Wedding Planner, Tracie, from You’re The Bride was inspired to create this Santorini shoot because of the pure beauty of the land, breathtaking views, crystal blue water, and her love of Greek food. It is on her bucket list to travel there someday to experience all that Santorini offers before she has to renew her passport. She decided to bring Santorini to her in the way of choosing Wahby Park adjacent to Blossom Heath Inn located in St. Clair Shores, MI until she can make that exciting trip!
The shoot took place under a white washed gazebo with a blue dome roof which symbolizes the architecture in the famous greek village. Killer Creations Photography and Videography captured the beautiful details created by Flowers by Amore from the tablescape centerpiece with blue water representing the Aegean sea adorned with orchids, hydrangeas, and cobalt blue votives. Different heights of clear glass holders with floating candles were among the beautiful decor. U Design Ghost Chairs provided white ghost chairs which we paired with cobalt blue and white pillows to add a punch of color.
The theme was continued onto the gorgeous cake with a quatrefoil pattern, blue dome roof and trailing green orchids created by Bella e Dolce Cakes placed on a gold satin linen. Sand filled cylinders with cobalt blue votive candles sat below the cake which lent to the feel of the spectacular beaches that provide a picturesque ambiance.
Crisp white china embellished by gold charger plates, cobalt blue glassware, and gold flatware sat on white satin linens along with royal blue napkins provided by Event Theory were perfect to tie into our look. Thomas’s Catering provided some beautiful cobalt pieces including bowls with a leaf and grape pattern for each place setting along with Mediterranean fish vessels which we embellished with a sprig of hydrangea on the cake and main table. A large cobalt blue urn and white lantern were included in our design as well.
Olive oil guest favors crowned with green tops to complement our colors were provided by Olive Vinegar. Flair Necessities created a grand suite of stationary pieces including a wedding invitation, menu cards, place cards personalized by Calligrapher, Leah E. Moss and favor tags with a watercolor design with gold and cobalt blue backing.
Our models, Ciara and Chad looked amazing in their attire and jewelry styled by Gina’s Bridal. Make-up by Nicole Rashid-Rall made sure our bride was a glowing perfection. Katie of New You Salon created a greek goddess hairstyle to fit with our theme which included a gold branches leaf headband.
