Cosy Alternative Restaurant Wedding: Sandra & Kristijonas

Sandra and Kristijonas were married in Lithuania, at Jalta, an alternative restaurant in Vilnius. From the outside it looks like a wooden house, they serve food made from locally sourced ingredients and they have a DJ in a greenhouse (which is actually where they had their ceremony!) The tree-lined terrace garden was the perfect setting for their laid back and cosy reception.

“We didn’t want to copy a wedding theme so just picked things we liked”, wrote the bride. “Our wedding cakes were baked by a close friend and instead of champage we served Cuba Libre cocktails in small jars. Also, instead of traditional gifts all our our friends gave us vinyls which were played in the evening, after the band!”

Laid Back Lithuanian Wedding: Elita & Tadas

Elita and Tadas were married in Vilnius, Lithuania. The ceremony was in a local church and the reception at Vilnius Old Town Art Gallery. The couple had originally booked an old manor house as their party venue but just five days before the wedding, for personal reasons, they had to quickly change it. So their original plan of a grand countryside wedding became an intimate, urban one.

The theme for the day was subtle – chestnuts. They had them in their stationery and they also planted a tree after the ceremony, in the same place that they went for their first date. With each invitation the bride included a personal poem, which she wrote for each guest individually. Instead of a guest book, they couple asked their guests to return the favour.

The wedding was easy-going and laid back with plenty of love, smiles and dancing.
