Need a poolside wedding reception soaked in blooms? These colorful Greek Island vows on the island of Paros will fuel your destination wedding goals!
When it comes to vowing your love in Greece, you can always expect to experience something different across the Greek islands, as each comes with its very own distinct character. So are you in need of a poolside wedding reception soaked in blooms? Read on because this colorful Greek island wedding at Paros island is bound to fuel your destination wedding goals!
For Giorgina & Khsi, getting married in Greece meant getting the opportunity to combine their larger loves in life, aka scoring a perfect Greek island that would be equal parts languid and glam, but also fuse their getaway with their closest friends and family with a serious dose of summer.
Paros, with its whitewashed hillside towns and covert swimming caves, powder-sands, and romantic quays, captured our bride and groom’s fancy. In Paros, one gets to enjoy that “boutique” feel while tasting scrumptious long meals, luxuriating in fiery red sunsets, and mingling with elegant crowds at the more cosmopolitan Naousa, the town that Truman Capote himself fell for. They flew in their beloved ones from all over the world, booked the prettiest Cycladic villa with a sparkling pool and views for days, and set their vows atop a terrace sure to make their I do’s a real wowser!
Their partner in … “love”? Designer and planner Vasso Vantali from MBW Events. Having worked countless times with this wonderful Paros wedding planner, we knew our beloved couple was in for a treat. Vasso, a true Paros lover, and connoisseur fused their I do’s with exuberant hues beginning right from their wedding invitation suite and papeterie. Employing a characteristic Paros design and the emblematic for the island hues of blue and red, she hinted the artisanal side of the island in florals and evil eyes one comes across on embroideries all across the island’s expanse.
But there was more to this Paros wedding’s design to adore. We loved how Georgina picked the color of her bridesmaid’s dresses borrowing from the deep blue color of the Aegean Sea around these parts, how her chantilly lace gown coordinated so perfectly with the spirit of the island and the lace artworks that decorate its lavish mansions. Enter the wedding ceremony terrace; we came across our lovebirds’ circular arch trimmed with reds, sunny yellows, and luscious sunset-colored blooms, while the reception portico by the pool was festooned with a floral arbor at the bride and groom’s table, joyful potted arrangements and oh-so-chic blue and white dinner accents to make any newlyweds and their guests swoon.
The party was one of those incredibly vibrant dance-a-thons you can only expect in Greece and the one remedy for the island chills one gets when saying I do in the Cyclades. Guests threw off their red pashminas and beach blankets (courtesy of Giorgina and Khsi) and joined together in an all-nighter of fun, live music, and boogie under the stars. As Paros wedding photographers, we promise you they surely upped the ante for this season’s weddings on this remarkable island!
