A Cozy, Relaxed & Colourful Lithuanian Wedding: Akvile & Andrius

December 6, 2011

“Cozy, relaxed and colourful” were the very words Akvile & Andrius used to describe their beautiful wedding to me. “We had a very clear vision,” they added. “We wanted the wedding to be very simple, informal, and relaxed. We wanted to focus on the most important thing – us and our love rather than expensive and shiny wedding details.”

“There was absolutely no stress when planning the wedding, we took it very easy, we put a lot of our hearts into every detail – invites, guest gifts, guest accessories, decorations, etc. We chose a pretty small town, small church and not too popular (yet) venue for the wedding, asked guests to wear something that they feel very comfortable (rather than fancy!) in. All these small details helped us achieve our big goal.”

The ceremony was held at St. Apostles Peter and Paul Church in Moletai, Lithuania and the reception was at the intimate Giluzis Homestead.

The couple chose not to have any bridesmaids or ushers, favouring to let all their friends simply enjoy the day, “There were so many good friends and relatives at the wedding that we did not want to exclude any of them by asking to be their bridesmaids or groomsmen. All girls received handmade accessories – colorful flower wrist bands made by Akvile. All boys received blue handmade bow ties from the Andrius.”

Thank you to Akvile & Andrius, their photographer Saules Pieva and their coordinator Laura Vagone for sharing this stunning wedding with us today.
