Cati and Damien - traditional romanian wedding

I can't believe it's been almost one year since we shot this beautiful, inspiring wedding!
Time and again I think about it and every time I smile. It was a very long and tiring day from a working point of view but it brought us such immense satisfaction to see the end results and to have been a part of it all.

Cati and Damien met at an international exchange program. Damien (he's a teacher in France) came for a summer camp with the school kids, Cati was their translator. 
Damien admits it was love at first sight. He knew he would come back to Romania to meet the girl that stole his heart and ever since they traveled a lot between Romania and France to be together until the day they decided to get married.

Their wedding was a blend of everything they love: traditions, dance, traveling and above all friendship that goes beyond the borders.
Their friends came from all over Europe to be at their wedding and they chose as location Sibiu, a city that has a special place in their hearts. 

It was such a pleasure to document such authentic moments. All the details and decorations were made with such care and attention and Cati made sure they had a perfect traditional script. Her costume was a hand-me-down from her grandma and they rented traditional homes in Muzeul Satului Astra as a traditional setting for their wedding. The wedding invitation and return gifts were made in collaboration with Liloobox .

The imposing Baroque church from Sibiu's Square was the place they chose to say their vows in front of God. Needless to say it was breathtaking.

To continue with the beautiful locations of their wedding they chose Brukenthal Palace from Avrig to host the wedding reception.

With a host of real friends no party can be boring so Cati and Damien were in for some surprises of their own when everyone started a flashmob on the beats of "Pharrell Williams - Happy" song. 

Everything was exquisite and organized with great care from the beginning to the end.

Cati and Damien you are one of those couples that we will hold dear to our hearts forever and ever!

XOXO
Lia & Laura
