If you’re in need of a little dose of pretty today, then you’ve come to the right place. Because a bride in a beautiful Reem Acra dress transports us right into wedding heaven…
This US couple came to Greece along with 150 of their close friends to have an Orthodox ceremony on Crete. Neither had ever been to the island before, but they were taken with a wedding Sara from SP Weddings had organized there previously and wanted a similar set up. The venue is a 16th century farmhouse… Go on and get whisked away by this lovely affair!
The Bride on choosing Greece: “Both of our families have Greek ties. My entire extended family lives in Greece and I’ve spent almost every summer there, so it is very much a part of my identity and formation. Nick’s family has been in the US for a few generations but still feel a close connection to Greece. Having the wedding in Crete gave our families an opportunity to meet and vacation together in that island paradise.”
On their DIY work: “Our extraordinary coordinator did most of the DIY! She made the hanging poofs, candles around the pool, table settings, and so much more!”
Her tip on planning a destination wedding: “My advice would be find an excellent venue and an excellent wedding planner. Planners know how to organize weddings; if your hired planner gets you then you won’t have to deal with planning anxiety thousands of miles away. Or, you won’t have to deal with much of the planning at all.”
