“For our wedding we wanted something private and unique. For us, having the chance to get married in such a romantic place with the stunning Santorini view was more than special! Besides… we always talked about having a different type of wedding, something that could be awesome… not just for us but for our guests as well. A trip that brought together old friends from school, new good friends and family to another continent. It was really exciting and memorable!” the bride shared with us and immediately after just glancing at a few of these stunningly beautiful images captured by Vangelis Photography, I knew I was going to fall hard for this destination wedding in the lovely town of Oia, Santorini… and I am most certain that you will too!
“My wedding dress was made by a Brazilian stylist named Juliana Pereira. I wanted the “princess style”… Well actually I wanted this type of wedding dress but more fresh, not so traditional as the “princess dresses” normally are. So I think she did a great job by transforming the dress into something more casual, more modern and still having the princess reference!”“We wanted a clean style and with some color just to contrast with all of the white of Santorini! We choose light pink, lilac and white with details in bronze and gold to match with the invitations…”, the bride shared with us.
“We were classmates in high school. Started as a friendship that turns out to be the love of our lives! The proposal was beautiful. We were living in different cities in Brazil, so I went to visited him on a weekend and he said he wanted to show me a new place. He then drove us to a private airport and a helicopter was waiting for us there! We flew over São Paulo during the night and as with the lights of the big city below us… he proposed to me!”
“When we asked the bride to share the best moment from her wedding in Santorini she shared with us: “There were so many good moments to remember! But I would have to say that there was a pre-wedding moment that was the best one. First time we saw the view from the place we were about to have the wedding ceremony… I can’t explain the feeling but it was something like: “Ok, all the madness of getting married in a place I never been before just paid off, right here, right now!”. And the boat party the day after the ceremony! We rented a boat and had our party in the ocean, with the best sunset view ever! It was an incredible feeling!”“Our best wedding decision was hiring the right people. Stella &Moscha are the best wedding planners! Kirini is the best hotel, with a stunning view and the best crew ever. Vangelis is an amazing photographer. Those are the things you shouldn’t try to save money on… Worst decision was not giving Santorini a few days more after the wedding! We should have stayed there longer before continuing our honeymoon in Greece!”
The bride’s advise: “Choose the best wedding planner possible! That makes the difference between having a wedding with no worries! Because that is something we need before getting married! Don’t miss the chance of having the best photographer as well – he will give you all the memories for to keep for ever and those memories have to be beautiful beyond time! And if the idea of having a beautiful wedding, something that all you friends are going to remember, believe it! Oia is the right place. I found not advise for another place them Kirini. No other compares to Kirini in Oia. I had the chance to visit some others and Kirini is fantastic”.
