Gintarė & Mindaugas
Last June, London-based bride Gintarė Burneckė, and her now husband, Mindaugas, returned to their native Lithuania for a fairytale wedding at scenic Vila Komoda. She shared all the details of the beautiful rooftop ceremony, and a breathtaking dress we can’t believe came together in 24 hours.

“It all began with shoes. THESE shoes. I never wear high heels, but I wanted to for my wedding, and if it had to be something it had to be the Camellia Pleated Bow Heels. When I got my hands on them, I couldn’t have been happier!”
“I had my dress made in 24 hours after my first fitting, five days before our wedding. It was designed by the super-talented Aistè Jankienè and her team at UTA Studio. I’d met with Aiste three months before the fitting over Zoom, and I instantly knew we clicked. The dress she created was entirely ‘me,’ and I thank my lucky stars that I found Aistè.”
“While we were location scouting, our wedding planners took us to Vila Komoda, a boutique hotel in Lithuania, just for a quick peek. After three seconds on that rooftop terrace, overlooking pinewood forests, we were sold. We held both the ceremony and cocktail hour there.”
“We will always remember our entrance to the ceremony. Seeing all of our loved ones gathered in one place after so long was overwhelming, and we will be forever grateful to our amazing photographer Egle Jo, who managed to capture our true selves and all of the genuine emotions, but in style.”
