“We got married in Summer in Naxos Island. We met in Ile Saint Louis in Paris. We are both from Paris and met through friends. Alexis proposed during a vacation on the island of Naxos in 2019 and we got married two years later in 2021 after the arrival of our second boy. It was a really romantic proposal which involved champagne, sun and nice view out the beach and city of Naxos”, Emily shared with us.
“We have decided to do our wedding in Naxos as we have a very special bonding with the island. We wanted a wedding with a timeless decoration, mostly white, with some greenery and pampa. Flowers; white roses, white lisianthus, olives greenery and pampas grass. The bouquets, the flowers for the arch, centerpieces tables, buttonieres, bracelets were the same style. We had a very nice arch with flowers for the ceremony. As our ceremony and diner were on the same location – on the beach, we didn’t really have to do a lot of effort for the decoration as the scene was perfect!”
“The wedding dress was a Manon Gontero which is French wedding stylist from the south of France. The wedding dress was flesh-colored with transparency. A pretty neckline and a bare back. The dress was easy to take on a plane, light to carry on me. I wanted a dress in which I feel good, it was over 35 degrees the afternoon of our wedding!”
“Our most favorite moment was the ceremony and the exchange of rings. Also, we really liked to be on the dance floor”. Bride’s Advice: “Enjoy every moment!”
