Ellyn and Michael’s Wedding Day
Olives and Succulents are some of our favorite elements to combine when designing a wedding day. Ellyn and Michael chose Kinsterna Hotel in Monemvasia for their wedding day and the aesthetics of the venue called for an organic decoration and muted shades to complement the earthy tones and the intricate contemporary yet utterly classic wedding location. May we say we were inspired by Tuscany? It’s true. The architecture of Kinsterna Hotel features classic Tuscan inspired buildings yet has a contemporary glass design and the most glorious water lily pond we’ve ever seen in Greece!
Our lovely couple wanted a warm affair for their family and friends, a welcoming traditional greek wedding where they could celebrate being in love. The color palette was sage green and white with golden details and olive leaves. A palette like this always makes our organic hearts beat excitedly because in Think Happy Events we believe in the power of simplicity and that less is definitely more if you want a picture-perfect, elegant wedding day. Ellyn and Mike had an intimate orthodox wedding, got showered in what felt was a huge amount of rice and laughed their hearts out with their friends and family! What made their wedding day fairytale-like? They rode off in the sunset in a horse carriage. Adorable!
Since all of our guests traveled for the States, we wanted to give them a taste of Greece. We curated one of the most beautiful dessert tables we’ve ever created! It was filled with delicious greek inspired treats and traditional greek delights. Needless to say, everyone was thrilled to try them! For the dinner setting a flower garland with succulents and summer florals set the organic tone! Moreover, we used a lot of fairy lights like we almost always do to bring that hygge-like feeling to the evening and encourage the warmth and friendliness among the guests.
As they danced their first dance as husband and wife (Dance Me to the End of love that was!) the night felt like magic. For a wedding planner that’s the ultimate gift. Making sure that another couple had a perfect day, that another loved story got its ever after is why we do that.
Ellyn and Mike, you had us all in tears! We hope you stay like this forever!
