Mirko & Eliza - Green Valley Destination Wedding

27.octombrie.2015
[EN] We eagerly waited for Eliza and Mirko's wedding. The way they told us about it made us curios and excited. As always, when we hear such brave and different wedding plans we cross our fingers for them to really happen and hope not to hear in the big day that some changes had to occur. For example that it will be a little traditional music (even though the bride and groom don't like it), so that they satisfy all musical tases; that there will be some Romanian traditional moments (even thought nobody knows their origin and meaning), because the parents said it has to be like this; that the bride will be stolen (even though tragedies have happened), because some friends would be upset otherwise; or that there will be Romanian traditional food (even though the bride and groom are vegetarians), because nobody likes other kind of food. 
 
Well... Eliza and Mirko had their wedding exactly the way they liked it. With music they like (and everybody danced and sang), without Romanian traditions (and nobody had any complaint), without the stealing of the bride (they preferred to use that time enjoying a camp fire and letting us take romantic photos of them), and yes, they had the best vegetarian food EVER (food, that all the meat lovers praised). What can we say? We were in awe.
 
Besides all these the venue was adorable. An authentic Saxon (tastefully) reconditioned mansion, placed in the heart of nature. The simple and friendly decorations were made by the grooms and their friends. The tables were beautifully decorated with wild flowers, aromatic plants, some limited edition magazines about Eliza and Mirko, bottles with olive oil and delicious bitter cherries jam made by Eliza's mother.
 
It inspires you to photograph such weddings and people. We must admit that we had a lump in our throats as we saw Mirko being so emotional during the ceremony. By the way, the ceremony took place under a willow tree which had the honor to host white origami birds. A friend of the grooms urged us to take a white bird, write down a good thought for the grooms and then let it fly. Eliza and Mirko, we also took a white bird and you will find out soon the thought we have for you :)

Am asteptat cu nerabdare nunta Elizei si a lui Mirko. Felul in care ne-au povestit despre ea ne-a facut curiosi si entuziasmati. Ca de fiecare data cand auzim planuri de nunta indraznete si altfel speram din tot sufletul sa nu intervina ceva si in ziua nuntii sa auzim ca, de fapt, va trebui sa se cante si putina populara (chiar daca mirilor nu le place), asa ca sa satisfaca toate gusturile; ca vor fi si niste momente cu traditii romanesti (carora nimeni nu le mai stie originea si semnificatia), pentru ca parintii au spus ca asa se face; ca, totusi, se va fura mireasa (chiar daca in ultuimul an am auzit intamplari tragice de la furatul miresei) pentru ca altfel se vor supara prietnii; sau ca trebuie neaparat sa serveasca mancare romaneasca traditionala (chiar daca ei sunt vegetarieni), pentru ca invitatii nu vor aprecia altfel de mancare.
 
Ei bine... Eliza si Mirko au facut nunta exact asa cum au vrut ei. Cu muzica sa le placa lor (si au dansat si cantat toti cei prezenti), fara traditii romanesti (si CULMEA, nu s-a plans nimeni), fara furatul miresei (au preferat sa foloseasca timpul acela bucurandu-se de un foc de tabara si lasandu-ne sa le facem cateva poze romantice) si, da, cu cea mai buna mancare vegetariana EVER (pe care au laudat-o toti iubitorii de carne). Ce sa mai zicem? Am fost in extaz. Unde mai pui ca locatia a fost dementiala. Un conac sasesc reconditionat (cu gust), neimpopotonat si autentic in mijlocul naturii. Decoratiunile foarte simple si prietenoase au fost facute de miri si prietenii lor. Mesele au fost frumos decorate cu flori de camp, plante aromatice, cate o revista in numar limitat despre Eliza si Mirko, ulei de masline si dulceata de cirese amare (delicioasa) facuta de mama Elizei.
 
Te inspira sa fotografiezi asa nunti si asa oameni. Trebuie sa recunoastem ca am simtit de cateva ori cate un nod in gat cand il vedeam pe Mirko atat de emotionat in timpul cununiei religioase. Apropo, cununia a avut loc sub o salcie care avea onoarea sa gazduiasca pasari albe de origami. Un prieten al mirilor ne-a indemnat pe toti sa luam cate o pasare, sa scriem un gand bun pentru miri si sa le lasam sa zboare. Eliza si Mirko, am luat si noi o pasare alba si veti afla in curand gandul nostru pentru voi :)
