Avery & Michael

You can channel a bit of your favorite Netflix show into your intimate vows and this dreamy Santorini elopement at Aenaon villas is all a pastel loving bride needs

Are you of the mind that 2021 wedding inspiration started on the right foot when Bridgerton landed on your screens? So are we! We were oh so enticed by its magical palettes and larger-than-life floral aesthetics, wishing that every wedding we do the following year can draw a little something from the series.  It turns out you can channel a bit of your favorite Netflix show into your intimate vows, and this dreamy Santorini elopement at Aenaon villas is here to prove it! Avery & Michael’s Santorini destination wedding is all a pastel-loving bride and groom need, with the added bonus of “up where we belong” vibes and backdrop. So, step inside their intimate romantic soiree that is sure to steal your heart!

As Bridgerton was all about palettes, blooms, and oh-so coveted romantic notes, it was already a given that Avery, a super-stylish and sentimental soul, would go for at least one. We were so excited to discover that hers was one that perfectly melded fawns, pinks, lavenders, and blues into a gorgeous scheme that not only did justice to Aenaon’s aesthetics but also brimmed with special touches and overflowed with love. And yes, you can blame it on Julia & Evita, our beautiful couple’s Santorini wedding planners, whose vision is always a step ahead, and confirmed our motto once again that “love is in the details”!

Reveling in the escapism of the season, Aenaon Villas gaily greeted us, sitting like a glamorous pearl on the hills between Oia and Imerovigli. First, let us say that as Santorini wedding photographers, it was hardly the first time we were shooting a wedding at this incredible Santorini venue, but something in the way this place calls for days that blur by in a haze of good food and sultry sunsets made us once more get all excited. Having already met and bonded with Avery and Michael and knowing all the details of how their super-sweet story of love evolved added to our fuzzy feels of seeing these two say I do.

From the heartfelt words of love eternal our couple exchanged before a spectacular deconstructed art deco arch soaked in pastel florals, to their beyond-chic portraits and first dance as Mr. & Mrs, to the delicately curated dinner strewn with fairy-lights,  artfully arranged flowers, and eclectic art de la table next to Aenaon’s sparkling turquoise infinity pool, it was one perfect moment after the next. So take a closer look into the abundance of pretty, and, by all means, save all the lovely into your Bridgerton nodding wedding boards!
