Anna Roussos… Moving, visually striking, and full of love, Alexia and Sebastian’s vibrant Mykonos wedding highlighted the merging of two cultures. This handsome couple had subtle nods to their heritages, with the groom in neutral Greek tones and the bride displaying a brightly colored flower headpiece and layered ruffled wedding dress in honor of her Brazilian roots. Only their closest friends and family were present for the traditional Orthodox ceremony, followed by a stylish al-fresco outdoor dinner in the heat of a Greek summer night. Happy, colorful, and spirited, this was a Greece wedding occasion capable of brightening any mood.
From the wedding planner, Nymfee… Ask any wedding planner, what was the wedding trend in 2020, and they will all say: organizing the perfect wedding with the minimum number of guests, during an unprecedented pandemic, while still having fun (along with any fortune-telling abilities to predict the next COVID-19 prevention restrictions). And thus the micro-wedding or minimony became the norm. While appearing easier, the end-game was the same: the couple had to remember their W-Day as the best day of their lives. At Nymfee, when we started planning Sebastian’s and Alexia’s wedding, we were going big: 450 guests traveling to Mykonos from 5 continents, a huge beach party in one of the most prestigious venues on the island, and so on. Of course, we had contingency plans, but no one prepared us for the unexpected: a pandemic.
We decided we had to be creative and find inspiration in our roots. After all, why do people want to tie the knot? Because they love each other and they want to share their joy with their nearest and dearest. This feeling of intimacy was our guide in planning a meaningful ceremony against all odds. We merged Alexia’s (the bride) admiration for Frida Kahlo and her emblematic, colorful art, with Cycladic elements and aesthetics. Apart from the visual elements of the wedding, what we actually did was merging four cultures: Sebastian’s Greek-Polish heritage with Alexia’s Lebanese-Brazilian roots. We made sure the couple’s personality was present in all details. Alexia opted for peach, orange & pink flowers combined with Latin-style vases and details, escaping the traditional white or earth tones that the island is usually known for. Her headpiece was a chic new-era representation of a flaming woman, full of love and passion. Since the celebration was considerably smaller than originally planned, we wanted to make an impact with an intimate setup for dinner, creating a layout where the guests would circle the couple with love throughout the event. We also thought deeply about how to set it up in such a way that guests will enjoy their own space, respecting social distancing norms. The result was an idyllic, fairy-tale wedding with the couple’s closest friends and relatives (coming all the way from 4 different countries). As the old adage goes: “Love always finds a way”!
