Vrinda and Pier’s elegant and timeless Hindu wedding was so special to us. From the effortlessly beautiful details (like Vrinda’s heartstopping gold gown) to the glamorous and overstated tablescapes, we loved everything. Additionally, photographing a remarkable Hindu wedding was something different for us and we truly appreciated the traditions and meaning behind everything! Vrinda and Pier’s special day on Hydra Island was even recently featured on the esteemed Vogue Sposa, which was a huge honor for us! Below you’ll read more from the lovely Vanessa, planner of Deplanv, so we’ll let her take it away with this special day…

From planner Deplanv: “A so special wedding theme inspired by the sensory textures and evocative scents from the Greek Land and the secret language of the herbs drawn from the surrounding countryside suffused with Hindu details featuring a sense of minimalist luxury.

The Hindi ceremony took place on a small islet 10 minutes by boat from Hydra island. Beneath an infinite canopy of stars and the lush natural beauty of the surroundings this wedding festivity was a feast of all senses. Colored with the sophisticated palette of olive green, sandstone, soft crème and touches of gold this set up evoked a sense of intimacy captured with candid elegance getting mixed with the breathless sea and sunset view. This ceremony was a unique experience for all the guests who travelled there with traditional boats. 

The dessert table was the main decoration concept on the venue entrance. It was antique style synthesis with a magnificent and romantic display enriched with floral and herb compositions calling the guests to indulge into delicate tastes artfully platted. Crystal antique vases are filled with Greek traditional sweets and of course Greek koufeta! The ambience was upgraded with the enchanting hanging antique chandeliers enhanced with candle lit in crystal antique glasses and mirrors hugged by fragrant floral arrangements and lush greenery.

Exuding confidence, this unique art de la table was designed for lovers of delicate details! The elegance is in the juxtaposition of haute design items with raw and rustic textures over timber surfaces hugged by marvellous floral and olive compositions. Mass candle lit in copper hued candlesticks, brass and vintage metallic vases featured unfussy elegance. Fabric hand scripted menus, silver and bronze cutlery for an easy glam, fine dinnerware, crystal sous plats and luxury linen complete the overall theme. The wooden monastery tables -in one long composition- had been the perfect canvas for the floral design and the perfect contrast for all chic details.

The lounge area was transformed into a royal elegant scenery, where the guests could relax enjoying the picturesque sunset. Elegant tables and sofas, plenty of lanterns and crystal vases filled with candles and off white flowers had been placed around creating an alluring scenery for a so elegant, artistic, classy and talented couple who managed to combine more than 4 cultures in the same festivity!”

You can view Jennifer and Alexis’ wedding featured on Wedding Sparrow here!

Jennifer and Alexis’ Athens wedding was beautiful, glamorous, and overly scenic. The Temple of Poseidon provided the background of their stunning destination wedding and we were honored to capture their love in this sightly place. Jennifer looked stunning in her Jenny Packham gown, which incidentally looked quite Grecian with the layers and folds. One of our favorite parts of the day to photograph was their bride and groom portraits after the ceremony, where we explored some vast and rocky terrain near the ocean.

From Stella&Moscha Weddings: “Jennifer and Alexi’s wedding was the ultimate classical Athens experience. The bride resembled a Greek goddess in her ethereal wedding dress, the ceremony was a traditional church wedding and the guests happily enjoyingthe summer Athenian sky. The flowers and décor of the ceremony and the reception were Greek olive branches and white roses that matched the surroundings and gave way to the breathtaking columns of the Temple of Poseidon to shine through and cast its magic spell over the newlyweds.

The day started with preparations in the south Attica, with the groom getting ready at his family home. Guests and family arrived at the church of Agia Marina at the Athenian Riviera while Jennifer and Alexis enjoyed a touching first look by the sea. According to Greek Orthodox tradition, the couple had a person close to them exchange their wedding rings and crowns and then followed them for cocktails and dinner at the Naos Restaurant underneath the Temple of Poseidon overlooking the Athenian sea and enjoying every ray of sunset. The picture was complete with a full Greek band that got people dancing until the early hours and delicious cakes by Pavlov’s lab, celebrating Jennifer’s southern American heritage with a luscious red velvet.”

Check out this Crete wedding on Style Me Pretty here!

Jehane and Jacques’ beautiful and organic destination Crete wedding was truly a fun one for us to capture. Jehane and Jacques are a lovely couple residing in France and decided to head over to Greece to celebrate with a smaller group of friends and family for their wedding day. Starting the day, bride Jehane looked stunning in her sleeveless gown with slight drapery and a little embellishments. Her bridesmaids looked stunning in shades of a neutral blush color, which looked perfect against the scenery. We can’t forget to mention handsome Jacques, who looked quite dapper in his blue!

Designed by uber talented planner Think Happy Events, their ceremony was simple and meaningful. Below you’ll read more about the open door for their ceremony! A Crete wedding must be celebrated by enjoying the incredible landscapes, so their reception was held outdoors, under the stars. We loved their garlands and pomegranate decor, which added a pop of color to their day….

From planner Think Happy Events: “Jehane and Jacques, a beautiful French couple, travelled all the way to Crete from London with their beloved families and guests to experience the wedding of their dreams. The wedding ceremony took place in the middle of nowhere in an extraordinary landscape on the edge of a cliff with a breathtaking view the endless blue of the Aegean Sea. An open wooden door, symbolizing the opening to their new beginning, was decorated with olive branches and marsala flowers. The bride arrived with a local traditional music band and her bridesmaids, all dressed up in dusted pink colors. The sound of silence, for the ceremony, in comparison with sound of the waves crushing the cliff, was irresistible.

By the end of this beautiful ceremony, a cocktail party followed at a private villa and the guests had the chance to have a panoramic view of Crete under the well-known Greek sunset. Pomegranate: a symbol of life, rebirth and fertility was the inspiration for the wedding decoration. Beautiful flower garlands decorated all tables while large red pomegranates were used as escort cards. Wedding favor bags with local products like virgin olive oil and organic honey were placed on each guest’s seat. The highlight of this amazing party couldn’t be anything else than French champagne & endless dancing up until the morning light!”

Valentina and Alberto’s minimalistic wedding was a very special one for us. We traveled to the beautiful Corfu, a Greek island off the northwest coast, only to have our breath taken away from the beauty once again. This incredible couple chose the island of Corfu for the beaches, ease of travel for their guests (coming from 18 different countries, no less…), and the laid-back feel. Valentina and Alberto are both art directors, so you can imagine their keen eye for a beautiful aesthetic, which was a complete treat for us.

Valentina enlisted the help with ultra talented Corfu Wedding Planner, whom we had the pleasure of working with. Their details were nature-inspired and casual, yet lovely. The two lovebirds said their vows in St. Jacob Catholic Church in Corfu Old Town, where their guests filled every seat! After that, they experienced such a fun moment: walking through the streets of town to their reception venue with a band leading them and all of their guests in tow… even tourists grappled at their phones to capture the moment!

The newlyweds chose Pazuzu for their venue for the minimalistic wedding aesthetic and the ability for their guests to mingle and enjoy themselves.  We particularly loved the head table, designed by Corfu Wedding Planner, with large fern plants as a stunning and surprising floral element by Rizos Garden. Their guests danced all night and everyone was treated to a fairytale ending: beautiful fireworks.

Valentina and Addison’s wedding was previously featured on 100 Layer Cake here.

We’re back in 2017, refreshed and ready for a year filled with fine art weddings and beautiful moments to capture on film. Today we are reminiscing on this incredibly lovely intimate and glamorous Santorini elopement, designed by our friends at Santorini Glam Weddings.

The sunset cast a golden hue on everything the eye could see. We are a bit biased, of course, but we truthfully believe Greece is one of the most beautiful places on the entire world. The beauty of the sunset that night is a testament to the mesmerizing beauty of Santorini. Simple, yet elegant details adorned the table set for two, resulting in a clean, glamorous design. Can you image sharing a drink with your love overlooking the ocean with that view? It was remarkable to witness….

GLAMOROUS ELOPEMENT

Another element of this gorgeous shoot was the intimacy of an elopement for two. As Greece is a beloved destination for travels, holidays, and vacation, we often see our fair share of elopements. Santorini is one of the most easily recognizable places with the white walls, bright cerulean blue roof tops and ocean, and steep hills. This place lends itself to a awe-inspiring special moment for new couples and we loved showing that here.
