Wedding on the beach in Crete | Evangelia & Lorenzo
You are about to be taken away by this colorful wedding on the beach! Evangelia and Lorenzo had a beautiful wedding overflowing with colorful flowers and creative details! Their day was so special and romantic, we are still swooning over all the lovely images!
The bride got ready for her special day in the beautiful Mythos Palace Hotel.
“When I tried on the dress for the first time I knew immediately that it was going to be my wedding dress. It was love at first sight!
Evangelia was wearing a romantic and airy wedding dress from the Fashion collection of Pronovias. It was extremely beautiful with silk, chiffon and Swarovski details. As Evangelia mentioned: “My favorite part of the dress was the back…just fantastic! It was a simple dress, but very elegant and chic, a perfect dress for a beach wedding”.
“I especially loved the flower arch at the ceremony and all the decorative details… I wanted my wedding to have two colors: white and coral. I think white is very elegant, but I also wanted a touch of color for the ceremony on the beach. We had a handmade drawing of a coral on our invitations, wedding favors and on the seating cards. The wedding cake had white and coral colors too, with shells, starfishes and corals. In the middle of the tables we put a fishbowl with sand and a white candle, shells and starfishes, with a lot of small candles on the table. We put a lot of lights, torches and white lanterns. We gave our guests white panama hats before the ceremony. The hats werea beautiful and funny idea!”
About the wedding location, wedding planner Annika Schneider mentioned “The location by the sea was a simple beach bar so the task was to transform this place into a beautiful ceremony and reception venue. The plan was to create a classy beach atmosphere with orchids as the main flower theme for the ceremony arch and bridal bouquet”.
The groom was wearing a very stylish linen Armani suit.
“The most beautiful moment for me was the ceremony… I was very excited and it was very touching to see all the guests, men and women crying!”
“The ceremony was a civil wedding with a Greek official and my Godfather, who speaks Italian. His speech was unforgettable!”
“The pink sand represented my family and the blue my husband’s family. Our parents put both pink and blue sand in a new bottle that represented our new family. It was a nice idea!”
“It was hard to organize a wedding from another country… I went to Crete only 5 days in May before the wedding… and the wedding was in September! However I had a perfect wedding with the professional work of my wedding planners and so many many e-mails!”
Evangelia and Lorentzo met at a rock concert, where Lorenzo was the guitarist and singer in the band.
When Evangelia and Lorenzo were cutting the wedding cake, the rock song “Need your love” by Status Quo, was playing. “It was a crazy moment, just like the party!”, the bride shared with us.
“The lights at our wedding on the beach made a magic atmosphere, just like… the movie Mamma Mia!”, Evangelia told us.
