This was one of the best things I saw at the bridal show last year. It made me smile. Would your groom wear this camo tuxedo? Oh my gosh I didn't even realize the bride had a camo bow on her dress. this is classic!
Do you like it? Would you like to see your groom in this tuxedo on your wedding day?

Brilliant wedding from Tuscany, Italy today. This is from a favorite photographer of mine, Alexander Pavlulchenko, based in Moscow traveling the world to bring us incredible pics! These are his words about the wedding...
Hi everyone! Today I’d like to tell you a magical story of Alexander and Maria.
The couple had been to numerous weddings and decided that they didn’t need a big and pompous wedding. They wanted their celebration to be for the them and their nearest and dearest only. The guys had traveled the world and not surprisingly chose Tuscany as a place to get married.
Last winter, when we first met, we spent good few hours discussing everything. We got to know each other, found numerous common interests and shared values.
In short, the day before the wedding I arrived in Florence and spent the morning wandering around town. It was arranged that Alexander would pick me up to go to their wedding villa in the afternoon.
Having spent much of the day sightseeing, quite tired as the bag with all the equipment was still with me, I went for a coffee in Piazza della Signoria. Sitting in a cafe, I noticed a couple of newlyweds wandering around and taking pictures of themselves. I don’t really mean anything, but there’s something good about helping others, isn’t there?. I went over to the couple and introduced myself. They turned out to be from the USA, Mississippi: John and Anna. They had got married that day (a wedding for just two of them...) and were enjoying the city. I offered to take few pictures of them.
The wedding was taking place at a beautiful old villa link. I don’t mean it as advertising but I’d recommend it to everyone who wants to visit Italy: excellent homemade food, vintage furniture and spectacular views!
A view from my room:
We had dinner and discussed the next day. I was anxious and calm at the same time - incredible feeling. Perhaps, a good company and Tuscan wine were to blame
I woke up in the morning and got started with the shoot. My shooting principle: blend in the atmosphere of the day, become part of it. I try to make people on the other side of the lense forget about me and act as if I’m not there. It works.
Some pictures of the preparations and a bit of Tuscany nature in the morning:
The dress was by Pronovias
The groom Suit: Versace
Shirt: Massimo Duty
The main part of the day was yet to come - the official wedding ceremony. The local Prefect arrived for that purpose.
After the ceremony we had a bit of time for a quick photo shoot at the villa after which we all went to Florence.
The couple had opted for Volkswagen Maggiolone cabrio 1972 as their wedding car - excellent choice for their wedding theme!

Pictures of the villa, grounds and our trip:
Passers-by were congratulating us. So nice
A walk in town. A very hot weather seemed to be the only downside. We had to look for every shade and take time to rest every now and then.
The bridal bouquet was through at Duomo. It was caught by the groom’s sister.
Tired by happy we were on our way home.
Maria wasn’t that tired
The couple enjoys horse-riding so they got some very pretty horses from the nearby stables.
Unbelievably delicious dinner to live music. Incredible cake. Beautiful fireworks. Just a fairytale. If I were getting married now, instead of 7 years ago, my wedding would have been just like that.
I’m really grateful that the guys let me save moments of their day for them.
I really like watching this beautiful wedding story to nice italian music. Enjoy!
Get married and do it for yourselves!
