Marissa and David chose to seal their love in Greece, her father’s place of origin, accompanied only by their families. They decided to exchange their vows in Rethymno, Crete in traditional manner using the wedding crowns (stefana) of Marissa’s grandmother.
The ceremony was modest and the bride was looking like an ancient Greek goddess. She was gorgeous, with natural makeup and superb hair style. The wedding dress was silky in cream tone and minimal. Marissa was amazing while she was walking down the aisle escorted by her father and two musicians with bouzouki.
The groom was smiling all the time, looking at his future wife with love and passion. David wore a suit with blue linen coat and a colorful hanky as boutonniere.
NMevents organized this traditional wedding connected with good quality food, olive oil, raki and handmade soaps as gifts for their guests. A hearty welcome table with drinks, “golden” bonbons, cup cakes and plenty greenery garlands constituted the main decoration of the reception.
Last but not least, the location where the ceremony took place was a picturesque balcony next to an old olive tree with the most natural view: A vineyard and in the background the sensational blue of the sea.
Our wedding planner from NMevents said: “We designed a rustic country wedding theme based on what the couple was asking for and not to what was custom to do”.
Our beautiful couple enjoyed their wedding party by dancing with Greek music and drinking favored good wine which is produced in our area.
