Real Wedding: Sokolsky – Yochananov Wedding

We had the privilege to work with Julie and Aharon earlier this year to plan their wonderful Winter Wonderland wedding and we’re so excited to share all of the incredible details with you!

The ceremony and reception both took place at the Four Seasons Hotel and Resort and Kym Skiles with f8studio was there every step of the way to capture the day perfectly.


Julie and Aharon opted to do a first look before their ceremony which gave them ample time to take plenty of gorgeous pictures!


And then it was on to the ceremony… with a stunning white aisle runner, exquisite snow-like details, and a custom chuppah unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!


As guests entered cocktail hour, they were greeted by a custom escort card tree composed of many incredible elements–the gorgeous ice sculpted vase, fabulous floral and branches, dripping crystals, and one-of-kind laser-cut snowflakes with each guest’s name and table number written out!


Upon entering the ballroom, guests were dazzled even further with all of the “icy” details… Let’s let the pictures speak for themselves!


After being introduced as the newest Mr. and Mrs., Julie and Aharon took a spin on the all-white dance floor and the whole room watched in awe as indoor fireworks went off during their finale dip!


Oh, and have we mentioned the cake?! Fancy Cakes by Lauren put together this elaborate and ornate masterpiece that took center stage under the ceremony chuppah until it was time to be cut.


The night continued in full swing with plenty of dancing, tiny treats for a late-night snack, customized snowglobe favors for each guest, and confetti “snow” to send the newlyweds off in style!


We love this wedding so much that we pulled out a few close-up details that were simply to die for–check them out below!

Julie and Aharon wanted one-of-a-kind welcome “baskets” to greet each guest as they checked into their hotel, so we partnered with Southern Fried Paper to customize these cuties! Don’t they just get you in the Winter Wonderland spirit!?


Southern Fried Paper also put together some incredible paper products–check out the dainty, letterpress snowflake detail!


Just in case you couldn’t tell how beautiful the chuppah was from the pictures above, here are a few more shots…


Remember that escort card tree that took your breath away? Here is a closeup look to WOW you even more!


We are in love with this floral halo that The Garden Gate created as a whimsical centerpiece above the dance floor!


Not only did Dallas Ice FX sculpt the ice vase for that escort card tree, they also crafted this vodka ice luge for guests to enjoy throughout the evening!


These sweet little snowglobes graced the center of each table to serve as table numbers!


This cake was so beautiful, we just had to include a few close-ups…


These tiny little desserts were the perfect end to the night and we couldn’t pass up one last look!


We had such a blast working with this amazing family and our all-star team of vendors to pull off a Winter Wonderland to remember!
