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.

Greek history and beauty all in one…

One of the reasons we dream of capturing romantic destination couples is because they don’t fit into one mold. Destination couples often fall victim to wanderlust, desire adventure, history, and the wonders of the world. This enchanting Greek church location from a bridal session from Boheme Workshops, filled with ancient crumbling walls and exhilarating Grecian history no doubt, felt equal parts ethereal and mysterious… the kind of mysterious that our couples love.

GREEK CHURCH WEDDING IDEAS

Here, with the focus on the opulent background, we love the look of simple, foraged materials for a bouquet. Created by the hands of Celsia Floral, this bunch of olive branches maintains balance and brings in nature in a organic way. The Alexandra Grecco long sleeve gown is flawless for those brides who want something more traditional, in a church for example, all the while remaining effortless, unfussy, and elegant. We loved how the sleeves felt traditional, but were sheer, therefore felt modern all at the same time.

Although churches can be on the dark side, they are filled with interesting and meaningful nooks and corners around every turn. Our favorite photographs are the images of the altar, where your imagination allows you to envision all of the other wonderful moments held at that same spot. We loved this shoot at Boheme Workshops as something completely different than outdoor sessions, immersed in nature. As Greece wedding photographers, we’re blessed with a myriad of locations and places that provide endless inspiration like these ancient churches.

This beautiful couple dreamed of a simple and blissful wedding portrait session. Located at Sierra Forest Lake in Greece, we marveled at the myriad of scenes to choose from: lakefront, mountainous, and lush forestry. As Greece wedding photographers, we truly see the entire range of landscapes and this lovely area, smack in the middle of Greece itself, felt magical.

Rather than utilizing distracting styling elements, we decided to go with pieces that reflected the couple’s authentic style. The luxurious chesterfields were juxtaposed against the rugged tree line and the wintry evergreen trees were balanced by the romantic florals by Flower Style.

Perhaps our favorite images are the ones where the sweet bride is gazing into her husband’s eyes. The genuine and raw emotion there is why we do what we do…
