Deep into planning my own destination wedding (ten weeks to go!) and hitting that “medium-high” stress level, it’s lovely to see a destination bride success story. Bride Jade relished in being her own planner, despite the occasional stresses, of her hopelessly romantic and rustic olive grove wedding in Cyprus.
The scene is stunning – the old-world monastery decorated with white blooms and abundant baby’s breath (making a comeback!) was surrounded by rows of stunning olive trees, just absolutely portrait ready for a sunset session with Karina Leonenko. We noticed too, the couple even planted their own olive tree on the grounds to commemorate their new life as husband and wife.
Planning from far away didn’t stop bride Jade from pulling out all the stops. The wedding featured everything from lush florals, a string quartet, video tributes, local wine favors, plenty of Pinterest touches, a trendy floral cake and even a fireworks show. Girl, we’d love to see those planning spreadsheets, bravo!
