Popular Destination Wedding On Lake Bled
Polina and Kirill are from Moscow. They traveled to many beautiful destinations and chose their wedding at Lake Bled. The wedding took place on an island in the church of Our Lady. Arrival on the island took place with two gondolas. For the Guests, the Trip was a very special Experience. The bride and groom were especially impressed when climbing the stairs of the church on the Island, while Kirill carried the bride in his arms All 99 steps. The one who wants to get married must successfully complete this task, a real custom that Kirill did very well. Their special desire was to see the mountains from the place where they are going to get married. However, the view of the lake and the Alps offered even more than expected.

TELL US HOW YOU MET.
We met for the first time at a birthday party, 4 years after we had a date on a lake in Moscow, 3 years after we decided to get married on a lake somewhere in Europe, near the Alps.
TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL.
Kirill proposed at the top of the Aibga Mountain near Sochi, Russia.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING VENUE?
We were looking for a beautiful place in Europe where we could find mountains and good accommodation, and we finally chose Bled, because there were not only mountains and a well-developed infrastructure, but also an awesome lake, an island in the middle with a church at the top, a castle with an interesting history, elegant boats and very delicious food.
HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR SUPPLIERS?
We have been organizing our wedding for almost a year and contacted many people via the Internet to find the best hotel, Restaurant, etc. 10 days before the wedding, we only had the opportunity to visit the place in person and meet everyone. It was a little scary that the reality did not meet our expectations at the place, but everything was even better than we expected.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR WEDDING?
The idea was to gather all family members and friends in one beautiful place. One reason for choosing such a landscape was to feel connected to nature, massive mountains, clean sapphire waters of the lake, and plunge into a low and calm rhythm of life.
ARE THERE FAMILY OR RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS INTEGRATED INTO THE DAY?
There were a lot of them. One of the family traditions was the challenges that the groom has to face to meet the Lady on the morning of the wedding day. We also had an Orthodox worship service.
SOME FUNNY STORIES FROM THE DAY AND/OR THE PLANNING PROCESS?
During the celebration process in the Restaurant, we had a number of tasks for the guests. One of the tasks was to sing a baby song with 50 Cent Beat. Another was to correctly answer all the questions about the groom and the Lady, how we met, what countries we have already visited, what were the first gifts we made to each other, etc. there were also magic tricks that amazed everyone.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT OF THE DAY?
It is difficult to highlight our favorite moments because the whole day is special for us: the way friends helped decorate the bus, the way our brother and sister managed to perform Orthodox worship, the celebration at the castle, and the Souvenirs made by the Gutenberg machine, all the speeches, and performances of the guests, everything was very appropriate and exactly what we wanted.
SOMETHING YOU’RE REALLY HAPPY ABOUT? OR WOULD YOU NOT HAVE DONE IT?
We are really glad that we managed to get each guest to give a speech because communication with the guests was the most important point for us.
ANY WORDS OF WISDOM FOR OTHER COUPLES?
If you have doubts about whether to celebrate or not, even if it may seem complicated, expensive or something else, I recommend that you celebrate anyway, because positive emotions, Family Unity and the support of friends will give you memories that will last a lifetime and help you overcome difficult stages in your life.
