Saturday Morning Movie: One Thousand Cranes for Love

There’s a Japanese legend that says that if you fold one thousand origami cranes, the Gods will grant you a wish. And so, with that in mind, Sebastian and Eleni started folding little birds in preparation for their wedding day. And when they said “I do,” they folded the 1,000th one. We’re not sure what that big wish was, but we’re pretty sure it came true – and lucky for us, Arte Cinematica captured the magic live!

From Arte Cinematica… This is the love story of Sebastian and Eleni. This is a story about folding one thousand origami cranes. A story about holding hands. A story about love and togetherness. This is the wedding of Sebleni. From Freiburg and Kimolos to London. Around the world, and then back to Athens. Gathering people from all around the globe to witness the exchange of vows of love and affection, in the breathtaking scenery of Lake Vouliagmeni, and then party all together till the morning.

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds one thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the Gods. Sebastian and Eleni, planned their wedding from London, where they live, and the preparations included a lot of DIY. They folded 999 origami cranes, leaving the last crane for their wedding ceremony. Receiving guests from all over the world, they organized and prepared many travel decorations by themselves for the reception, as well as a photo tree with photos from all their guests. The giveaways and invitations were also made by the couple with help from Thefty (for the logo) and Etsy/notonthehighstreet/amazon/paperchase (for the deco).

The whole ceremony was written by their close friend Patrick, and the couple wrote their own vows. All the songs in the ceremony and the first dance were from bands they have seen together in the past. The table names were of cities/places they have traveled to together as well.

It was a very emotional ceremony, in a unique location, full of energy and character, brought together two families originating, respectively, from Germany and Greece, and hosted friends from at least 11 countries from all over the world.

The wedding video tells the story of this couple, and how from Sebastian and Eleni, how they became “Sebleni”.

From De Plan VMixing the luminous class captivated in the natural wonder of a pearl with ethereal elegance influences we created an evening that was eternally timeless ready to host this elegant wedding celebration overlooking the Athenian Riviera.

Colored with the chic palette of champagne crème, pure white pale pink, warm olive green and sparkles of gold, the open space bathed everyone with a feeling of fleeting opulence, where glows drift like pale shadows in every corner evoking bohemian romance and high aesthetic.

Majestic floral installations, fine crystal chandeliers, mirrors, luxurious textures, crystal glassware, chic dinnerware, myriads of candles and luring scenography effects had been the key elements for this sparkling wedding festivity!

The symbolic ceremony was inspired by the vast intimacy of the natural surroundings and the lake, which created a long dramatic aisle to really extend the moment upon bride arrived, under the inspiring sounds of the Italo-Scottish singer and songwriter Niki La Rosa, creating a ceremonious atmosphere.

The focal point of the area was a natural forming handmade arch enriched with abundance of flowers. A marvelous white carpet with the couple’s initials along with majestic amphoras dressed with poetic floral compositions had been added to an alluring scenery.

The guests had been seated in decapé tiffanies chairs placed in rows, while the afternoon light filtering through the trees giving a beautiful diffused light.

On wooden tables, an elegant synthesis of baskets, vintage boxes and crystal glasses, unique colourful flower compositions and herbs filled the ambience with chic fragrances.

Inspired by ethereal lightness a beautiful installation offered the guests wooden fans and craft cones with rice along with chic umbrellas for the females, as an elegant touch to enter the guests in the overall theme making them part of the wedding celebration!

The floral design in both ceremony and reception was composed of peonies, garden roses and hydrangea. It was inspired by gardens at night fall in which pales and luminous blooms seem to glow in the dark.

In the reception welcome area an antique style synthesis, a spectacular display enriched with floral compositions called the guests to indulge into delicate tastes artfully platted. Crystal antique vases had been filled with French macaroons, miniature meringues, cup cakes drizzled with icing, naked cakes and white paper craft cones.

In the dinner area the main theme included mirrored tabletops, plenty of candles in crystal glasses, luxury linen napkins, haute design dinnerware, crystal sous plats, golden cutlery, crystal vases in different sizes and forms with marvelous flower compositions creating an impressing art de la table! Every element was carefully designed to create a dreamy scene bustling with elegance and sparkle. Key decoration element was the spectacular display of fresh flowers, covering the wall behind the wedding table!

For the party time the lounge area was transformed into a royal elegant scenery, where the guests could relax enjoying the sea view along with the atmospherically live concert by James Arthur. On the lounge area mirrored tables, plenty of lanterns and crystal vases filled with candles and flowers had been placed creating an alluring scenery for this talented, inspiring photogenic, fairy tale young couple.

Beachy Elegance Done Oh-So-Right

Rushing off to Greece to say “I do” is one thing, but rushing off to Greece to say “I do” in a seaside glam-filled wedding is another story completely. And Dana and Shadi agree. Which is why they enlisted the help of the talented Rock Paper Scissors Events to host a sophisticated soiree that was one part destination do and one part luxurious wedding.  See it all captured in beautiful images by Elias Kordelakos in THE VAULT right this way.

From Rock Paper Scissors Events… Dana and Shadi’s friends arrived in Greece a few days before the wedding. We arranged a three day program for them by organizing a boat cruise to the nearby islands, a Greek themed pre-wedding dinner with a stunning view of the Acropolis and of course a truly romantic ceremony and dinner in Athens Riviera. Words fail us when we have to say for this couple’s beauty and elegance. But what astonished us even more was their kindness along all the way and particularly the bride’s taste and elegance.

We tried to please her all the way and designed a wedding with a minimal and elegant beach style with peach and blush tones. Guests found their seating in a lovely stand with polaroids taken during their entrance, a jazz band played some laid out music and when everyone heard the “I do’s” white balloons were released to the sky. It was a really emotional party full of friends and family speeches, lots of dancing and a show from three fire dancers to “Set the Night on Fire”.

From the Bride… We got married in Athens, Greece. We wanted a beach destination wedding in a country we love, where all our guests can have easy access to all our guests who flew from US, Canada, Australia, Kuwait, Dubai and Lebanon. The best decision I made was hiring the wedding planner who turned out to be amazing and help us with every step of the way which made our lives easier. The most memorable moment for us was after we finished our vows and all our guests flew white balloons into the sky while the jazz band played the song “ What a Wonderful World”. Also, the first dance was so beautiful with us on the beach and everyone gathered around us.
