Weddings in Mykonos

What ever happens in Mykonos, stay in Mykonos… right? Well, destination weddings in Mykonos stay with the guests & the couple forever! Everything is magical in Mykonos. Is like living into a postcard from Greece.

Rock Paper Scissors Events Agency has a long history of magnificent custom made weddings in Mykonos. And now that we are visiting (again) the Island of Winds (aka Mykonos) we are in the mood to look back at our beloved couples that trusted us to plan & design their wedding.

It was an amazing party on the beach, next to the blue Aegean waters with two souls in love! All weddings inevitably start with a “yes”! In this case, the proposal was made underwater and Tiffany’s blue color of the magic box was definitely a keeper to this wedding’s concept.

That is the spirit of a wedding in Mykonos! The wedding’s motto was “In the deep waters”!

The wedding took place in the mythical for the crazy parties and celebrations, Greek island of Mykonos. Couple chose Panormos Beach Restaurant for the pre wedding party and Solymar Mykonos for their wedding’s reception.

Invitations were unique because they had the feeling of reading them through a viewmaster and where designed by We design agency.

Hawaian leis necklaces and decoration was once again handled by our team. Signs like «shoes optional» and custom surf board that was used as the wedding’s guestbook, was illustrated by the talented Mr. Manolis Iliopoulos of Imaginary Rooms.

Vivid colors and deep emotions were captured by the lens of Fiorello photography where she also coordinated a custom photo booth. Video credits go to Ariadne Papanastasiou.

We are grateful to this couple that followed our lead to this deep dive in such clear waters. They followed our advices from their engagement shooting up to their wedding’s website.

Prosecco Bar Van

All weddings must have something old or vintage, right? What’s better than a Vintage Prosecco Bar Van at your wedding?

It has style and can keep your guests happy! Bring the cocktail hour one step closer to the beginning of your wedding celebrations. You can always have and your signature cocktails, later during the party.

Put yourself into your guest’s shoes. Especially when, at destination weddings, most of the guests have traveled from all over the world to honor your wedding. In Greece, summertime is remarkable hot and arriving at the wedding reception area during early afternoon hours, doesn’t make it any cooler. Having a Prosecco Bar Van, full of cold refreshments and drinks will make your guests feel welcome and grateful.

We have a first-hand experience on how much guests are happy to see a cold glass of wine ready to be served while waiting for the married couple to arrive. In this astonishing wedding in Antiparos, the wine glasses mingle with the smiling guests within minutes.

The couple chose Bubble Couple Prosecco Van for their destination wedding in Greece. They wanted to serve White and Rose Prosecco and offer Prosecco-based cocktails to everyone. Their decision was wise because even before the end of the wedding celebration, the Prosecco Bar Van became the star of the night!

Delight your Wedding Guests with a Prosecco Bar Van

The couple decided to get married in Antiparos, surrounded by friends and family. They also wanted to make a holiday out of it for their guests traveling all the way and what can be better than the Greek islands in the summer? Natural, elegant with elements of naivety and a little bit influenced by the Greek folk tradition were some of the characteristics that made this wedding so unique. Enjoy this elegant wedding in Antiparos and get inspired!

A Prosecco Bar Van with A Tropical Vibes Twist

Plan your destination wedding in Greece with a hot tropical vibes theme. See how in this breathtaking styled wedding shoot in Athens.

It was still hot summer in Greece when we joined forces with Stephanie Brauer and Ushna Khan photography during their short visit in Greece, to create this unique styled shoot. Our initial mood board had tropical vibes but we wanted to infuse extra spicy and modern elements like a pancake cake –instead of a traditional wedding cake – as well as the mobile beer bar we created to serve as welcome drinks during guests’ entrance.

Add Modern Elegance with a Prosecco Bar Van

Our couple asked for a minimal wedding so we came up with a mix of copper and marble. We started out with the minimal design of invitations by Atelier invitations and then also took it to our tables with the creation of a unique personalized favor made out of marble that also served as a seating card.

Then we softened our minimalistic tablescape by adding the abstract floral napkins wrapped with copper napkin rings, and the unique flower mix with King proteas, orchids, Perla roses, eucalyptus, eustoma. The ceremony took place in the same venue under a unique arch where king protea flowers gave a lovely contrast to Greece’s blue skies. As we all know the bar is truly important for a good party so our groom chose a whiskey bar and our bride a mobile Prosecco Bar Van for everyone to enjoy right after the ceremony. Decoration of the cake was prepared from our team’s florist and it was another of her wild creations of the day. It was a unique day followed by a great party! What more can a planner ask for? See this modern wedding with your own eyes!

Use your Bar Van to Serve Coffee

It may look like a classical Prosecco Bar Van but it’s serving amazing coffee. There is always room for one more espresso during a wedding day and a styled photo shoot, too! If you and your guests are coffee lovers, then add a Coffee Bar at your wedding reception. Believe us, it will make your day!

In this moody and romantic styled shoot in Athens, we had the best time ever! As you can see, the concrete elements were combined with lots of greenery and fresh flowers to smooth the whole outcome. Our flowers concept, as usual, it was rich with Tulips, lisianthus, anemones, ranunculus, freesias, peonies, veronica, hydrangeas, delphinium, roses, lilac, scabiosa pods, ami, amaranthus green, ruscus, fern and eucalyptus. And of course a lot of coffee from the lovely mobile espresso bar that you will fall in love with. It was the best start for the dinner setup.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

· Exclusive Interviews, Luxury Weddings, RockPaperScissors, Top Wedding Brands, Weddings · , , , , , , , ,

Our new Exclusive Interviews section is launching with Victoria KyriaKides, one of the top wedding fashion designers in the world. She has been established for her unique wedding gowns.

Victoria KyriaKides

Victoria KyriaKides has been creating haute couture collections since the early 2000s using her individual “sur mesure” authentic French technique. Every dress is created by hand in the master atelier to the precise measurements of each individual bride.  Every thoughtful detail is meticulously regarded.  An international trendsetter, Victoria is a favorite in Europe among her discerning clientele.

Victoria is able to reveal the beauty of the female body through her distinguished body-conscious feminine cuts, minimalism, the use of the highest quality materials available and timeless ideas.  Exceptional service and individual attention to each client by the designer are part of the brand’s essence and of utmost importance.

Victoria Kyriakides’ (VKK’s) master atelier is located in Athens, Greece, and an additional showroom is located in New York.  She presents her collections twice a year in New York.​​​​​​​​​​ Her Collections are available in numerous exclusive boutiques around the USA, Europe and Asia.

What made you want to start making wedding dresses?

My vision was to bring a fashion aesthetic with red carpet glamour to traditional bridal wear. I wanted to see women in clean-cut designs, rearrange traditional bridal forms, and design wedding dresses with the most luxurious fabrics available and edgy details.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What’s the most significant moment of your career?

There are so many great things that have happened which make me feel so grateful. Recognition from major international publications and media platforms, establishing my NYC showroom, the collaboration with Saks 5th Avenue NYC and Beverly Hills, among other collaborations with top boutiques internationally. I am enjoying every moment of this journey!

Where do you find inspiration to design your bridal collections?

It just comes with a tune, with a glance, with a feeling.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What are the latest wedding trends which you find amazing?

I just presented my SS 2020 Collection at the NYBW this April with a range fashion statement. The dresses distinguish themselves with the intricate handwork that goes into each piece. Sheer lightness,  embroidery and appliqués, Victorian sleeves and yes — sparkle, party mini dresses under skirts.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What does the perfect bride look like to you?

The bride that possesses a strong balance between dynamic and romantic qualities.

My bride mostly is a fashion conscious, often fashion-forward girl who appreciates a high level of service, a large and tasteful selection of gowns that are highly original, timeless and technically sharp. VKK brides are diverse and unique in nature, but they all possess qualities of being strong, confident and dynamic women. I have dressed all different types of public personalities. Most of my brides are lovely women who want to look and feel truly beautiful, appropriate and comfortable.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What advice do you have for future brides?

Dress for yourself and look like yourself! Don’t overdo your hair and makeup. Enhance your natural features to be the most beautiful version of yourself.

Do you have a favorite wedding gown type?

I adore the one of a kind pieces.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What is the one mistake that a bride should never make on their wedding day?

Never pick a dress just because wearing it will make someone else happy. It’s your day!

From idyllic beaches to wild precipitous mountains, Crete is a place of contrasts. An island which is rich in tradition and gifted with so many breath-taking sceneries, you cannot do anything else than immediately fall in love with it. The setting completes with extraordinary delicious food, enchanting folklore music, but most of all with people with huge honest smiles, ready and willing to make you never forget Crete.

Abaton Island Resort & Spa is the ideal venue for an elegant, yet effortless event. The brand new 5-star hotel at Chersonissos, except for its impeccable classy decor and a plethora of luxurious amenities, deeply respects the natural landscape mindfully preserving its original character. Minimal, yet luxurious details embellish this upscale hotel, making it the ultimate choice for the couple who looks for a classy, modern and effortlessly luxurious venue for their special day.

The ceremony gown is the “Vivienne” dress from the VKK Haute Couture collection. The net-lacy bodice with V-heart neckline compliments the bust. The rich A-line feather skirt moves with the body in motion and you will be able to enjoy more of it in our short video trailer. A gorgeous pair of baby pink patent Jimmy Choo’s beautifully complete this contemporary, yet elegant look.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

The tradition was infused with local musicians from Crete, escorting our bride to be in the ceremony area and rhyming traditional “mantinades”/ wishes in forms of short poems, to our couple after their ceremony. See more photos from this Elegant Beach Wedding in Crete and get inspired.

Wedding Photographers Advice

Top wedding photographers share their secrets & advice on how to get the best photos on your wedding day. What couples should avoid and how to get the best results from your photographer. Let’s hear them out!

As a Wedding & Event Planning Agency for more than 8 years, we had the opportunity to organize countless luxury weddings. As a result of that, we have interacted with many vendors and professionals in order to organize all these weddings. Who will disagree that wedding photographers are part of the top 3 professionals that are really close to the couple? Next to the wedding planner and to the bridal gown’s designer, they see the couple under the stressful process of the wedding preparation.

Like everything in life, all great achievements are based on communication. To have magnificent wedding photographs it’s important that you and your photographer have communicated all the details. To avoid any disappointments take the time and explain to your wedding photographer what do you want and how you have imagined your big day photos. Also is important to hear wedding photographers advise on the matter and trust their experience.

However, if you’ve never had the chance to talk with a professional wedding photographer before, then these golden tips from them will shed light on what is important in a wedding photography session. Also, you will discover what drives crazy the wedding photographers on a wedding day. Enjoy their words of wisdom and keep notes if you want to ask your wedding photographer the right questions.

Choosing the right photographer to document such a special day naturally builds up anxiety for couples as they understand that when the wedding is over photographs will be their memories of the day. The advice I would give to the couples choosing their wedding photographer would include the following:

If a couple feels uncertain where to begin I would suggest that they look for the style of wedding photographs they’re most attracted to, asking themselves what they wish to see in their wedding images, what colours or tones make their hearts skip, and how they would like their event to be captured. There’s is literally a sea of choices and inspiration from numerous wedding blogs which makes it so much easier for brides to get an idea on different styles in wedding photography.

On a practical basis, it does help a lot to Pin one’s favourite photographs and to create an inspiration board of one’s own. Using these as guides the bride will understand what exactly she’s looking for. A pivotal moment I guess is when – in the process of choosing between wedding photographers- you start envisioning yourself as having already been photographed by this specific creative. This is the moment when your first connection with a photographer begins.

Do pay notice on that personal connection you feel because that means you will be feeling comfortable and at ease with this person. Scheduling a Skype call and seeing how your first meeting flows is key. Some couples are reserved and would require some guidance, others have a strong vision and others are in search of that “click” thing. Personality goes a long way and you always know it in your heart when you’ve found the “one”. It’s like with an engagement ring, it goes way beyond simply the investment, you pick it because it speaks of who you are. It’s so….you!

Let me give one more advice to the couples getting ready for their wedding photo shoot.

After planning your wedding day for several months, meeting your photographer and discussing all the necessary details with them in advance is essential.

On your wedding day, you have to try your best to relax and enjoy every bit of what’s happening around you, absorb it, memorize it, and live it. Leave all the concerns to the professionals who are there for you: your wedding planner, your photographer, the whole team that is working to make this day happen the way you have envisioned.

Standing before the camera might feel awkward at first, so act naturally. Trust your photographer and allow them to guide you. Personally, I require no specific preparation for a photo shooting from my brides, it is my job to make them feel comfortable around me and in front of my camera. They don’t have to prepare or stress about it. The only thing I ask – is trust and time to be able to access my creativity and produce some beautiful images.

I always have in mind that this is the couple’s wedding day and this means you must be flexible enough to fit your photography style, aesthetics and vision in their plan and expectations. Nevertheless, it makes my life so much easier and the photos so much better when photography is an important factor while planning their wedding day.

Portraits of the bride and groom individually, right after their preparations, are often the prettiest since everyone looks perfect! Most of the times though, we must make them under time pressure. The same thing happens with family and couple’s portraits either because there is not much time for them in the wedding plan or because we don’t have much time with daylight.

One more thing often overlooked is the time we need to create images that describe the venue and the decoration at the reception. Most of the couples invest a big part of their wedding budget in them but don’t realise the time required for making beautiful images that showcase the concept and style of their wedding.

Especially when the photographer is working alone, it is of crucial importance to include in the wedding plan 30-40 min of the photographer’s time to capture the decoration and styling images when the reception venue is still with no guests. Of course, our life can be much easier when the couple books a second photographer that will fill in the wedding schedule gaps and make the plan of the day smoother.

In my experience, I have found, the key to a successful wedding event is that there must be positive and open communication between the couple to be and the photographer.

This Ancient Greece inspired wedding was full of unexpected surprises for the newlyweds. The ceremony took place at the church of Agios Spyridon at Pagkrati, where then the couple and their guests walked to their venue. As they entered the park, a surprise awaited our bride from her groom and her bridesmaids and a lovely bridal parade with traditional musicians and a bridal “she said yes” banner awaited her. ✨ ✨ The photographer @pahountisg captured perfectly the vibes of the wedding day.

A major factor is having a realistic timeline to take into account, as far as designing a wedding event. The ideal time to have the wedding ceremony is two-and-a-half hours before sunset. At this time photographs of the closest family, friends and couple are complimented when taken at the best light of the day. Τhis way we also get to have enough time with the couple as I personally feel the need to have images that show their true connection.

The best experience for the photographer and lovely couple are met inevitably with this simple rule of thumb!

Monika Kritikou

As a professional photographer, I believe that all professionals involved in a wedding have some golden pieces of advice for the couple. And in some cases, we all need a reminder of them! But the good thing is that experience is empowering us with a lot of skills. I am a fan of good communication prior to the wedding day and I believe that not only it can solve potentially negative situations, but it can also act proactively.

This is the reason I make sure to get to know the bride and groom to be months before their beautiful wedding day. Plus, I always get in touch with the wedding planner, to make sure I am in the information loop and discuss schedule, and other colleagues that I know I will be closely working with on that day, i.e. the film-maker. My motto is that we are all working toward the same goal: to give the happy couple one of the best experiences they can have. Communication is the key!

What drives us a little crazy -but at the same time makes us very creative – on the wedding day is the couple’s anxiety. However, this “madness” provides us the most spontaneous, strong and emotional clicks. Our advice would be to just act as you feel, trust your professional photographers and finally, this special day will take value over the years.

What drives my creativity at weddings are the people. Is the reason that I am working as a portrait and people’s photographer. It’s the magical unique moment during the photo session that I am losing the world around me and feel like everything happens only in the picture that I can see through my camera. My advice would be for the couple to enjoy this unique experience with all their heart.

Carefully selected traditional wedding flowers are used to create bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, hanging installations,  and table centerpieces. Flowers add happiness, romance, and joy to the wedding day.

Wedding in Antiparos

This couple decided to get married in Antiparos, surrounded by friends and family. They also wanted to make a holiday out of it for their guests traveling all the way and what can be better than the Greek islands in the summer?  Natural, elegant with elements of naivety and a little bit influenced by the Greek folk tradition were some of the characteristics that made this wedding so unique. See more from this elegant wedding in Antiparos here.

 The wedding flowers were selected according to the wedding theme. White was the main color with different shades of greens. It’s an elegant and classical combination that permits the rest of the decorations to stand out.

Lexi being half Greek always wanted to get married in Greece. So getting married in Antiparos at her brother’s island house, surrounded by friends and family, felt the right thing to do. As you can see the wedding was unforgettable and this bridal bouquet is breathtaking… even the light seems to agree with us!

Fairytale Wedding

This luxurious and fairytale wedding has stolen our hearts from the very first moment! A majestic wedding in Athenian Riviera surrounded by an idyllic landscape, breathtaking decoration and your closest people – doesn’t that just sound like the most wonderful wedding day?

Different shades of greenery & gold combined with white floating gardens, under the starry Greek sky, was the ultimate wedding decoration. Starting with the reception area, the aristocratic and warm setting made the wedding look like a dream that became real. Both the bride and groom were incredibly stylish and elegant.

This fairytale wedding organized with so much love for Vicky and George. Two Greeks born and raised in Canada, that wanted their wedding to take place in their home country in the most traditional way. So if you ask yourselves how a Greek traditional wedding looks like (including plate smashing, live bouzoukia and a warm dinner feast) here is your chance to see it with your own eyes. Get lost in this wedding flower inspiration!

The event design was focused on the hanging flowers & lights concept. We choose the white as the main color and added rich shades of gold and natural greens, with plenty of wooden details. The couple opted for a romantic & luxury wedding with traditional values, but was open to the idea of creating something spectacular. The floral design had a major influence on the final outcome. Being in a location next to the sea, flowers had to be majestic. Although it took for hours to put together this wedding table decor, we appreciate the opportunity of organizing this wedding event. The wedding decor highlighted the couple’s happiest day of their life.

Modern Wedding

The couple asked for a minimal wedding so we came up with the mix of copper and marble. We started out with the minimal design of invitations by Atelier invitations and then also took it to our tables with the creation of a unique personalized favor made out of marble that also served as a seating card.

Then we softened our minimalistic tablescape by adding the abstract floral napkins wrapped with copper napkin rings, and the unique flower mix with King proteas, orchids, perla roses, eucalyptus, eustoma. The ceremony took place in the same venue under a unique arch where king protea flowers gave a lovely contrast to Greece’s blue skies. Decoration of the cake was prepared from our team’s florist and it was another of her wild creations of the day. It was a unique day followed by a great party! What more can a planner ask for?

Island Dreams

Lexi and Olly’s elegant boho greek folk wedding

As seen in Festival Brides:

Good morning babes, and welcome to another beautiful real wedding treat here on the blog today. This wedding is for all you free-spirited Goddesses that picture a wedding with blue skies, bursting sunshine and a Mediterranean view to die for! Lexi and Olly held their wedding on the island of Antiparos in Greece, at her brother’s family home. The pair worked closely with Greek wedding planners Rock Paper Scissors to achieve their elegant, traditional folk-inspired island wedding last summer.

Traditional Greek features and colour schemes (think nautical shades of blues and white) formed the basis of the decor, complimented by hanging fruits, foliage, olive branches and herbs….

We wanted to keep the decor very elegant and natural with elements of naivety and Greek folk tradition. The flowers were all white and green with island herbs and foliage mixed in, and the dinnerware was blue and white.

Dressed in the most gorgeous fabrics and bohemian lace, the bridal party took the day by storm in the most dreamy gowns. Lexi took inspiration from her Greek roots (she’s half Greek!) to accessorise her Inbal Dror dress – she wore ancient Greek-inspired jewelry and a bespoke gold leaf crown whilst her maids followed her, draped in traditional Greek Goddess style dresses.

We are totally in love with the photography style of this collection, mastered by Yann from Life Stories….

Yann Audic was fantastic! Both Olly and I hate really staged photos and love the natural look – Yann is a master at this!

We’ve included some of the pre-wedding beach disco shots too. We wish we were there for this epic pool party – it looks SO much fun! Here’s pretty bride Lexi to fill you in on all the details. Read more

Traditional Greek Wedding at Family Home

Bride: I’m half Greek, so I always wanted to get married in Greece. We were married in Antiparos at my brother’s house. We wanted to make a holiday out of it for our guests travelling a long way! Also, Antiparos is only one of two islands which you can legally get married in your own home.

We had many Greek elements including the traditional Greek folk band procession playing for my bridal entrance and Tamata favours (a religious votive offering, depicting hearts and Greek wedding crowns). I also had Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love, symbols of love and fertility (doves, myrtle flowers, shells, pomegranates and wheat sheafs) hand embroidered on to my veil by the incredibly talented Daisy Sheldon.

Beautiful Arched Ceremony

The ceremony on the roof was conducted under a beautiful flower arch overlooking the sea. We had a mix of readings, sage smudging blessings and the official legal signings. It is traditional on the islands for the bride to be accompanied to the church by a traditional Greek band.

Elegant Greek Destination Wedding Featured in Festival BridesAll food was designed to encapsulate Greek island tradition with strong greek flavors and modern elegance. Barbarossa Paros (the best fish restaurant on the island) catered all the food and it was amazing! Greek mezze, lots of fresh fish and seafood with herbs and big bowls of fresh salads. We really wanted to keep the feeling of our own big family dinners – the waiters served everything French style on big platters which allowed people to pick and choose what they wanted to eat at the table.  Read more…

Luxury Destination Wedding in Crete by Rock Paper Scissors Events in Greece

Crete is definitely a romantic destination

Elaina was definitely one of our most delicate and fancy brides. So elegant in her manners though completely aware of the style she was going for, she didn’t settle for anything but the best for her wedding day. She wanted an organic and elegant feeling and we tried to embrace the magnificent Cretan surroundings and incorporate the absolutely stunning views to our concept. Elaina and Anis are a couple truly in love and along with their families and friends they got one great night of celebration and many more afterward in the Greek islands.

 

Bride’s words reveal the magic of true love:

“Living in New York City you meet a lot of people, but chances are those people never seem to quite catch your eye – with Anis things were different. From our first meeting, things went fast, there was an instant attraction. It wasn’t about going out to a bar, or fancy dinners, it was about adventure, excursions and getting to know each other. I took a chance and decided to join him on a work trip to LA. I thought if we get along traveling so soon in our relationship it was something worth investing in. I was right. From then on out we spent every minute together. After we got engaged we knew we didn’t want to wait to get married. So six months to the day of our engagement we said I do.”

A Jackie Kennedy Mood Wedding in Greece

The island of Meganisi is located just between Lefkada and the western mainland coasts of Greece. Right opposite from the well-known island of Skorpios, the idyllic Greek island where Aristotle Onassis married Jackie Kennedy. Meganisi is an island with few population and limited tourist development but with lush greenery and blue-green waters. Some beaches can be reached on foot and others are accessible only by boat. There is no bus on this small island of the Ionian Sea and all transport has to be done by foot or private means, like boat or motorbike.

This lovely island is where the parents of the groom are originated and the location our couple chose for their chic minimalist yet boho island wedding. Certainly, for a wedding planner, organizing a big wedding on a tiny island was a challenge in and of itself.

Our most difficult moment was figuring out how a small, typical Greek taverna could accommodate properly so many people and keep an authentic character yet elegant and unique: By taking things back to the basics, or more precisely by sophisticated simplicity. We wanted to create a simple and soft look so we used classic color combinations like brown, gold and green. We added wildflowers, mixed textures and traditionally inspired elements for a shameless boho vibe that this location would never forgive us if we didn’t.

Words from our couple: “We met during our master’s studies at Harvard Business School. We didn’t date there but friends and life moved us both to the same city we began dating while working in San Francisco in 2013. We chose to get married on the island of Meganisi. Meganisi is important to both of us because we’ve spent every summer of our relationship there. Peter’s Maternal grandparents were born on Meganisi and he’s spent every summer of his upbringing visiting the island and specifically the village of Spartochori.”

Destination Wedding in Andros

Words from our bride: “Rock Paper Scissors Events made our dream come true! Our wedding was magical, spectacular and unique. The team’s professionalism and passion created a night to remember. All our guests were quite amazed by the wedding’s setting, decoration, food/bar catering & music/lighting. For that we are grateful and we truly thank Rock Paper Scissors’ girls for their passion and enthusiasm in assisting us and making our wedding day unforgettable!!”

This destination wedding on the island of Andros will steal your heart and make you want to explore more of this island’s unique beauty and history. Bride’s origin from the island called for a ceremony on the monastery of Agia Eirini and then the dinner party at their house in the picturesque village of Stenies.

We immediately fell in love with the breathtaking view both to the sea and to green covered mountains. This is why we went for a modern rustic theme full of vibrant colors matching the surroundings and the stone built house. We created custom made wooden pergolas with olive branches and kumquat, green charger plates and ceramic pots hosted our vibrant and colorful blooms with a mix of coral peonies, spray and garden roses, dahlias, zinnia, stock and waxflower. 2.000 candles and lots and lots of fairy and bulb lights lit this stunning mansion and surrounded guests with an ambient feeling. Our dessert table was filled with traditional Andrean desserts and mouthful savories from The cakers.
