«I met Nikiforos in 2017. It was early September, and I just started my new life in Boston. We met online and quickly decided to have our first coffee date. It was an 8 hour date, we had coffee, and decided to have dinner later, and he drove me home. We discovered that we had so many things in common, both studied literature, both love philosophy, anime and games. In late 2021, we’ve been dating for 4 years at the time, he took me out one day for a helicopter ride. it was supposed to be a surprise to relax me from all of the stress from work, life, etc. It was a very nice ride. Then he took me for dinner, we had so much wine and great food. We were both a bit tipsy at the moment, and then he suddenly took out a tiny blue box with ribbons on. “I almost forgot”, he said, “I haven’t asked you this, will you marry me?” I was overjoyed, and of course, without a second thought, I said yes to him.», bride shared with us.
«Nikiforos and I both share a deep love for orchids, so it felt like the perfect choice for our wedding. With the expert guidance of our wedding planner, Xenia, we found the perfect bouquet. As we planned our destination wedding in Athens, we wanted to infuse the elegance of the Greek seashore into every detail. Our chosen theme centered around a palette of ivory pearls, with subtle hints of green from natural florals to evoke the coastal beauty. With wedding planner Xenia’s expertise from Riviera Blu Events, we adorned our wedding venue with charming seashells and carols, perfectly capturing the beach wedding vibe we envisioned. Chandeliers were selected to elevate the outdoor setting, and the result was truly a dream come true. One of our favorite decoration details of our wedding was our sweetheart table. It provided us with a precious and intimate space to sit together, gazing at our cherished guests, reflecting on the incredible day, and reveling in the fact that we were finally married. The details on the table served as a perfect reflection of our wedding’s essence. Elegant white flowers with delicate green leaves, pearly plates, and silverware. It felt surreal to be surrounded by our loved ones, all of them sharing in our joy and having a great time.»
«My wedding dress, a creation by Giovanna Alessandro, was a dream come true. It embodied everything I had ever imagined wearing on my special day. A classic gown with a long, elegant train, adorned with a beaded top and layers of sparkly tulle, it made me feel like a true princess. It was the dress I had envisioned wearing since I could remember, and it was the perfect choice for our magical day.»

«Our absolute favorite moment from our wedding was when the fireworks lit up the night sky to the tune of ‘Now I See the Light’ from the Disney movie ‘Tangled.’ As the song’s lyrics sang ‘and at last, I see the light,’ it felt as though everything in that moment was perfectly aligned and just right. The fireworks painted the sky with brilliance, and our hearts were filled with joy and the promise of a bright future together.»
