Who says that a small wedding party cannot be of an amazing high-end scale? Elena & Oly definitely proved that!
Elena, having established a successful business, felt the time has come to celebrate her marriage with her beautiful family and favorite friends. The couple wanted to make their wedding in Chania special for everyone around them and pampered their friends and family throughout the 3-days celebration: private sea front villa accommodation was arranged for everyone, 24-hours shuttle services, incredible celebrations of pre and post wedding events and of course comfort throughout those days says it all!
The weekend of festivities started with a pre-wedding dinner and party that took place at the luxury villa with panoramic view of the Cretan sea Elena and her family were staying in. The extensive fairylights installation above the dinner table created a magnificent fairytale effect. To the background of delightful live rock music, the bride & groom together with their guests enjoyed the gourmet dinner in buffet-style served by a high-end catering. After the dinner, everyone danced to the 80-s and 90-s classics when the couple cut the “pre-wedding cake”, covered with pink roses – Elena’s favourite flowers.
Following Elena’s vision, we distinguished the Pre-Wedding Party and Wedding Day with coloured themes. While Pre-Wedding was all about pink tones, the Wedding Day appeared with heaps of white flowers: white roses decorated the ceremony arch, the aisle and the tables at wedding reception.
Just as you would think that this event was unbeatable, the Wedding Day came with celebration on a whole different level! For the bride, it started with a surprise Bachelorette Breakfast, secretly organised by Elena’s maid of honour and Crete For Love. Loads of balloons, bridal cupcakes & desserts, sparkling wine, catered breakfast, beautiful stationary and, of course, matching swimsuits – all that was captured with professional photographic coverage and set the mood for the Big Day of Elena & Olimpiu! Then came the bridal party preparation, with the bride and her girlfriends getting their hair & make up professionally done for the Big Moment. The groom was enjoying his time with his friends and welcoming the rest of the guests arriving at the villa, while refreshing cocktails and light snacks to the sound of live violin and cello were served before the bride walks down the aisle.
This afternoon ceremony was absolutely touching! After the vows were pronounced, the white wedding cake was cut, a light lunch finger food was served and the newlyweds went for a brief photoshoot around the villa.
To combine the best of Chania, following the ceremony at the luxurious sea-view villa, the wedding dinner and party took place in a restaurant the historic port of Chania. There, the newlyweds and their guests were served exquisite flavors of the local cuisine with a gourmet twist and great cocktails. As the night went on, the DJ had everyone on the dance floor going for their best moves! It was a beautiful wedding reception, all to prime view of Chania’s famous lighthouse!
A luxury Wedding Weekend in Crete! Does it get more grande than that?
