Hold onto your hats SMPers, because this wedding planned by White Ribbon Boutique Events Coordination is beyond. Did I mention that it’s in Greece? Or covered in gorgeous florals in fabulous pink hues from Rammos Flowers? Or that the couple looks like they stepped out of a magazine? I didn’t? Well, that’s because it there really are no words that will do this soiree justice, but thankfully Thanasis Kaiafas gorgeous images speak for themselves. See even more here.
From White Ribbon Boutique Events Coordination…When the couple first contacted us, we immediately realized that this was going to be a very special event! Both the bride and groom live in New York by they had envisioned a destination wedding in Greece. They chose the beautiful island of Corfu to host they wedding celebrations.
Guests started arriving on the island two days before the wedding from different parts of the world, including the US, UK, India, Nigeria and China. The celebrations included a welcoming dinner at a beautiful hillside villa, a sailing trip to the neighboring islands of Paxos & Antipaxos and a festive brunch at a local taverna.
The wedding ceremony was held in a picturesque whitewashed Greek Orthodox chapel on a small tranquil fishing village in Corfu while the reception was hosted in a stone built breathtaking villa located north of the island’s center, overlooking the blue waters of the Ionian Sea. The couple hosted a welcome cocktail on the patio of the villa where guests enjoyed local Prosecco and Hors d’oeuvres while taking photos by the Greek inspired photo-booth backdrop reading OPA! in golden lettered balloons. A 5 course meal followed the cocktail reception at the villa’s terrace under the romantic candlelight.
The décor there was inspired by the bride’s wish to use vibrant shades of pink, often seen in the flowers used in the gardens of Greek island houses as well as the use of royal blue representing the color of the Ionian Sea, complemented by vintage Grecian gold details.
The cake which was custom made and flown from Athens was also of Grecian style embellished with golden laurel leaves that was inspired by the use of elements and architectural details used in Ancient Greece.
The couple and guests enjoyed a spectacular show of fireworks followed by a night long dancing under the stars!
