massachusetts-wedding Ellena & Andrei – a Love Story from Massachusetts

Ellena was born in Falmouth, MA on cape cod, and grew up in New Jersey. Andrei- born and raised in New Jersey. We have been together for 7 years, but have known each other for 11 years. We met in high school through a mutual friend, who Ellena was dating at the time. We were friends for a while and reconnected during our last year of college when Andrei visited Ellena in Puerto Rico where she was studying and teaching. We like picnics, traveling, cooking, enjoying good wines and cocktails, experiencing new restaurants, being on any beach!

Ellena is my balance. I admire her ability to think for herself and her sense of altruism. She is my best friend and someone I can't imagine experiencing life without her." – Andrei adobebridgebatchrenametemp2wedding-boston   adobebridgebatchrenametemp3wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp4wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp5wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp6wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp7wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp8wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp9wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp10wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp11wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp12wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp13wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp14wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp15wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp16wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp17wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp18wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp19wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp20wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp21wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp22wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp23wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp24wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp25wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp26wedding-boston adobebridgebatchrenametemp27wedding-boston
"Andrei is a smart and passionate person who strives to be the best person that he can be in every situation. The best friend, employee, fiancé, son and man regardless of the hardships. Andrei is my best friend, everything with him feels easy and comfortable. He is my other half, everything that I am not, which makes us work so well together. I love his passion and drive behind everything that he does and most importantly I love how special he makes me feel, everyday." – Ellena

Our proposal started out as a routine picnic in or favorite local park in Boston. Andrei brought the typical charcuterie and champagne. He presented a picture book of the past 4 years of our relationship, with the final page asking for Ellena to be "his best friend 'til the end". Ellena of course said yes and Andrei went on to surprise her with a trip to Nantucket for the weekend.

Our wedding weekend was exactly how we had dreamed and planned it to be. From our friends and family arriving Friday night for Welcome appetizers and cocktails, to Saturday- Ellena getting ready with her bridesmaids and Andrei with his groomsmen, family and friends coming in and out throughout the day- to our ceremony- planned and perfectly executed by Ellena's uncle- to every single detail of our cocktail hour and reception. Our vision truly came to life.

It was a year and a half of planning and we really enjoyed the process. We had a shared vision and worked together to make it happen. We started by choosing our location in a place that has been so special to both of us, Cape Cod. We planned every detail with our guests in mind.

It was important for us to have a weekend where all of our closest friends and family members in an atmosphere that we love. Food and wine are important to us and we wanted that to be a focal point of our special day. And of course, good music and dancing!

An advice we would give to a couple planning a wedding?
Try to enjoy every moment and remember what is important.
