How I met my man
We have known each other since we were kids, but we fell in love after finishing our studies, when we both returned to our hometown in Laconia.
Then, he proposed…
The wedding proposal took place in the idyllic castle of Monemvasia, in a traditional room, on my name day! We got married at the chapel of Panagia in Neratziona on the plain of Vion, on September 12.
Magic lies in the details
Our wedding style was Vintage and Rustic, with a lot of DIY details. The main color was white, with shades of purple amaranth, burlap, and twine.
The flowers of my wedding bouquet were baby’s-breath (gypsophila), amaranth and sempre viva!
I mostly liked the decoration of the tables. The centerpieces were metal pots with flowers, placed on burlap and white handmade doilies that underlined the vintage atmosphere.
There was also a photobooth that consisted of a big frame and a hanging crate filled with straw hats, for the guests to dress up and take photographs! It was a very joyful corner in the reception area!
The best wedding decision I ever made.. and also the worst one!
The best decision was that we did almost everything the DIY way–the decoration, the invitations, the wedding favors, etc. It gave our wedding a unique, personalized style.
If I had to choose one favorite moment!
Please don’t ask me that, It’s very hard to choose! They are all parts of a sweet memory and a beautiful celebration…
If I could give some advice to a bride-to-be…
Be calm throughout the wedding and enjoy every minute! Also, choose the pieces that represent you and your future husband.
Oh, my wedding dress!
I believe it was the ideal choice, it made me feel incredible and most of all I felt like myself wearing it. Even now, when I look at it in the pictures, I get the same beautiful feeling!
When I entered the premises of Atelier Zolotas, I instantly felt like I would find what I was looking for. The collaboration with the designer, as well as the wedding expert team was exceptional.
I would like to thank the following people, for turning my dream into a wedding reality…
