Aliki & Sotiris

How I met my man…

We met in Thessaloniki, where we both come from! It was the party of my best friend that night, which was held at the Shark bar restaurant! It was 10 years ago!

Then, he proposed…

He popped the question one morning, on the island of Aegina (the date was the 30th of July 2015)! We were in bed, and I had just woken up… it was simple and perfect! So we symbolically chose to have our -summer!- wedding there, on the first of July!

Magic lies in the details!

Everything was minimal! We used natural kraft colors and burlap! Every single detail was made by hand, by my dear friend Athina Chrissomali.

And when it came to flowers, our choice was olive leaves, baby’s breath, and roses in ivory! Our wishbook was basically a Polaroid camera!

The best wedding decision I ever made… and also the worst one!If I had to choose one favorite moment!

The best: my faith in the hands of my friend Athina!

The worst: Not a single one! Everything came out better than expected!

If I had to choose one favorite moment!

That would be easy… When we entered the reception to the tune of “City of Stars” from the movie La la land! It was combined with the synchonized movement of our guests’ glow sticks! It was very moving for both ourselves and our guests!

If I could give some advice to a bride-to-be…

Have all the people you love present on your big day! I had my family, and close friends with me all along and nothing compares with that!

Oh, my wedding dress!

My dress was WONDERFUL! I couldn’t have imagined a more fitting gown for me! Ever since I saw it on an Atelier Zolotas photo-shoot, I straight away booked an appointment to try it on! It was just what I had dreamt of!

I am extremely pleased with Atelier Zolotas! My wedding consultant, Melina, helped me immensely with every detail of my dress and every alteration I had in mind! They gave me fresh ideas and useful tips! Our communication was direct, extremely friendly and made me feel at home! I thank you all so much!
