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!”
