Weddings are often cemented in tradition, but that doesn't mean you can't spice it up and customize your big day to be exactly what you want.

Couple Anya and Alexsei wanted something of their own: a wedding that not only included their Russian Orthodox traditions, but also had their own personal flair throughout the decor and even the guests' attire!

Anya and Alexsei were married in a Russian Orthodox Church in front of a close group of friends and family. Then they headed out to Girdwood for a glamorous, 1920s-themed reception!

Guests were encouraged to dress up in the fashion of a Great Gatsby gathering.

The bride and groom were able to sneak away for some mountaintop portraits, which are just stunning!
