If there was ever a wedding to evoke immense wanderlust in all, this right here is it. Captured by George Pahountis and Wedfilms, this whole destination celebration seems out of a movie, from the band serenading outside the ceremony to the epic views of Santorini. Stella & Moscha of Exclusive Greek Island Weddings created a masterpiece and I'm pretty sure it doesn't get more amazing than this.

From Stella And Moscha, Exclusive Greek Island Weddings... Andriana and Alex’s Destination Wedding weekend was the perfect blend of relaxation, elegance, celebration and honoring roots. Set on the stunning island of Santorini in Greece, each moment of the day was full of beautiful vintage details, old world charm, bright skies and a spirited group of guests ready to celebrate the bride and groom. The ceremony took place at the Cathedral Church of Santorini on the cliff-edge overlooking the volcano. The couple wanted to honor their heritage so in true Greek style Alex waited for the Bride outside the church whilst Andriana was serenaded by local musicians; a custom which has survived through the centuries. Champagne cocktails and dinner followed at the La Maltese Estate which undoubtedly has an extraordinary view of the uber-famous sunset of Santorini. Since this was an intimate wedding with 40 guests we set up a long table so this felt like a family gathering. It was truly touching to see the entire wedding saying a prayer before dinner with this dramatic background. One of our favorite details was the mirror ‘aisle’ that covered the centre of the entire dinner table filled up with candles and touches of silver and gold creating a wonderful vintage-like sparkle. A mix of porcelain and glass vases filled with lush bouquets of hydrangeas, orchids and roses complemented the look. Adding to this the sun just hitting the water right in front of them making it sparkle, and enough clouds in the sky to make a perfect soft box for photos. A Greek band made sure there was enough ‘syrtaki’ whilst the mighty-talented Showtime DJ’s kept everyone on the dance floor until the early morning hours. The wedding had the couples stamp all over it, whilst also paying homage to what the island stands for. And all this captured perfectly by George Pahountis.

From The Bride... Our parents have been longtime family friends and a couple of years ago we found ourselves at the same wedding - fate may have played a role when were were seated next to each other at the rehearsal dinner. Immediately Alex and I felt that we had known each other for years and could not stop chatting all evening. I returned back home after the wedding weekend to find the most beautiful bouquet of flowers sent by Alex. Although we were living in different cities this did not deter our mutual enchantment. Our relationship grew stronger through the years and last Christmas Alex asked me to be his wife! While trying to decide where and how we would marry, all of the possibilities were thrilling! We knew that we wanted something small and intimate. Both Alex and I share the common thread of having family from Greece. When we were discussing where to have our wedding it seemed that no other venue would suffice. We were married on September 16th at sunset overlooking the most picturesque views of Santorini. Santorini was the perfect location for this magical and momentous occasion. Our style was very much classic with vintage old world glamour. Ethereal, dreamlike... romantic. Candle light... We could not be happier with the way our story unfolded.
