Words from our groom: 

“We first met in the university auditorium during a risk management lecture, while studying in The Netherlands.
But I knew that it needs more than bragging about my risk management knowledge to impress a woman like Elina. Maybe the saying that love comes from the heart but passes through the stomach is what could impress her? “Let’s give it a try”, I said and enrolled for cooking lessons. Most likely the 4 course meal on my birthday was not the only reason to win her heart but it certainly helped.

Studies became once more the excuse to spend more time together when Elina moved to Switzerland to study German. For the proposal I prepared a little paradise for her in a unique place in Switzerland: Roses were flowing down a river, champagne was sparkling in glasses, candles were flickering on the cliffs and a story board was describing our love journey.

The wedding mirrored our relationship but even more so my time with Elina: A big glamorous exciting party!”

An Alluring Athens Wedding: Some women have fantasized about their dream wedding since they were little girls, but certain details of Elina’s nuptials were settled the moment she was born. “Elina comes from Athens, Greece and, according to Greek tradition, a wedding must take place at the bride’s place of birth,” says the groom. “Besides, there were many more guests from Elina’s side and it would have been inconvenient to ask 200 Greeks to come to Switzerland.” The couple was more than happy to host a destination wedding in the Athens Riviera and, thankfully, their loved ones agreed. “They were very positive and most of them used it as an excuse to book a vacation in Greece.”

“We had been a little bit unlucky with the first wedding planner as not only did she lack in organizational skills, but also she did not contribute any creative ideas. We [then] fully relied on Rock Paper Scissors and there were no issues [after] they took over from our first wedding planner.” Elina and Patrick knew they couldn’t control everything from afar, so they relied heavily on their local resources in Greece. “We had to be really trustful of the local vendors and professionals and we could not control every aspect ourselves. [Once] we started working with Rock Paper Scissors, we were much more relaxed because we had our people, who knew exactly what was important to us, on the spot.” Continue reading…
