Where do we even start with this epic destination wedding by The Twelve Events? For five days, the glamorous couple and their guests enjoyed an exclusive stay at Nikki Beach Resort in Porto Heli, Greece. On the wedding day, the bride – a jewelry designer – wore a runway-worthy, bespoke gown and jewelry amongst an art instillation of magnificent, self-lit flowers, and guests were seated at a custom, 50 meter table to enjoy the views of the sea. Adam Alex Photography captured all this and more, in the gallery. Excuse us while we pick our jaws up from the floor.

From Adam Alex Photography... After two full days of partying and events – including a Bohemian Beach Party – it was time for the big day. The time arrived for the power couple Joanna, a successful, high-end jewelry designer, and Karim, a businessman involved in the fashion industry in Lebanon, to become one.

The ceremony took place at a small, picturesque chapel, Ververonda, overlooking the sea. The couple used a traditional carriage from the nearby island of Spetses for their transportation to the chapel. The entire exterior of the chapel, approximately 800 square meters, was covered in real grass. The use of the grass and the numerous white scented flower compositions highlighted the Greek elements of the white chapel.

The whole setting for the wedding was one of sophisticated elegance. Inspired by the Burning Man Festival, which the newlyweds have attended in the past, a cluster of custom-made, meter-high, self-lit flower lights were made. These manmade flowers created the perfect backdrop for the evening.

Nikki Beach Resort in Porto Heli was privatized specifically for this event – five days of exclusivity at this dreamlike resort! The Twelve Events team arrived early on the wedding day to create one of the longest tables ever made for an event – a 50 meter table, which could sit up to 150 people, stretched along the seafront of the resort. The table was adorned in beautiful, white hanging flowers and tea lights. Sparkling candles, which were placed along the beach and throughout the venue, peacefully lit up the event.

The guests sat along this carefully crafted table. Directly opposite all of the guests, within the calmness of the Porto Heli Gulf, lies a shipwreck. This unique element could not go unnoticed to all of the guests attending.

The party came to life with a large firework display that took place while the couple cut into their cake, a replica of the famous LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana. This magical atmosphere was accompanied by one of the newlywed's favorite songs, "A Sky Full of Stars" by Coldplay.
