August 31 Wedding: Natasha & Ron

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

I worked on planning every single detail of this wedding with Ron and Natasha (who live in Columbus) and their wonderful parents. We discovered that we shared mutual friends and I got to spend time with some familiar faces over the extravagant weekend! Anyone who knows Ron can understand when I say that he is one of the most entertaining clients I have ever had, and I feel extremely confident in my abilities now after pulling off a wedding that he was very happy with! I do have to also mention how stunning Natasha looked. I didn't stop hearing comments about how beautiful she looked the entire day and night. I can't wait until they move back to Cleveland so we can hang out!

My good friends at Easywind Studio, were the photographers, and provided me with all of these images from the amazing day. I have to say that everything went off without a hitch and it was one of the most beautiful, lively and FUN weddings I have ever done! Because both families are from Russia, we designed the wedding with a loose Russian Ice theme, noting the white and silver accents and the ice sculpture setup at the caviar station.

A big thank you goes out to my wonderful friends Bernie and Andy at Grande Designs for all of their hard work throughout the day and night in making the wedding chuppah and flowers look so beautiful.




A little background on Ron and Natasha:
Natasha was born in Zhdanov, Ukraine. When she was five years old she and her parents immigrated to the United State traveling through Austria and Italy. On their way to the United States, they encountered a friend of the Ron's father, who requested that they pass along a package.

When they arrived in Cleveland, they looked up Ron's father to give him the parcel. Natasha was just 6 years old and Ronald was 9 the first time they met.

In 1996, Natasha's mom completed her Residency and and joined Ron's father's private practice internal medicine group. The families celebrated by going to dinner together yet Ron and Natasha did not know yet what was to come.

Finally, on December 24, 2003, Ron's mother invited Natasha to attend a family dinner to thank her for her hard work while Natasha interned at her dermatology practice. Little did Natasha know, but Ronald was home for Winter Break after his first semester of Law School and was also invited to attend dinner that evening. That same evening Natasha fell in love with Ronald’s beautiful blue eyes and confident persona. Likewise, Ronald was drawn to Natasha’s smile and easygoing personality.

After dinner, Ronald invited Natasha out to ZaZa, the only bar open on Christmas Eve. After a few drinks, the couple’s chemistry was even more apparent…and the rest is history!!!




















Lastly, I received this e-mail from Natasha a few days after her wedding:
