Nick and Alina :: Married :: Chisinau, Moldova

Sep 1, 2009


What do you get when you add a beautiful couple, romantic restaurant, candles, lots of roses, mime artists, magicians, men in black, awesome musicians and djs, and 60 of your closest friends?

The Answer – One of the most inspiring weddings one can attend.


When Nick and Alina contacted me for their wedding, and told me they planned to have a small intimate wedding with only their closest friends and family, and shared their ideas – I knew this was a wedding I would truly enjoy not only to photograph but to simply be present.

This is a LONG POST 🙂 but the awesomeness of this wedding was too hot to hold back on, so make yourself comfortable 🙂

Off to the civil service zags:

After the civil service we went to a local park to take family photos and then start the portrait session, followed by visiting a small beautiful hotel and malldova shopping center:

Yes he wanted to throw his cigar at me 🙁

No beds where destroyed in this photos 😀

We found this yellow wall near where we were taking photos and couldnt resist!

1 thing to remember – dresses always get dirty on a wedding day! 🙂

The restaurant was gorgeous, it was cozy, romantic and full of energy:

First dance:
