When you meet "your own" couple you have a feeling like you won jackpot.
That's exactly feeling i had after our first call with Tom and Matina. So stylish, so open-minded people which perfectly knew how their wedding should be (and how shouldn't ;)
Matina is originally from Patra (city in the Central Greece) but all her childhood she've spent in beautiful Corfu in her family's summer house. For the last 15 years she've been leaving in New York where she've met her future husband Tom. Obviously to imagine when Tom visited for the first time Corfu she felt in love with the beauty of this island, authentical Greek vibes, crystal turquoise sea and delicious food.
So the choice of the wedding's destination came in very natural way - Corfu!
We have started wedding planning 1 year in advance before the date. Matina wanted to combine very Greek elements with modern and stylish details. This is how the whole wedding's concept was born. Modern geometrical shapes and simple rustic floral design with olive branches and some white flowers. Acrylic place cards, sophisticated table plan with golden calligraphy, golden geometrical shaped candle holders, welcome signed - all these perfectly fitted in the beautiful Villa Sylva's surroundings which is one of the most elegant and luxury wedding venue in Corfu.
The speechless Matina's wedding dress from Carol Hannah Bridal and ideal Louboutin shoes created perfect bridal look.
The bride was walking the aisle with father with accompaniment of Greek traditional musicians. The ceremony was so touching and full of tears of happiness.
The reception took the place at the pool's area of the villa. Needless to say that night continued with dancing...and swimming ;)
It was unforgettable day!
