LAURA AND HENRI
Early Summer Lakeside Coral Wedding Inspiration near the Athenian Riviera
Love can take you to places you’ve never thought. Love being eternal, love being abiding, love being why we are here, this enormous force tying two people together is capable of everything! When you are in love the towns, the cities, the continents mean nothing. Love is what can turn a map into zero digits. Sometimes you travel the whole world just to lose yourself in the eyes of the one you love. So, is an editorial shoot for all those lovers who moved continents to be with each other. We got inspired by the ones who loved through screens, through computers, through virtual reality, and in the end they made it. This is essentially a modern love story.
Captured in Vouliagmeni Lake, where the waters are known for their healing powers, this editorial is all about vibrant but delicate summer flowers and dreaming in the beautiful light of the Athenian Riviera. We started with a breathtaking proposal picnic by the water and ended in a glorious wedding ceremony overlooking the rocks. This shoot has something for everyone!
Coral peonies, speckled roses, delicate grass and purple wildflowers by Redboxdays were the stars of our floral décor. Rich colored florals are always a lovely way – if not the only way- of incorporating color into your wedding day without it getting over the top. We choose flowers in season and their delicate smell filled the atmosphere all day long. We loved the
coral touches, inspired by Pantone’s color of 2019.
Our stationery by Party and Co. was an ode to the fully bloomed gardens and a love so colorful it makes you happy. Semitransparent paper in a floral water colored background had the perfect balance between being bold and romantic, simple with a hint of maximalism.
The wedding dress by Katia Delatola reminded us of summer sunsets in Greece. In a delicate A-line with luxurious embroidery and lace, it hugged Priscilla’s body in the most delicate way. The handmade belt with the pearls and the flower shoes by Kalogirou gave a touch of sophistication and elegance to the overall look perfect for every summer wedding.
What we believe needs an editorial of its own is the engagement ring by Lousta Thysiadi Jewels. In the most luscious deep blue shade, this sapphire and diamonds ring was getting all the “I dos”! After all, far from the conventional choice of diamond engagement rings and with a character of its own, the deep blue stone reflected the sun beautifully! We love experimenting with different stones for engagement rings. Sure, diamonds are a girl’s best friends but let us just say how sapphires are the
girl bosses of precious stones!
Kevin wore a debonair grey suit by Sagiakos, perfect for a summer wedding with its laid back luxury. The matching shoes and overall styling are an inspiration for all the soon to be grooms that want something different from blue and black.
Our art de la table featured gold-rimmed plates and purple crystal glasses. The gold cutlery sparkled under the sun and what stole our hearts were the name cards with the porcelain blooms that smelled like cotton and spring. The rich colored flower arrangements and the tall candle holders screamed elegance and sophistication in one of the most unique tables settings of the year.
Our wedding cake by Pavlov’s lab was crisp white with gold trimming. To add a pop of color the coral peonies gave some understated tropical vibes and laid back luxury to this vanilla and raspberry filled wedding cake!
To celebrate love, the Bully Bar created the best and most delicious bespoke cocktails we’ve had in months! They used rum, raspberries and summer fruits to create cocktails that matched our couple’s flair and intricate love story! We will always be huge advocates of open bars and custom-made cocktails! Not only they are different and unique but they also give a new taste to every wedding. Whether you like rum or tequila, strawberries or mint, a bar on wheels will be the ultimate attraction to your wedding day. Frankly, what more do you need?
Lastly, our shoot ended with a wonderful sunset, typical for the Athenian Riviera! Take a dip into George Liopeta’s imagery and Yanni Hood’s perfect videography of young love overcoming all obstacles!
