Delightfully Pretty & Wildly Fun Greek Destination Wedding

You all know how obsessed I am with Greek Island weddings by now, right? From classy Santorini destination weddings to our own Milos engagement – everything about weddings in Greece makes my heart melt. Today, we have an ever-so-pretty and wildly fun wedding from the island of Hydra to share – featuring its own authentic charming style.

The homes of Hydra, much like many of the islands of the Aegean, are built into the pretty white cliffs forcing residents and tourists alike to travel by foot, or better yet donkey! Scott and Kristi took advantage of this notion with their light and airy photographer Penelope Photos for a hilariously fun donkey tour through town – resulting in the most beautiful candid photos!

Following their tour, the two married as one would hope in front of that aqua blue sea with every detail so fine, so organic and so-so-pretty melting into the natural beauty of the island. Their altar, our favorite detail, was filled with lush white flowers and rustic green olive branches. We can’t get enough!

The Destination

Scott and Kristi become one under holy matrimony at Sunset Restaurant Hydra.

Hydra is not only charming, picturesque, modern but also quite a traditional Greek island – with elegant grey stone, aristocratic houses and cozy alleys. The island welcomes people from all around the world who will definitely ride a beautiful donkey, which is so characteristic of the island since no car could reach our houses built on stones.

Therefore, Hydra posed a unique destination for this absolutely romantic, sunset wedding. The food was delicious, the drinks strong and the bride (and the view) quite beautiful.

The Dress & Attire

The attire was semi-formal – think Grecian beach wedding chic with an air of classic toga. Suit jackets were not required, and of course – neither were shoes! Sandals are always a good idea for island weddings! 

The wedding colors – pastels and neutrals – let all other hues blend together and evoke a real-life artistic painting feel.

Special Moments & Traditions

At this unique never-ending-surprises wedding, we enjoyed the arrival of the legendary Frigate “Libertad”, honoring the Argentine Republic 200th anniversary of independence, that was carrying a message of peace and friendship to the world called the “Bicentennial Voyage”. 

Our bride and groom were photographed with the Argentinian crew who was delighted to have witnessed a beautiful wedding so far away from home and yet ever so familiar.
