No matter what, a destination wedding in Santorini captured so beautifully by Vangelis Photography always puts a smile on my face and this gorgeous fete we are sharing with you today is absolutely stunning! From the drop dead gorgeous Berta wedding dress to the breathtaking caldera view, it is really hard to find the right words to describe how beautiful this wedding really is…
Erin was wearing an amazingly beautiful Berta Bridal wedding dress featuring an illusion back and neckline and also Venice lace and pearl appliqués on bodice and sides : “My Berta wedding dress made me feel like the most glamorous, sexiest yet elegant bride on the most important day of my life!”
“We met ten years ago in Huntington Beach California through mutual friends and family… He proposed during a vacation over Christmas holiday to the UK. We both wanted to take some time to get away and decompress from our hectic work schedules. At the end of our vacation Nick proposed to me at Tower Bridge in London. As we watched the Sunset we stopped to take a picture and Nick surprised me by getting down on one knee and asking for my hand in marriage. The proposal was captured on video by a close friend…”
“My bridal bouquet made from white roses, white lisianthus, white astible, ivy and some olive branches…”
“We aimed for a very simple, traditional Grecian feel with mostly white and olive tones. Then added slate and blue hues to the color pallet for a modern twist”.
“As the groom the best moment was seeing the stunning bride for the first time in her wedding dress walking down the aisle. As everyone’s eyes were on the bride her eyes were only looking at me… The smile on her beautiful face is something that will forever be etched in my mind”.
Erin told us that the best of the destination wedding in Santorini was their vows and as she mentioned: “You would never know by the look our faces that what sounded like karaoke was occurring next door at the winery. Nothing could take this moment away from us. We were incredibly (and surprisingly) calm and it was as if nothing existed in that moment but him and I…”
“The best decision we made was planning an entire wedding trip with our closest family and friends to celebrate our marriage. Compared to one day that is over in a blink of an eye!”
The bride’s advise: “Keep it simple… The more detail you add, the more stressful it will be. We incorporated a few items (live Greek musicians, traditional Greek dancers, fireworks) that kept the evening alive and guests entertained! We allowed for the breathtaking views of the caldera to be the backdrop and didn’t add too much detail to take away from its beauty”
