Here are some highlights from Iga and Stephen’s wedding at the Royal Crest Room. Everything about the wedding is beautifully simple and clean – a white wedding with some unique twists here and there. Everyone breezed through preparations. Iga and her bridesmaids surprisingly did their own makeup. Sometimes, hearing about brides doing their own makeup makes me a little nervous since we never know how that will turn out, but Iga looked like an absolute vision all day long, especially once she slipped into her wedding dress. Iga wore a modest white gown – a strapless A-line skirt, fanback, with a sweetheart neckline. The pearly details up the back acted as buttons and accented the whole look. Her golden-brown tresses were slicked back into a sleek low bun. Iga is a simple beauty in the best way possible. She embraces subtlety and brilliantly follows the “less is more” approach, even for the entirety of their wedding. Stephen and his groomsmen, on the other hand, looked handsome in their classic black tuxedos, pinned with a white boutonnières. Just their gorgeous ensembles showcased enough of their personalities.
The couple met playing an online game called Counter Strike. Iga is a lovely and witty Polish girl who, as it seemed, had an ingenious idea while organizing the wedding. She sent an invite to the Obamas, to which she received an official response from the White House. This is honestly one of the cleverest things I’ve heard a couple doing. Stephen is just as quiet and shy, but really charming and easier to get along with once you manage to chat him up. Both, however, are such lovely and gorgeous people.
Everything about their intimate, outdoor wedding spoke volumes about their combined traits and style. The decorations looked polished and elegant, made the set-up look as pure as the actual event was. Once Iga walked down the aisle wearing a veil, it made the ceremony feel all the more timeless. Despite the day being a traditional white one, reception was accented with a brilliant gold touch – from frames, plates, table cloths, to cakes. All throughout, the wedding looked positively bright and refined. By far, one of my favorites this year.
