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.

It’s no mystery why Greece is such a sought after destination for weddings and getaways… it’s crazy beautiful. It’s ranking on my ‘wanderlist’ is pretty high and thanks to Mood Effects and George Pahountis, it just earned a jump up on the ‘ole list. Blue waters to white-washed chapels and all the love in between, you can feast your eyes to an abundance of pretty right over here.
From Mood Effects… We had the pleasure to organize the wedding of a couple that came from New York to Greece to celebrate their wedding. The wedding took place in the middle of August in the suburbs of Athens close to the sea. Coming from different cultures, the bride embraced the Greek origins of the groom and both of them wanted to share and introduce to their guests the Greek customs of a wedding as well as the beauty of Greece within few days. And so they did! With few touches of New York elements. The ceremony was in a small white, very traditional chapel surrounded by beautiful tall trees. Just before the sunset the ceremony begun and it was one of the most romantic and emotional moments of the day.
After the ceremony everyone joined the couple for the reception and the party to a private venue next to the sea. The colors of the sunset were enhancing the minimal but impressive architecture as well as the decoration that was placed as centerpieces and all around. White hydrangeas and roses, ivy and candles were selected to match the blue scenery of the view. Few gold details were glowing through the candlelight and kept the “sunlight” after dark.
