An effortlessly elegant summer affair in Greece calls for an all-white look, which was exactly what Alexandra and Dimitri picked for their destination soirée. The couple decided to come all the way from the USA to tie the knot in Greece where Dimitris roots are from and Golden Apple Weddings was present and planned their wedding day to perfection on Rhodes island.
The couple choose Kallithea Springs, one of the most iconic venues on the island for their special day which certainly sat the wedding bar high. Since this is an historical venue the couple wished to accent the beauty of the dome and surrounding gardens, so they decided on a pallet of timeless white garden roses, fresh olive branches and hints of dusty blue and champagne hues.
The preparations of the bride and her bridesmaids took place at the Apollo blue hotel, Alexandra looking absolutely stunning in her wedding gown while her golden stilettos added a touch of sparkle to her outfit. Her bridesmaids went for two-color dresses, the half wore dusty blue dresses and the others flower dresses.
The ceremony took place in the outside area of the venue which was the ultimate location for this warm summer day. Kay Creations created the most sensual florals with a nod to Greece by setting up an aisle way overflowing with garden roses and fresh greenery leading to an impressive wooden arch which was partly decorated with olive leaves and white flowers.
Alexandra walked down the aisle accompanied by her father while a live violinist played the Cannon-D in the background. The ceremony was officiated by the cousin of Dimitri who personally knows the couple from day one so she included funny and personal stories of the two before the couple red their hand-written promises to each other, every heartfelt moment of the day was perfectly captured by Sofia Petridena who was also a family member of the groom.
Once the ceremony was over guests walked to the champagne wall, which was an impressive wall-full-of-greenery, to welcome everyone before the reception. Long monastery wooden tables were waiting for the guests set up inside the historical dome. The tables were topped with a long garland of olive leaves, dusty blue napkins and candles in a myriad of sizes. Two open bars were set up for the guests and a space for the DJ under a canopy of twinkling lights.
