Kasia and Antoni – many congratulations! We wish you all the best and thank you for the fantastic atmosphere! Love you guys!!! xoxo
Here are a few words from our Bride to inspire all the brides-to-be!:) Kasia, thank you for sharing this story with us!
“Looking back at the preparations for our wedding, we realize that the time spent planning turned out to be just as special as the day itself.
We both come from Warsaw and because of work we currently live in the beautiful land of tulips, however we wanted to have the wedding at home, in the city closest to our hearts. The best advice we got before the wedding was to focus on things that are most important and the rest will fall into place. One of those things were pictures and as soon as we had a date, we called Dorota & Michał. They had our date free! At the beginning it didn’t matter where the wedding would be, where we would do the reception or what the dress would look like (well actually that always matters J). We knew that whatever we chose we would have great time and that D&M would show everything in the very best way.
Second on the list was THE dress! I had trouble finding something that was very simple yet timeless. I met with Polish designer, Natalia Jaroszewska and she instantly understood my ideas, even though I couldn’t quite visualize them myself. That’s how my wedding dress was born! Pure silk with Swarovski crystals here and there, very feminine and romantic! The colour, a sort of 1950’s Disney Cinderella, added to the modern feel. She also made my beautiful Swarovski headband, which completed the look. The whole experience of choosing a design, fabric and multiple fittings was and continuous to be a very special memory! Natalia was there every step of the way and she was amazing!
Antek became jealous and decided to go for the same experience. He ordered a tailor-made suit by Janusz Bielenia in Warsaw. He looked very handsome;)
Our wedding became a mix of classic and modern, having our ceremony in Warsaw’s Old quarter and then celebrating at Pałac Zamoyskich (Endorfina) in the city centre, and had a very city feel. We chose not to have a traditional sit down dinner, but more of a buffet cocktail style. This worked out to be a perfect choice for our very international reception and everyone could mingle, eat and dance. Endorfina restaurant was an absolute pleasure, perfect mix of classic and modern accents and together with Gosia from G-fiore (thanks for meeting us just few days before the wedding!) we chose very simple decorations, white roses everywhere to match my bouquet and A LOT of candles in simple glass.
With our crazy work schedule we even managed to squeeze in, just 5 days before the wedding, a city engagement session in our beautiful city. Looking at the pictures you would never guess that we had about 10 minutes to prepare and nothing planned but thanks to D&M’s great ideas and positive energy (and a very cute puppy), they captured the emotions we were feeling leading up to the wedding. And the wedding pictures… They speak for themselves: emotion, colour and happiness!
Having Dorota and Michal take our pictures and be with us the whole day was one of the great highlights, thank you both!”
