How I met my man…

We met at a rock bar, in Larisa, when we were students. One night I saw him and we didn’t talk to each other and the other day I learned that he was looking for me. While I was looking for him and he looking for me for one week, the bar waiter gave me Christos phone number. I phoned him immediately and make an appointment in the main square and went to our favorite spot!

Then, he proposed…

The proposal came one year later, in the main square where we made our first appointment and gave our first kiss! We were students, without have enough money and full in love!

We got married in early September, in the Church of Prophet Elias, in Kastoria.

The magic lies in the details!

The style we used was rustic, but without losing our Greek and traditional elements!

For the flower decoration, we used currants, lavender, chamomiles, veronica, and amaranth. The bridal bouquet had currants, lavender and veronica.

All the elements had their own magic, because I, my mother and my friends were dealing with a lot of them personally. It’s great to create things for your day with people you love.

The best wedding decision I ever made… and also the worst one!

The best wedding decision made was that I had done a lot of things by myself, but there were a lot of tired moments because I spent three months running between Kastoria, Katerini, Thiva, and Athens. I didn’t regret anything!

To the rhythm of our first dance! 

For our first dance, we chose “the time of my life”, by Dirty Dancing.

If I had to choose one favorite moment!

I couldn’t choose one, because there are too many! Some of these are when I saw Christos on the Church, the wedding ceremony, and our entry in the reception with the song  “thunderstruck”, by AC/DC.

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

I will tell her to stay calm until the end and be herself. Don’t lose your contact with your partner and stay united!

Oh, my wedding dress!

My wedding dress was love at first sight, just I did with my husband! When I saw it, I said that when I got married this would be it! It was dreamy, wonderful, Divine!

My experience in the Atelier Zolotas was fantastic and every time I came I had a fantastic time. The Zolotas staff are incredible, the same as the service.

I would like to thank the following people, for turning my dream into a wedding reality…
