Okay guys, prepare for ABBA songs to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day after seeing this unreal beautiful wedding in a little Greek town called Kalok… *ahem*… Monemvasia. Katie Grant Photography captured the most inspiring photos of the island scenery and the sweetest emotions from the bride and groom. Think Happy Events planned every detail to perfection, and Secret Garden had us weak at the knees the minute we laid eyes on the reception. Make sure you check out the full gallery because every.singe.picture is stunning. What more can we say besides... "Opa!"
Amanda was the most stunning bride on her wedding day, her smile lit up every corner of this darling town of Monemvasia. We love this shot of Amanda and her mother getting ready for the big day, captured perfectly by Katie Grant Photography.
Amanda & Kris chose the summer solstice, June the 21st, for their wedding day. The summer solstice, derived from Latin words sol ("sun") and sister ("to stand still"), is the longest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere, while the daylight lasts over 15 hours! This astronomical event has been associated with love and fertility.
The wedding celebration took place at the historical old mansion of the Kinsterna Hotel. This amazing old structure was built during the 17th century, close to the picturesque Castle of Monemvasia and was completely renovated with great respect to its architectural history.
Organic delicate details with local inspirations were the root of the overall design. The flowers from Secret Garden were eucalyptus, olive branches, pepper leaves, peonies, purple & white lysianthos, succulents, bombastic & lase roses, lavender. Nature at its best!
Many talented vendors participated making the impossible to happen. After all, great teams create dreamy weddings!
Everyone in the room could tell how genuinely happy and in love Amanda and Kris were throughout their special day. The beauty of this wedding was only matched by the love these two share for one another.
