I was absolutely thrilled to capture Eleana and Willian’s meaningful day. Their al fresco wedding took place in Athens Riviera, and to me as a wedding photographer, marked the epitome of chic. Both their venue, as well as Grand Resort Lagonissi ( where we shot the bride’s preparations), are, without doubt, the perfect backdrop for any destination wedding in Greece to shine. Spacious, crisp and deliciously bathed in a milky light.

This literally gracious couple whose happiness and politeness stole my heart, had family and loved ones arriving from every corner of the world, and as Eleana lives in Dubai they all met half-way in Athens. Surrounded by her best friends and perfectly styled with silky jeweled flats and barely-there heritage jewelry.

Both the ceremony and reception were held outdoors, complete with must-see florals by Studio7 and planned by Only For You. A Grecian inspired palette with delicate touches of gold focusing around airforce-blue glassware and clear flatware topped with swathes of baby breath
which was applied to centerpieces as well as the couple’s impressive canopy, kept the couple’s decor refreshing and minimal and blended so well with the venue’s leafy setting.

Blue was the color choice for the dapper gentlemen of the groom squad, a nod to the overall palette. Somewhere between the Grand Resort Lagonissi, the sky and the ocean I felt this coincidence made for a very tasteful result in Elena and Willian’s photography. The Meltemia winds blew all day long, keeping us a bit busier than expected. But as Eleana and Willian danced, her dress fluttering in the wind around her beloved husband I felt that surge of grace caressing my cheeks!
