Iris and Steve reside in Charlotte, North Carolina, but decided to get married in stunning Santorini, Greece as Iris has long had dreams of having her Greek grandfather walk her down the aisle. Their closest friends and family acted as the officiants for their truly stunning day, and the unparalleled colors of the sea and the palpable romance of beautiful Santorini made for the perfect backdrop for celebrating their sweet love story!
The scenery was beautiful in itself so the bride wanted to add little touches that complemented the natural ambiance – the sunset, architecture, water. For the tablescape, the couple chose a silk and willow natural table runner with a whimsical floral centerpiece that lay in a wooden box. They had lots of votive candles and French gray candlesticks. There were gold rimmed plate chargers, each holding a dip-dyed and gold foiled menu and place card which was then polished off with a delicate pink rose and silk ribbon for each guest. Surrounding the table were white lanterns graced by olive branches along with different heights of candles all which lit up the dance floor and night sky.
The bride was wearing a Stella New York wedding dress and cathedral length veil, the groom rocked a classic navy suit with a blue tie. The bridesmaids were dresses in dusty pink and blush as these shades were chosen as wedding colors.
There was a breakfast rehearsal the morning of. Each person stood up and read only their last line. It wasn’t until the ceremony that everyone fully read their part. Standing there during our ceremony, it all beautifully came together. Emotion quickly came over everyone as each word was read. It was an experience like no other. Look at the pictures below to see all of the beauty!
