STEPHANIE & KOSTAS
I recently had my wedding in Chania in September. Planning a wedding in Greece all the way from the United States was stressful in it’s self without ever seeing the church or the venue. Once I found Niki, we made an instant connection and she was like a friend right off the bat. Niki was always available to talk via text and email and was there to calm me down or answer any questions that I had. Even the silly and ridiculous ones
A fairytale wedding with a spectacular Oceanview
Stephanie and Kostas decided to become husband and wife under the ancient mysticism of a Greek Orthodox Wedding. Traveling all the way from Canada to the exotic island of Crete, Greece, was an ideal option as Kostas is of Greek origin. The couple wanted to make their wedding day a graceful mix of customs of both their nations and religions.
ceremony at a small chapel
The wedding ceremony took place at a small chapel on a hilltop with an amazing view of the ocean. The decoration was very chic and blended perfectly with the soft light of greek sunset – flowers in green and white hues, mainly olive leaves and eucalyptus. The bridesmaids’ white dresses added a very classic and clean tone to the moment – as did the groomsmen. The wedding venue also had an exotic flavor, as was located right next to the seashore with palm trees.
love can unite different cultures
Nothing can compare to the first look of this sweet couple when he saw her in this gorgeous Willowby dress – love was so tense during these seconds you could almost touch it! It looked so much like that moment, about one year ago, when Kostas asked Steph the question that would change both their lives forever: “We were in Vancouver, Canada… Kosta had actually just come back from Greece and I hadn’t seen him in over 3 weeks. We decided to walk about the shore after a lovely lunch… We had stopped for a moment as he needed to get something out of his backpack. Next thing I know he is down on one knee saying “Hey Steph, will you marry me?” -and guess what, she said YES!
This wedding is a perfect example of how love can unite different cultures and elements into a harmonic unity when there is a strong connection and understanding between the couple.
