It’s the gentle way she has with everything and her ability to be her true self in every circumstance that made her day especially memorable. From the handmaid invitations, to the sweet touch of a sash on her dress, to the branch for the ceremony backdrop that she may or may not have taken off a tree herself . . . her wedding day was truly her own, with her touch in every details. And Rodion made sure to make the most of it for her. When she wanted moss for her center pieces, he went and helped her find some in the redwoods, when she requested a brick wall for her reception backdrop, he build one with her dad. And when the wedding day came he kept asking when Diana would arrive for their first look, because really he couldn’t wait to see his bride, but more so marry her for always! With clouds coming in and leaving over their ceremony site, Rodion and Diana were pronounced husband and wife by a handmade backdrop found in the woods, and almost ran down the aisle from the happiness all around. And when they finally wed he hardly let her go, because with her around, the world is that much sweeter of a place.
Diana and Rod, I’m absolutely honored to have captured the sweetest wedding ever! I wish I could express how happy I am for you two and how much I loved your wedding, being both a photographer and a guest, but this time around I’m not so good with words. I’ll never forget how you two approached me to shoot your wedding and stated that it was your dream for me to photograph it, and you basically left me no choice. Thank you for including me into your lives and letting me in on your wonderful journey. I can’t wait to share more memories with you be at church, on the volleyball field, or in your sweet home over baked goods. I wanted to come up with a new phrase to end this post for you two amazing selves, but love you to pieces is as true as it gets! Yours truly, Yuliya.
Who wouldn’t want to photograph a bridal party made up of past clients and also siblings? Diana is the third sibling I’m privileged to photograph from the Moskalets family, with Marina being one of my first clients, and Aleksey one of my first second shooters and also a groom once himself. Just love them!
