Abby always teases me about how I try to cram too many of the amazing detail shots into my image boards... and she's absolutely correct. I do. But come on -- Style Me Pretty is a wedding inspiration site! I don't want you to miss out on seeing something incredible for your own day. This wedding, from ak3fotographia with event design by RockPaperScissors is just that kind of wedding - packed with amazing details. Please promise me - you WILL look at this full gallery!
From the Bride... We met three years ago on the 8th October, when I moved to Dubai. Lee had already lived there for three years. It was one of those love at first sight moments where we knew we would end up together. We moved in together after a week of dating. He proposed on the 27th May 2017. I am half Greek (Greek father + Irish mother). We have been going to Greece to visit my family every year. Lee loves Crete, the food the drink the people. We straight away said if we don’t have a wedding on a Greek island it needs to at least be next to the sea. Therefore, when we found Island Art & Taste, we were beyond thrilled.
Planning a wedding from a distance is a big challenge itself, therefore a wedding planner is necessary. We wanted something very unique for our guests as 90% of them would be traveling for the wedding. The personalized favors that also doubled as seating place cards worked perfectly to express our gratitude for everyone who took the time and effort to come to our wedding.
From RockPaperScissors... The ceremony took place under a unique arch where king protea flowers gave a lovely contrast to Greece’s blue skies. Our couple asked for a minimal wedding so we came up with the mix of copper and marble. We started out with the minimal design of invitations by Atelier invitations and then also took it to our tables with the creation of a unique personalized favors made out of marble that also served as a seating card.
From the Groom... We were originally searching for a venue in Greece that would really impress our guests and also provide an amazing backdrop for our wedding. Upon arriving at the venue on our wedding day I was in awe of how beautiful everything looked. I was even more stunned when my beautiful fiancé walked down the steps with her father and became my wife – I remember shaking so much, as she looked so stunning.
More from the Event Designer, RockPaperScissors... We softened our minimalistic table scape by adding the abstract floral napkins wrapped with copper napkin rings, and the unique flower mix with King proteas, orchids, perla roses, eucalyptus, eustoma.
As we all know a bar is truly important for a good party, so our groom chose a whiskey bar and our bride a mobile prosecco bar for everyone to enjoy right after the ceremony.
Decoration of the cake was prepared from our team’s florist and it was another of her wild creations of the day. It was a unique day followed by a great party! What more can a planner ask for?
We do know that the details don't make or break a wedding - it's the love, the romance, the beauty and those special stolen moments illicitly captured by your photographers and videographers that will allow you to relive and cherish the moments, forever. Congrats and Happy 1-month Anniversary from SMP to Jenny & Lee -- thanks for sharing your beautiful day with us!
