Sarah & Benjamin wanted guests to feel like they were entering a magical world when they arrived at their wedding and the day was full of awe-inspiring details which made that vision a reality. From getting married at the castle-like Wonderland Cluj Resort, to the horse-drawn carriage fit for royalty, to the show-stopping, jaw-droppingly lush, floor-to-ceiling florals by Elena Bodea – Las Floristas that filled both the ceremony and reception, guests were transported into a fairy tale for the day. Add to that that these two look like they walked out of a magazine themselves, and this may be one of the most dreamy weddings ever! The gallery is full of more incredible photos by Ioana Porav Photography, from the stunning rose petal seals on the stationery by Invogue Art, to Sarah’s romantic Milla Nova wedding gown (a nod to her Hispanic roots), to even more photos of their unbelievable florals, and trust us, you absolutely want to see them all!
In their own words
How did you meet?
Well, we were friends on Facebook, but we didn’t talked to each other because we never met before. So, our first meeting was very interesting because it was a big coincidence. I went to buy something from a shop and while I was waiting to pay for some goods I saw Beni in the same shop and I recognized that he is the handsome guy from Facebook. Out of nowhere he came to me and asked “we know each other from facebook, right?” That’s how it all started.
What is your proposal story?
We went to Austria to his sister’s. It was during the winter so it was full of snow there. One day he decided to take me on a little surprise trip. After one hour drive we arrived in the mountains on a forest road. After we parked the car he blindfolded me and we walked through the snow for 10 minutes. At some point we stopped and he started to play the guitar and sing “Marry me”. Then I took off my blindfold and I saw the most beautiful lake in Austria, called Gruner See, also lots of candles around us, a frame with pictures of us, everything was magic. I said the most convinced “YES!”
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
The most important thing to us were the flowers and the photos and that’s why we chose to work with the best team.
What were your favorite parts of the day?
I think the best part of the day were the fireworks. In those 5 minutes while the fireworks were on we were hugging and realizing how magical was our wedding day. We had a feeling of satisfaction for everything that happened.
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?
Our advice is: do your best before the wedding, and when the day comes just forget all the stress, relax and enjoy your best day ever.
