We often dream of Santorini’s picturesque cliffside dotted with white and blue buildings, so it’s no wonder why Lauren and Michael decided to have their intimate wedding in the amazing venue of Fanari Villas! “Fanari Villas Venue and beautiful sea view were the stars of the show… I absolutely loved the venue so much that I went very simple on decorations…Fanari Villas was amazing to work with. They helped me plan a beautiful wedding with amazing food, staff, floral and photography vendors and helped me plan details of my special day. The setting of their hotel is gorgeous on the cliffside of Oia..” the bride shared with us and we feel as if we’ve just stepped into a dream that’s overflowing with white roses, olive branches and summer vibes. Enjoy!

The bride shared with us: “We had a summer wedding in Oia, Santorini. We met on Bumble. After dating for years looking for the right match, we stumbled across one another online and met for a casual lunch break coffee date. The rest is history! My dress was a BHLDN design. I knew it was the one from the moment I tried it on. It was delicate, beautiful and elegant. I loved the mixture of floral lace designs on top paired with the tulle skirt on the bottom. I went with a light grey color dress to mix things up a bit. It was just enough of a difference but still had a bride feel. I loved my dress so much and want to wear it again one day to a special event or vow renewal.”
“The whole evening was a dream come true. We got married at sunset on the cliff of Oia at Fanari Villas at sunset. The beautiful sea was below us and our dear family and friends joined us in celebrating with us. Dancing under the stars to classic Greek music was very memorable!”
“We kept our decorations simple and classic as the Santorini cliffside, Fanari Villas Venue and beautiful sea view were the stars of the show. My bouquet consisted of white roses, eucalyptus & olive branch leaves. We used white linens for our dinner tables along with white lanterns set on edges of balconies for ambiance. I absolutely loved the venue so much that I went very simple on decorations. It turned out perfectly with an intimate set up of 3 dinner tables in all white with mini olive plants in pots in the center of each table.”
Bride’s Advice: “Create a vision for you and you partner and go for it! There will be a lot of advice given to you by people but ultimately this is your day. Do what feels right for you and follow your dreams. For us a destination wedding was our dream, we have no regrets and a lifetime of memories because of the trip we made across the world for our special day!”
