Toledo, Ohio | Toledo Botanical Garden | The Lodge at Strawberry Acres | Mark + Natalya Swetich Wedding
Bridal preparations for the ladies took place at Natalya + Mark's lovely home in the presence of Natalya's favorite pups. Natalya hung out with her friends and family in her cute Mrs. Swetich jammies while they munched on Chick-fil-a and had hair and make up done. When the time came Natalya's mother helped her get into her stunning ivory gown. It was sleeveless with a plunging V-neckline, full tulle skirt with train, and delicate floral accents. She wore her hair up elegantly at the nape of her neck, completed with a live floral comb and beautifully beaded fingertip veil. Her look was finished with champagne sparkly heels, long jeweled earrings, bracelet and a stunning bright bouquet.
The couple's intimate ceremony took place at the stunning Toledo Botanical Garden surrounded by family, friends, and gorgeous white hydrangeas. Natalya looked like she was floating on a cloud as she made her way to her groom to the soft sounds of the string quartet and greeted him with a fist bump. The ceremony was full of love, smiles and laughter. Natalya and Mark joined wine together to represent their union and finished off the ceremony with a joyous breaking of the glass.
