For years now intimate weddings have been becoming more popular for various reasons - and of course it would seem that trend isn't going anywhere in a hurry given the status of the world. All you need is love - oh and maybe a stunning dress and a few talented wedding vendors. Instead of going the popular route of destinations like Tuscany or Southern France, Iceland or Ireland, if you are of adventurous hearts and are searching for a secret location, consider a lesser known - but certainly no less spectacular - location like Bulgaria. Somewhere chances are you haven't been before or even considered. A place with plenty of history, more rural than urban and well, less crowded. On the west corner of the Black Sea, where the rocky Bulgarian north coastline begins, San Francisco Wedding photographer RADOSTINA PHOTOGRAPHY - who happens to be from this beautiful country - captured this elopement inspiration. NEA FLOWER SHOP provided the stunning vibrant whilst ELLIE ANNGELOVA created the most fun suite of paper goods!
"Our bride is the beautiful Sophia. She is Bulgarian born, but has lived in Germany for most of her life. She is well-traveled, with a passion for dancing and fashion, well educated and extremely down to earth. She loves exploring new restaurants and museums and often dreams of adventures abroad. Her groom, Pavel is originally from Bulgaria and has a successful career in entertainment. He fell in love with Sophia’s smile, her effortless charisma, and love for new places and adventures. For their intimate wedding, Sophia and Pavel choose the most picturesque place in Northern Bulgaria to marry privately and have a small celebration afterward. They would still dress exquisitely and selected a stunning one of a kind dress, handcrafted by one of the most talented Bulgarian designers SARAH HIRSCH. That very same evening they will join their immediate family on a table with the view to the Black Sea."
