Bridal Sign Up

Diana Sirotkin & Edwin Vdovets

March 10, 2013 | The Biltmore

The bride donned an ivory Vera Wang Eliza dress, pink Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and family heirloom jewelry, while the groom wore a Hugo Boss tuxedo.

The Couple
Introduced through family in Miami, Diana and Edwin dated long-distance before Diana moved to Chicago. Edwin later proposed at South Pointe Park, the same spot that the couple shared their first date and kiss.

The Details
The outdoor ceremony was held in the hotel’s Country Club courtyard, where the aisle was decorated with romantic groupings of tall glass cylinders with floating candles and cascading white orchids. The circular chuppah was accented with a crystal chandelier that hung from the center.

The Party
In a nod to the couple’s heritage, the reception featured a Russian band flown in from New York. Place settings included shot glasses for vodka and tequila; guests danced in favor-provided flip-flops.
