Ira and Vova got married on April 17!

It was a day much anticipated on two continents: the majority of the planning happened in Russia, while daily, emotion-filled phone conferences took place between my mom, sister, and I. Mike’s duty was to calm me down and help with some of the packing for the trip.

We flew to Saint Petersburg with 2 suitcases of the warmest clothes we could find in our Californian closets. Forecasts did not look promising and everybody was really worried about the weather on the wedding day. Every day leading up to it we would wake up to find gloomy gray skies and the outside thermometer seemed stuck in the upper forties. I think a lot of people were praying for good weather, because when the wedding came around it suddenly cleared up and was surprisingly sunny and warm! It was a true blessing! Let me just add that the rest of our vacation we were wearing our coats once again.

St. Petersburg is a gorgeous old city with so many spots for photo shoots! Fortunately, my sister didn’t care to visit the traditional places that people usually visit on wedding days and let us make suggestions on where we should go for the photo shoot that followed the ceremony.

After some thinking I remembered about Mihaylovsky Castle – an old museum in the middle of the city. This great location, cooperative weather, and a beautiful couple willing to work with our tips yielded some amazing pictures. We just couldn’t stop shooting!

Overall, it was a very emotional day for everybody – the wedding of my little sister.
