A Bohemian Forest Wedding at a Private Residence in Krasnoyarsk, Russia

For Tatyana Tereshkova (31 and an interior designer) and Vadim Zagidullin (31 and an engineer), art lit their spark. “My drawings inspired him, and I was inspired by his music,” says Tatyana, who married Vadim in a bohemian, Siberian-inspired forest wedding at a private residence in Russia three years after meeting. The woodsy setting was perfect for the event’s romantic berry-toned palette; family and friends helped decorate the open-air ceremony space with pinecones, green garlands, herbs, berries, garden roses and a wooden wedding arch. The on-site reception for Tatyana and Vadim’s 45 guests was set up with sturdy wooden tables and chairs and topped with pinecones, purple linens and handcrafted wooden candelabras. In a personal twist, Vadim’s band, 1000 Records, played during the reception, allowing the groom to serenade his bride. Among the event's numerous handcrafted details were the wedding favors—gift bags with the tea of Siberian herbs and flowers, which were collected by Tatyana and Vadim's mothers. “Don’t copy someone else's wedding,” Tatyana says. “Create your own holiday.” —Carolyn Meers
