Anna & Steve - Porto Heli

As feautured on Style me Pretty - 01/2017.


Anna and Steve are from New York but they had already decided to have their wedding in Greece. To be honest this was something that everyone was expecting since both of them have Greek origins and they visit Greece almost every summer. Both of them were very excited but no one could ever imagine how wonderful this wedding was going to be.

The location they have selected had a very special meaning for them since they have spent many beautiful summer vacations together there. Porto Cheli, a beautiful location on the mainland but it is very close and easily connected from the sea with very nice islands and the transfer can be done with small speed boats or traditional ones.

It combines the beauty of the sea and the greenery of the mainland. One could say that it is a very unique place of elegance & finesse with beautiful beaches and many things that keeps the visitors interest. The main goal was to make sure all the guests enjoyed all the natural beauty and why the couple had chosen that specific location for their wedding.

The location is very special for Anna and Steve and to make it more special; we found a wonderful villa to be their venue for the reception and the party of the wedding. This private house was in the middle of a beautiful garden and had also a private beach. The view to the sea and the whole area was unique.

All the guests arrived 3 days earlier and the couple welcomed everyone ta the rooftop of a luxury hotel from which you can enjoy the most magnificent sunset. The next morning Anna and Steve along with their guests sailed to the beautiful beaches of the area.

The big day is here! Anna and her bridesmaids are getting ready at the villa and Steve at the hotel nearby having his family and friends there. Everyone is very excited. Everything is ready. Special lighting at the garden and the pool. The top of the dance floor as decorated with thousands small lights at the top. High centerpieces of white flowers and greenery where placed on the tables. Candles were placed all around. The outside area of the villa was also ready to welcome the guests after the cocktail at the upper veranda. The stairs was decorated with thousands for candles and hidden small fireworks for the entrance of the couple. Time flies so fast. Anna is getting in the car and the bridal party follows. The small chapel looks as if it is in the middle of the sea. The decoration matches the beauty of the surroundings. Small white flowers with few green details at the kiosk and the arches.

After the cocktail, guests are going down to the pool for the dinner. The couple is going down the stairs dancing to their guests and families. Dinner is over and the cake is in the middle of the dance floor. The MC is asking everyone to join them for the cutting of the cake and the first dance. The party started with a wonderful show of fireworks and lasted until the early morning hours.
