If we had a grandmother born and raised in Greece, you’d better believe we’d be dragging our friends and family for a dreamy seaside wedding. But it’s not so easy when you reside on another continent, three flights and one ferry ride away…
Antonia and Jonathan knew how meaningful (and obviously beautiful) a wedding on Antonia’s grandmother’s home island of Ithaca could be. Scrapping the South African wedding plans, they decided to take the plunge into destination wedding planning.
So, how do you pull off a destination wedding on another continent so flawlessly? We believe, and it seems our bride & groom do as well, that it’s all in finding the right planner. Nervous about the idea of organizing such a faraway affair, Antonia was released from the stress after finding the perfect planner, Cleopatra.
It’s possibly the most traditional elements of the day that have us falling head over heels. The Greek Orthodox ceremony, with classic stefanas (Greek wedding crowns) honored Antonia’s heritage and the island so fittingly. Not wanting to detract from the already gorgeous Greek Orthodox chapel, the couple & styling team decorated with Greek olive branches & natural complements.
