We’ve got the sweetest cliffside ceremony and coziest Ios Club reception for your perusal today, in celebration of the micro wedding, of course. Candice and Manuel live away from a lot of family and friends in Bahrain, so guests would have to travel no matter what the destination. They were so mesmerized by the beauty of the Cyclades in Greece that they decided on a week-long wedding vacay that included every celebration from the bachelor party through the wedding. Just another perk of a small guest list, wouldn’t you say?
Thanks to Alicia Nacenta Photography and Think Happy Events for sharing their story!
The bouquet and ceremony flowers by Petridis Creations are exactly how you can keep it simple, but stunning. Protea forever!
Love our bride’s airy but chic Rime Arodaky wrap wedding dress.
The groom actually came in via boat!
Candice says, Once we decided on the location, we worked with the very talented Think Happy Events, who are based in Athens and so connected to the best local suppliers, to transform our ideas into reality. We worked with them to create every last detail and could not be happier with how it turned out.
It took around 9 months to plan. Everything was going smoothly until the Greek ferry companies decided to strike, with two-days notice, on the days many of our guests were due to arrive! Luckily, we had loads of champagne and such good feelings we were able to laugh through it and everyone was able to arrive in time to share most of the week with us!Cycladic Gem Luxury Villa boasts pretty much the perfect cliffside ceremony spot EVER, no?
After searching across the globe, literally, we decided to work with Alicia Nacenta Photography because their portfolio of work was unique. We were looking for a photographer who was able to capture the moments of our wedding naturally and tell a story using their skills and talent. Ali did this perfectly for us. She was with us for one week, and all of our guests commented how at ease she made them feel, even forgetting she was there. Her post-production and how she was able to bring the feeling of the day into the pictures is a special gift.
Now onto that magical sunset Ios Club reception…
So fun! Congrats, C + M!
