Bridal Sign Up

From Russia With Love

Love is global for fashion designer Kira Plastinina.

 

 

Kira and Trey’s destination beach celebration was a tropical dream.

 

Reception tables were natural and fresh thanks to Vanessa Jaimes Floral Design.

 

Stunning blooms arched over the couple as they exchanged vows.

 Jimmy Choo shoes were especially fitting for the ultraglam bride.

Given the bride’s background in fashion, it’s not surprising the wedding of Kira Plastinina and Trey Wallette had special style. Russian-born Kira founded an apparel business at the age of 14 that grew to a chain of stores throughout Eastern Europe and drew a following of international celebrities. Now 25, she already has more than 10 years of experience in the fashion world. Studies at SMU brought Kira and her high school sweetheart to Dallas, which they now call home.

Since they had gone to an international school in Moscow, their guest list was global; Kira and Trey knew from the start theirs had to be a destination wedding. The couple chose the Viceroy Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, for their January nuptials, a three-day celebration with family and friends. The ceremony took place on the beach under a driftwood arch draped with cascades of white flowers, Kira in a Romona Keveza lace gown set with tiny crystal beads that shimmered subtly in the sunset. She changed into a dress by Monique Lhuillier for the reception, where guests danced late into the night to performances by Matisyahu and the Yacht Rock Revue.

The next morning, guests enjoyed brunch before heading home. Kira and Trey lingered for an extra day before returning to Dallas themselves. They’re planning on a honeymoon to South Africa soon.
