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.
