This gorgeous Corfu Island wedding can be seen on Style Me Pretty here!
Our hearts fluttered when we first spoke with this gorgeous couple – for their heart, their love for each other, and the incredible wedding they had planned. Becoming close to our couples is our number one priority because, as their photographer, we know we are gifted a huge privilege to capture one of the most important day of their lives. This Corfu Island wedding was a dream and we adored their style which was supremely elegant and romantic. The bride’s gown with floral lace appliqué was one of the most gorgeous gowns we’ve seen! Each element, styled and planned by Corfu wedding planner was such a surprise of clean, glamorous beauty. We will let the dear bride tell you all of the beautiful details…
From the Bride: “Many consider their wedding day to be a new beginning; the start of a new story. We saw our day as an opportunity to share more about our past – share our traditions, our backgrounds, our values. This was reflected in our invitations, which had personalized postage stamps of our parents and grandparents on their wedding day, our ceremonial Stefania (Greek crowns) that were passed down from my parents, and the drinking cup from my husband’s family. Our goal was to walk into the new cherishing the old, because, after all it made us who we are. The Greek island of Corfu was the ideal location for us to do so– an emerald island on the Ionian, reminiscent of Venetian culture, giving an ode to my husband’s Italian background and allowing me to realize my dream of going back to the country I grew up in, to get married. Mediterranean cultures value family above everything else, something which was evident throughout the entire process. We shared with our families each step of the wedding process, irregardless the task. Whether the job involved making wax seals for each invitation or assembling gift bags and gluing a lavender flower to each name, we could always count on them. They were with us when we got ready, present when we became one, and walked down the streets of Corfu Town with us to commemorate our wedding.
Since we had a significant amount of people visiting from the United States and Europe it was important to us to share with them the beauty and charm of Corfu. We thought that the best way of doing so, was by giving them an opportunity to experience Corfu in the same way the locals did, a three day celebration. We started Friday with drinks at a café in Corfu town, which was followed by a ‘welcome dinner’ consisting of dancing, eating and drinking at a local taverna. On Sunday everyone came together again for brunch which was followed by a boat party. There was no better way to end our wedding than by sailing off into the beautiful Greek waters.”
