Intimate elopement in Santorini
We just can’t describe how much we love to photograph intimate celebrations like this elopement in Santorini. Although we are three professionals at the studio, two lead photographers and our associate that makes us a great team for covering big weddings, we have a soft spot for capturing exclusive celebrations, like Alex and Alferdo’s elopement in Santorini. We cannot wait to go back to this amazing island and capture more of what makes intimate elopements really special.
Highschool sweathearts, Alex and Alferdo decided to have their elopement in Santorini on a warm day in May. They had been together for eight years and already felt like married but, they wished to tie the knot properly. It was a lifelong dream to exchange vows against the view of the endless Aegean Sea and stare at the sunset in Oia together. And they did.
Bright sunlight accompanied their day throughout giving us the perfect opportunity to capture some amazing moments for these two. Santorini was still quite at this time of year, so having an intimate ceremony at Sophia Suites seemed fitting. Alex was as beautiful as ever, wearing a custom wedding gown with beaded details in the back and having an orchid in her chic updo. Alferdo was waiting for his bride on a terrace area surrounded by whitewashed houses and the breathtaking views of Santorini.
There were so many intense emotions elicited during their first look and we saw tears of joy as Alferdo handed this splendid flower bouquet by Betty Flowers Santorini to Alex. They stood together in front of their circular arch to exchange vows of infinite love and devotion. Followed by an intimate dinner, organized by Santorini Glam Weddings, their table set up was stylish and full of pastel colors. The pretty in pink wine glasses and the colored candlesticks made up for a very special celebration. They dined and even had their own cake cutting! White anemones and splashes of warm orange and bright peach adorned every floral piece in this wedding. What better way to be reminded that summer was just around the corner?
Alex and Alferdo finished off their intimate celebration watching the sun go down on a white washed terrace with a breathtaking view to the Aegean. Leaning on his shoulder, she whispered: the only dream I ever had was you.
