Denisa approached me, saying that they had already found a place in Northern Moravia. At first, I was somewhat uncertain and hesitant, because Sobotín is a little out of hand, and we do organize most of our weddings in Prague and Central Bohemia, but in the end, we bit the bullet and started planning. Jirka is a known tennis player, and he spends most of his time on tournaments abroad, this meant we did most of the preparations and planning with Denisa.
The assignment was clear: a romantic and fairytale-like wedding at a Chateau. First, we started designing the wedding concept. I approached the best Slovak florist – Hanka Holdener. Hanka is an immensely talented florist, and her work is breathtaking. We had our first meeting at the Chateau; we worked on the design concept. Soft shades of pastel in combination with golden highlights, everything was supposed to be dreamy, romantic and sweet – one might also describe Denisa as such.
Regarding the wedding design, we also created a set of luxurious printed wedding materials, using a combination of letterpress and steel engraving. We designed the wedding stationery, including the envelope with a floral pattern, an invitation to the banquet, the menus, rolled up name tags, and two large tables with the program and seating order. The invitation was decorated with a monogram of the newly-weds, which we also used later for other small details.
For the ceremony itself, we went for a classic archway, white carpet, and we decorated the aisle. The arrival of the newly-weds was solved quite interestingly; we were told romantic – a horse-drawn carriage. We ended up ordering a carriage for both the bride and the groom.
The first order of the planning process: figure out the banquet that was to take place in a park for 120 guests. We ordered a grand marquee with canopies and a large wooden floor 35x10m. We also had to deal with all of the furniture – we chose an interesting combination of a rectangular board, circular tables, and golden Tiffany chairs. We decorated the tables with a combination of tall and short floral arrangements in a Fine-art style, complemented with candles, base plates, tissues (in a blush shade) and luxurious printed materials.
Great food and fantastic drinks were served at the wedding, fireworks in the evening and the largest surprise of the evening – the groom’s favorite famous band No Name, they created an absolutely fantastic atmosphere. I have to say, organizing this wedding was very hard, the preparations alone took us 48 hours, after which the wedding immediately took place, though everything turned out great in the end and the newly-weds, and their guests, were very pleased.
Dear Svetlanka and Klarka, finally we have a moment to thank you for being part of our big day and what you have done for us. For us, this day was absolutely perfect and we would not change anything at all. We know that behind all of it is a lot of your work, time and organization and we thank you very much for that. All vendors did a great job and the overall organization of the day was astonishing.
