A Must-See Gown + Peony Bouquet for a Greece-Set Wedding
Coral charm peonies happen to be one of my most favorite things, and when you pair them with the beauty of Santorini, Greece, you get an unforgettable wedding day in every sense of the word. Two of our vendor loves, Tie The Knot In Santorini-Weddings & Events + Betty Flowers Santorini brought their talents to the team and Sodapop Photos + Mont Videography didn’t miss a beat. Even more in the gallery!

A few words from the bride, Christine… The emotions were high. Waking up in a cave suite that was overlooking the volcanic Aegean Sea made my heart stop. It was the day that I would take his last name. The day we planned for so many months. The day we dreamed of for so many years.

From the moment we decided to get married in Santorini, Greece we knew we wanted something small and personal. Something that had a mixture of both of our unique tastes. My love for rustic and golds and Ryan’s love for art and color. The tables drenched in navy gauze, gold table wear, and of course an abundance of waterfall-like peonies flowing off the tables and down the aisle.

The planning, preparations, and all the stories from friends and family on what your wedding day will be like could never have prepared me for what I felt on that day. Dressed in my stunning Inbal Dror gown, holding my peony-filled bouquet tightly and my dads arm even tighter.

The second that I caught my soon-to-be husband’s eyes I fell in love all over again. Like the first time you know you love that person so much you will never be able to live without them. That’s what I felt. That exact feeling. 10 years later, I fell in love with him all over again. It was a rush that I will never forget. Standing next to each other and looking over to see our 3 beautiful children sitting with such big smiles and tears in their eyes was a moment that will be forever imbedded in our minds. Our first born got to carry the rings down the aisle, our daughter was our flower girl and wore a garland crown fit for a Greek goddess, and our youngest carried a sign that read “Daddy here comes mommy” on it which was a heart-stirring moment.

We wrote our own vows and read them in these perfect navy vow books that we will have for the rest of our lives. Our guest list of 30 enjoyed a champaign toast after the ceremony. cocktail hour followed while we stood on the picturesque white Santorini roof tops. We got to stare into each other’s eyes and whisper sweet things to each other all while looking out into the exquisite Santorini sunset.

Our wedding was a perfect representation of us and it was reflected in the details throughout the day. If our wedding day was any indication of what our lives will be like then we are on the most beautiful, loving, spectacular journey!

Jehane and Jacques, a beautiful French couple, travelled all the way to Crete from London with their beloved families and guests to experience the wedding of their dreams. The wedding ceremony took place in the middle of nowhere in an extraordinary landscape on the edge of a cliff with a breathtaking view the endless blue of the Aegean Sea. An open wooden door, symbolizing the opening to their new beginning, was decorated with olive branches and marsala flowers. The bride arrived with a local traditional music band and her bridesmaids, all dressed up in dusted pink colors. The sound of silence, for the ceremony, in comparison with sound of the waves crushing the cliff, was irresistible. By the end of this beautiful ceremony, a cocktail party followed at a private villa and the guests had the chance to have a panoramic view of Crete under the well-known Greek sunset. Pomegranate: a symbol of life, rebirth and fertility was the inspiration for the wedding decoration. Beautiful flower garlands decorated all tables while large red pomegranates were used as escort cards. Wedding favor bags with local products like virgin olive oil and organic honey were placed on each guest’s seat. The highlight of this amazing party couldn’t be anything else than French champagne & endless dancing up until the morning light!

From the Bride… Steven and I met in Texas, just by chance. Turns out, it was the chance of a lifetime. From that moment on, we started to build a life together and never looked back. A few years later, Steven proposed in Big Sur on a California road trip up Highway 1. To no one’s surprise, I said yes.

How we decided to get married in Italy is still not completely clear to me, but it was the best decision we could have ever made. It was the perfect place to gather our closest family and friends and enjoy what we love most; eating, drinking, laughter and exploring new places.

We were married in San Galgano, a roofless 12th century abbey, on a warm and beautiful day in late September. The mayor of a nearby town performed the ceremony and honored us with the most poetic and kind words we could have ever hoped for. It was one of the most breathtaking moments of our lives; even our guitarist joined in the happy tears.

We had rented a villa in Tuscany for the week, and there, under a sky of twinkling lights, we had the most spectacular dinner feast. The traditional Italian meal was served family style and wine flowed freely late into the night. That evening, my mother presented us with the most wonderful gift we could have imagined. Unbeknownst to us, she had asked each of our dear guests to share their favorite memories of both Steven and me during dinner. Throughout the evening’s celebration, the people we love most in the world, shared stories that made us laugh, made us cry, and left us feeling so incredibly blessed to have such amazing people share this truly remarkable day with us. Our wedding day is something that we think about often and we know we will cherish forever.

For us, Italy was a dream; something out of a fairy tale. It took a lot of faith and trust to plan a wedding plus a week full of group activities and events from a distance (Mom in Michigan, me in Seattle, wedding planner in Italy), but it was truly one of the most extraordinary experiences of our lives. We are eternally grateful to all those who traveled so far and did so much to make our week in Italy an unparalleled experience that we will hold in our hearts always.
