This couple’s love for Greece made them have their gorgeous wedding in one of their favorite places, at Agreco Farm in Crete. The wedding was inspired by the natural surroundings, so the decoration followed a rustic, vintage style with wooden, lace details and many, many flowers. Flower designs in white and deep pink color tones adorned every single table, the olive trees and the impressive, delicious wedding cake. Special touches in this wedding were the hanging bottles with flowers and the unique, vintage car! Enjoy every single moment of this wedding through the following, beautiful photos!
“My husband and I met at work. He proposed by during an Art Fair in my favorite neighborhood, Old Town in Chicago. Prior to the Art Fair, Andy worked with a photographer to capture individual chalkboards at my favorite places in Old Town. Each chalk board had a word inscribed “Will” “You” “Marry” “Me”. Andy then had the photographs printed and framed as one piece of art. A week later when I walked through the Art Fair, he led me towards an artist’s stall, and as I approached, I saw a beautiful photo composition that read, “Anita, will you marry me, love Andy”, when I turned around, Andy was on bended knee”, the bride shared with us.
“For my bouquet I picked primarily peonies, pink and cream and deep deep pink, with some pink peppercorns and greenery.”
“The ceremony took place at Agreco Farm in Crete. We love Greece and it holds a special place in our hearts from our vacations there. We wanted to choose a destination that people would have good options to get too, and we choose Greece for the warmth, relaxed and fun-loving nature of the Greeks. And of course, the food!”
“My dress was a rich cream silk by Carolina Herrera. I choose it for it’s timeless, classic style.”
“I wanted the decoration to enhance the beautiful natural surroundings of Agreco Farm and to not complete or take away for out most beautiful setting. We had vintages touches of lace and various antiques, old type writers, vintage glass, and glorious flowers adorned the setting in natural arrangements that felt overall organic to space.”
“Every single moment of our wedding was wonderful! Planning to renew our vows for our 10th wedding anniversary in the same place, and we hope, with many of the same people.”
“My advice to a bride is: Stay true to who you are, go with your gut and don’t over think it.”
