The beautiful island of Santorini is an ideal place for intimate weddings or elopements, such as the one we are sharing today! Through the amazing video that Imagine Cinematography shared with us, you can enjoy the beautiful symbolic wedding of Katie & Brad and you will me mesmerized! “The wedding video by Imagine Cinematography is a beautiful snippet of the symbolic ceremony we had in Santorini. They did a great job of capturing the fantastical surroundings and the intimacy of the day, as we couldn’t have any friends or family join”, the lovely bride shared!
“Brad and I knew each other through a group of mutual friends, but the sparks didn’t fully register until a group trip to Santa Cruz for New Year’s 2016. The day after the trip he emailed me and asked if I’d like to go on a date and we’ve been together ever since. He proposed last February by telling me to pack my bags and taking me on a very long hike along the Point Reyes Coastal Trail. When we checked into our BnB and were on the porch looking out at the ocean, he got down on one knee and said, “Before we do anything else I just need to know one thing – will you marry me?”. After many happy tears and hugs, we went down to the beach, made a bonfire, then finished the night with dinner at the Pelican Inn nearby. The best moment of the wedding was exchanging vows. We had done a small ceremony in San Francisco just days before we flew to Greece where we incorporated the traditional vows. Santorini was the first time we had a chance to express our personal vows to one another and doing so in this breathtaking setting was such an impactful moment.”
“Largely inspired by the stunning Greek Cyclades, I wanted to embrace the natural surroundings, so we stuck to a palate of white, off-white, light blue, grey and green. I wanted my outfit to draw from ancient or traditional Greek stylings and chose a dress with delicate drapery and gold-toned accessories. Once we decided to do the wedding in Greece, we only had about 2 months to get everything in order. I simultaneously started shopping online, made one appointment with a local dress shop and a tailoring appointment. After trying on a few options, the one that I purchased online was it. It’s by Maria Lucia Hohan and with a few tailoring modifications, ended up being the perfect dress. I love how it flowed in the wind.”
