LAURA and HENRI
Blush & Coral, A beautiful proposal in Lake Vouliagmeni, Athens Riviera, Greece
There is something truly romantic in a summertime engagement. Though Christmas and the deep deep autumn are seasons perfect for an engagement and cuddling up by the fire, summer has something special about it. We were inspired by the couple that travels the word together when designing this concept and a lakeside picnic seemed like the perfect spot to say yes. Imagine a cozy set up with pillows and blankets, ice cold orange + essence de Vanille cocktails and flowers that beamed in the sunlight!
We are completely in love with Laura’s summer assemble; silk crop top, ruffled skirt and loose waves. Moreover, Daniel in a forever chic and breezy linen shirt and trousers combo is menswear dressing for summer goals. Perfect for strolling around hand in hand with your sweetheart, right?
Magnetic by nature, the coral peonies in a straw basket were a summery perfection and the go-to flowers for our romantic lakeside proposal. A soft summer blanket and cozy hippie pillows gave just enough boho elements to our elegant shoot. However, what made us swoon was the rich colored oval cut sapphire diamond ring in white gold. The answer was – and forever will be – an immediate yes!
Apart from the extrêmement chic setting, we loved the laid back atmosphere of a lakeside proposal. The calming effect of the water, the ambiance of the landscape and the relaxed feeling of the lake made us fall in love with the concept of saying yes overlooking a place like this! Taking a stroll around the lake, kissing underneath the full bloomed trees or dreaming of forever with each other is how every proposal should be like.
After all, we believe that engagements are even more romantic than weddings because they feed on the excitement! So, to anyone who is planning on popping the question; be creative and design a picnic for two! The answer will be definitely yes!
