Whenever we get asked to plan a pre-wedding soiree on the shore our creative cells start tingling! When Lindsey and Constantine asked us to create theirs we knew that we were going to be in for a treat.  Planning the layout, design, florals, and lightning is what we love to do and the beautiful beaches of Messenia are the perfect backdrop for a seaside pre-wedding celebration. Feeling the breeze, the sand on our feet, and the sound of the waves really brought us back to the simple pleasures in life.

The elegant seaside bash was held at the postcard perfect Riki in Marathopolis right before the immaculate vistas of the Ionian Sea. The sweet welcome started on the sand verbena with a quintessentially chic dessert station, brimming with sugar and gold paste treats, white-blue Chinoiserie and golden accents, dressed by pink and blush peonies, garden roses and many spray roses to complement the setting.

We created a welcome parlor with rattan tables and wicker weave swing chairs in classic white and beige so the couple’s guests could wander through and enjoy the view.

Desert awnings were employed at the dinner parlor to provide hefty shading, whilst clusters of lanterns were placed over the tables aside glass bubble vases decorated with minuscule gardens of greenery, roses, and wisteria, placed inside macrame nets, all giving a soft romantic glow around the venue.

White-blue porcelain, rose-gold silverware, and teal Roman glass were thoughtfully arranged at the tablescapes which focused around handmade macrame runners topped with fine tile ceramics and ornate copper – toned trays and candlesticks, crystalline votive candles and lush blooms.

We loved the about-to-be-weds thoughtfulness of their guests, providing liberal seating and ongoing shuttle transfers home, all spelled on whimsical calligraphy boards.

Photographer Thanasis Kaiafas did an amazing job capturing every special moment and we are very grateful to share some of the stunning images.

Stay tuned for Lindsey and Constantine’s gorgeous wedding!

When I say I love you more

I don’t mean I love you more than you love me …

I mean love you more than the bad days ahead of us

I love you more than any fight we will ever have 

I love you more than any obstacle that can try and come between us

I  love you the most.

_Harriet & Matt

Harriet and Matt became a definite winner in our hearts soon as we met,  and their dapper Mykonian wedding would eventually turn out to be one of our all-time favorites, just like the loving couple themselves.

We’re always thrilled to see how many miles people travel to get to this great glamour destination that despite the A-listers flocking every summer always manages to ooze authenticity, flair, and cubist whitewashed charm. Keeping this concept in mind we styled Harriet and Matt’s wedding and reception with larger than life, all – ivory and cream florals revamping the Cycladic aesthetics of their private villa with garlands, elegant ivy swags and dangling crystal lanterns, as well as canopy -sofas and a massive ceremonial deck on the water that brought their rite’s utterly romantic atmosphere full circle.
For their reception the couple chose one of the most iconic venues, the headline-making Nammos, which we were thrilled to decorate with rows of wisteria and sweet golden glows everywhere. Having their names shine in party lighting was just the beginning as the two arrived by sea with their guests joyfully cheering. The outstanding all-night bash had just begun but didn’t stop there as these two party-lovers had one more surprise for their loved ones, an epic pool party the next day where everyone got to unwind with signature cocktails, party floats indulging in the happy Mykonos summer luxury vibes.
We’d like to thank our photographer Nikos Psathoyiannakis for his beautiful images and our videographer Nikos Dimou for his incredible narrative.

A little pink makes the bride and groom wink and this classic blush wedding at Costa Navarino has been such a pleasure to style and plan. Aregu and Arpad are a warm, classy couple who love classic romantics and smart design.
Their delicate palette, ranging from elegant whites employed for the bride’s creamy peony bouquet and the overall styling of the reception welcome tables , to gentle pinks and grassy sages on the wedding reception table decor, was fused with accents of gold and taupe, crystal votive lighting, as well as monogrammed details, creating a well- balanced feel of visual harmony and finesse.
We’re always very content to work for an event on the grounds of the dapper Romanos – the couple’s luxury collection resort venue. Long rectangular mirror tables were placed poolside on the decked terrace aside rows of white and gold lanterns to add an extra touch of warmth to the charming backdrop.
We would like to thank the couple’s photographer Liam Collard for the beautiful shots of our work.
