With their ceremony nestled amid a birch grove and their reception in a greenhouse, Marita and Allan’s late-summer wedding at Siltumnica was as natural as it was glamorous. The bride walked down the grassy aisle to the sound of harps and violins, her glamorous Žanna Klimenko gown and long veil flowing in the wind all the way. After their “I dos,” the couple then made their way into the countryside for portraits with Elina Upmane Photography that looked as if they were stills from a Hollywood classic. We love how the couple integrated touches of glam, vintage decor but kept the overall feel of both the outdoor space and the greenhouse as natural, whimsical, and magical as possible. And the dusty pink and gold hues LayerCake used in the floral design and paper goods made the whole design feel luxuriously romantic.

The most memorable part of the day was the ceremony! It was in the middle of a birch grove and we had a harp and violins playing in the background while I walked toward my husband to be. Emotions took over and happy tears were running down my cheeks. This was the moment we had been dreaming about for so long and, finally, it was happening! And it was just perfect.
We wanted our wedding to be as natural as possible and romantic at the same time. It was easy to choose the vibe as we both wanted the same thing. For us, the most important element was the venue. We wanted nature to be a big part of it and we actually found our venue by accident — but it turned out to be just perfect. It’s a greenhouse in the countryside with lots of flowers and grapes hanging from the rooftop. It was mystical, beautiful, and magical.
For our gifts to each other, I prerecorded a video and had gold-plated, personalized cufflinks made with our date and initials. I am not good at speeches — because I always cry — which is why I made a video where I told him how I feel and how wonderful it was to have found each other. Allan gave me a pearl bracelet!
