Old World Romance at Costa Navarino Resort
Romantic Greek wedding in Messinia with neutral palette and centerpieces featuring seasonal fruits designed by White Ribbon Boutique Events Coordination and photographed by George Pahountis.
This wedding should come with a warning label. The styling by White Ribbon Boutique Events Coordination is so gorgeous you might just have to put off that work project a bit longer, the setting is so breathtaking you might scrap your honeymoon plans and opt for a Mediterranean getaway, and it's all captured so beautifully by George Pahountis your fingers will get tired from all the pinning. At the very least we recommend you sit down while cruising through this romantic al fresco affair.

From White Ribbon Boutique... We started working with Abbey & Costas over a year before their wedding date and although we had never met them in person, we felt like we knew them for many years. They are one of the loveliest couples we have ever had the pleasure of working with and who shared a great vision for their wedding. The groom’s parents were born in a small Messinian village in the South Peloponnese, Greece and they selected Costa Navarino resort, in Messinia to hold their wedding as, due to its location, it represented part of the Groom’s family origins.

Many of their close friends and family travelled form very far away to celebrate the couple’s journey. The wedding ceremony was held at a chapel in the Groom’s hometown while the reception and pre-wedding festivities were held at a beautiful balcony of the resort overlooking the blue sea and green golf courses.

Our inspiration for the décor was based on the natural ambience of the Messinian region and we decided to use a mix of green foliage, blush and pink flowers and season fruits. Neutral colored linens and vintage accessories complemented the décor by creating a simple and sophisticated look, which blended in perfectly with the surroundings.

Guests experienced some unforgettable moments that day, with the emotional first dance of the couple, the heartfelt speeches of the couple’s older siblings and the night long dancing of guests.
