These two sweethearts jetted off from Canada to vow their love at the ancient city. As their families hail from both Greece and Canada, it was vital for them to share their story and journey so far, giving their guests a peek into what makes their relationship tick and sharing the meaningful promises and dreams in their vows. It was such an emotional moment to see their happy tears and warm embraces, their parents so proud;
From the bridal preps on Island Private House, where Alanna slipped into her crisp Allure Bridals gown and Sam Edelman metallic sandals, to the all-romantic processional, the rose petal toss, and the superb reception in the back of the garden steeped in ocean vistas and thousands of light bulbs that went on over the tablescape, there was no moment we did not cherish.
Photography tips for Brides and Grooms who wish to have incredibly-lit reception images
As destination wedding photographers, we’ve had the privilege of capturing all kinds of nuptials, from lavish and grand celebrations to microvows and elopements. What the most magical of them had in common was lighting. We understand that this is an element of the wedding reception that usually sounds more of a functional nature, but believe us when we say: the bulbs and candles you select will ultimately make your images right after the sun goes out. Go for sweet, orange, or rose gold Edison mega light bulbs in a vintage style, as Alanna and Sophocles did, and pair them to swathes of pillars underneath while avoiding anything blue, purple, or green. These will give your skin warm and peachy tones, illuminating your images perfectly and turning your setting into something truly spectacular.
