When it comes to dream destination weddings, Greece is at the top of the list. How do you make it even more fabulous? Fill it with beautiful blooms, crystal accents, and two white-tie grooms! For their wedding celebration, Brian and Joseph invited their nearest and dearest to the south coast of Athens for a weekend filled with fun. Guests marveled at the land and seascapes, incredible food, and stylish touches at every turn. The couple’s beloved dog Moby even got to join in on the festivities! Beautifully shot by Anna Roussos, the entire day is a true celebration of love.
From the Groom, Brian… When we first got engaged, we both knew that we wanted a destination wedding. We decided to send ballots to our guests with three dream destination options and sent them to about 40 of the guests on our list. We revealed our destination at our engagement party, which featured a beauty pageant-style contest with 3 of our good friends representing each destination. At the end of the party, our emcee announced Greece as the winner with about 80% of the votes!
We knew that the main event simply had to be an all-white affair, for grooms, the wedding party, and guests alike, which looked like a total dream when it all came to fruition. We got our wedding apparel from Enzo Custom in Washington DC they designed our bespoke suits with gorgeous Loro Piana fabric and turned my “short suit” reception outfit dream into a reality.
We cared a lot about the floral arrangements and lighting, two décor aspects that we’d seen make or break a wedding. The 12 Events brought our vision to life with pastel blooms, crystal chandeliers, sparkling golds and of course whites.
The best advice I received is when a friend recommended that I step back from all of the craziness and take a few mental snapshots during the ceremony and reception. Those specific moments where I paused to take it all in stick out in my mind. The wedding goes by so quickly, and soon all you’ll have are the memories – and the amazing photos and videos, of course!
