit with white shirts and creamy ties. To match the style with dominant pink, Eric got from ?aggy cool pink socks, which played its role at a few pictures .
All the flowers and decor was absolutelly stunning, as Maggy took so much effort and spend so much time on it. Bridal bouquet was in romantic style, made from english and traditional roses and peonies, accompanied by a greenery. Bridesmaids worn bouquets made from pale pink and cream roses, accompanied by hydrangea and greenery. Eric wore pale pink corsage, bet men, groomsman and both fathers got cream to be slightly different.
Almost 70 wedidng guests met at hotel Inrtercontinental for a glass of champagne before the ceremony and escorted to the church by minibuses. Black and white limo was prepared for groom and his party and also for bridal party. Maggy with her parents took her way to the church in chic historical Rolls royce.
All got seated, nervous groom standing at the oltar with best men – wedding ceremony could begin. By the choir song entered first flowr girls, bridesmaids and as last bride with her father. Traditional catholic ceremony was captured by cameraman and 2 photogrpahers, who of course captured since the morning all important moments.
Church was also decorated very elegant and stylish – both sides of the aisle were sprinkled by white rose petals and bordered by tall cylinders with floating candles. Just to put water into the vases took hours…Cornets with rose petals were thrown to the newlyweds when they left the church…
As the weather was against us, we moved short after the ceremony to the boat, where guests enjoyed 2 hours cruise, drinks, canapees and also tallented pianist. Maggy and Eric did enjoy in the meantime romantic photosession with great photographer Stepan Vrzala. The great advantage was the presence of 2 photographers, one was always with the couple and the other one captured all other guests and moments.
All the guests were totally amazed when entered to the restaurant Zlata Praha. Nobody did expect such a great view! Maggy asked florist to creat a cushion from hydrangeas, on which we put name tags. Tall vase with orchids was at the entrance together with wedding photos of both parents and Maggy also wished wish tree – guests wrote their messages to the little cards which were tied on a tall branch in a vase. Romantic atmosphere was also maken by bird cage for cards.
Wedding cocktail was held on the terrace, where canapees, champagne, italian wine and cocktails were served. The paernts of bride welcomed newlyweds by a traditional polish costum – offered them shot of water and fresh bread to keep their modesty.
Pretty unattractive marquee got totally different look by using drapings, created into the lounge area. Draping was also used inside the restaurant to cover wooden wall that didn´t match the overall design. Ntohing was given to an acident, everything was perfectly planned into smallest detail. Box with pashminas was prepared for ladies for a cold, we put to the toilets necessary things like deodorants, chewing gumms, combs, hair sprays, but also dress cleaners in case of any accident.
After the welcome drink guests were seated at their tables, which were lovely decorated by vases with fresh cut flowers and lots of candles. Guests were seated at the round tables for 8, newlyweds had their own table just for two of them.
After the speaches starters arrived (smoked salmon on a lettuce bad), followed by dumpkin soup wth organic yoghurt and then sorbet from green apple. As a main course guests could choose between cock on a red wine with butter gnochi and raisins, Fillet mignon with garden vegetabls, mashed potatoes and vegetable chips or grilled seabass marinated in pastiss, baked fennel cake, lobster butter sauce and grilled shalotte. Romantic atmosphere was underlined by pianist.
Wedding cake was amazing – 5 layers, with lots of fresh flowers between. Each layer had a different taste – chocolate with raspberries, vanilla with fresh strawberries, lemon sponge cake, nut cake and chocolate with ganache.
Wedding band commenced with a first dance, followed by other/father dance and continued for a few more hours. Each leaving guest got a paper box which could fill with sweets from the dessert bar. There were lots of sweets like macarons, chocolate pralines etc.
We are still in touch with Maggy and Eric, their wedding was presented in a few magazines and we are very proud to show it also to you.
