This charming destination wedding that we are sharing with you combines elegance and grace with a gorgeous location by the sea at the Athens Riviera in Greece. With the lovely and cosmopolitan couple, Emilie & Alex, sharing their time between Canada and Dubai and with guests coming from ten different countries and four continents, it was definitely a travel theme oriented event.
It was meant to be a celebration for families and friends- both the bride and groom expressed it at the very beginning of our working together- and the beautiful couple managed to welcome everyone and make them feel at home. From the amazing reception location to the live classical trio playing during sunset, the leather luggage tag favors especially ordered for the wedding and the delicious Mediterranean menu and wines, everything was planned with attention to detail. The floral arrangements with calla lilies and greenery as well as the welcome table with the postcards from world cities for the guests to write their wishes were absolutely unique. Need to say about the personal touch on the postcards, table cards and seating chart as the graphic designs were produced by the talented bride!
Emilie opted for a chic and classic look with her Pronovias wedding dress while the couple chose a vintage Rolls Royce for their transportation to the ceremony and the reception venue.
Choosing the best parts of the day, it’s not easy as there were so many beautiful surprises and particular moments. The live theatrical happening performed by the groom’s brother made everyone participate and enjoy while the moment that the groom’s sister dedicated a love song to the newlyweds was certainly very emotional. Not to forget the late night swim at the sea after hours of dancing! A wedding that had it all- fun, laughter, joy, deep feelings of appreciation and love- and above all, it managed to bring out the lovely personalities of a wonderful couple.
Want some feedback from the couple after their wedding?
We absolutely recommend Style Concept for any type of event planning. We were doing a destination wedding in Greece, and Nena did everything to make our big day an amazing, stress-free, absolutely beautiful one! As we are not Greek, the administrative part was quite challenging, and her resourcefulness proved handy! At last, very nice recommendations in terms of venues and vendors, and lovely assistant, Despoina.
