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!

When it comes to destination weddings, I will forever have a love affair with Santorini. It’s majestic caldera views and open blue waters embracing the whitest of whites, leave you feeling surrounded by pure romance. So is true in this gorgeous seaside soiree from Anna Roussos Photography. With guests donning only white, a seriously beautiful Bride and a breathtaking backdrop, this gallery is a destination dream come true. Don’t miss the film from Xavier Roussos below!
From the beautiful Bride… We dreamed of a very intimate affair and decided to have our wedding some place unique. We knew that Santorini was beyond romantic and that the beauty of this island would match the love we had for one another. So with twelve of our immediate family members we began our journey as husband and wife and it was a trip of a lifetime filled with laughs, tears, and smiles.
From Anna Roussos Photography… Catherine and Matt flew all the way from USA to get married in beautiful Santorini Island. They had very few guests, just immediate family, so it was very friendly and intimate affair. They also have planned a bigger celebration with all the friends and rest of the family when back home. But this lovely day in Santoirni was dedicated just to the closest ones in their lives. What can be more romantic than getting married “on top of the world”? That exactly how it feels when you are exchange your vows facing breathtaking Caldera View of Santorini.
Absolutely everyone was dressed in white and it created an amazing feel, very pure and romantic. I just loved this idea and it worked very well with the colors of Santorini. Catherine was stunning in her Nicole Miller dress and Matt looked very handsome in white Calvin Klein suit. It was pleasure to be part of this great celebration and I hope you will get inspired going through the photographs of their special day.
