Mariya + Michael // Concorde Banquets
Whenever we get a call from a fellow wedding vendor to film a family wedding for them, we’re humbled for many reasons. We have filmed many weddings where Yanni Design Studio has provided the decor. Their flawless execution, stunning designs, and jaw-dropping decor work leaves many wedding guests, brides, and grooms in awe. So, when Yanni called to ask if we could film his son’s wedding, we were ecstatic.
We knew the decor at Mariya & Michael’s Russian Jewish wedding was going to be out of this world (and it was!). Flowers were everywhere…they lined the entire wedding ceremony aisle, the custom chuppah, the rows, the custom seating table arrangement, the massive cake, the guest tables, the list goes on and one. The lighting, the entertainment, the planning…it was all amazing! More importantly, Mariya and Michael met in Russian class during grade school. The love they have is evident. It’s amazing to think they met while they were so young and today, they are finally getting married. Many years later, Michael proposed to Mariya in that same classroom. Mariya + Michael, thank you for asking us to film your epic wedding. It was one we won’t forget!
