Celebrate: Jeanelle & Adam

We had a few couples that just got the rough end of the stick when it came to Covid and their wedding. These two were about 8 weeks from go-time when we had to call the whole thing off. May 2020 was their original day, and our groom had an inkling that this was not going to recover anytime soon. And so they postponed. And kept things on hold. And on hold. And they eloped. And things were still on hold … and then THIS summer (yes, summer 2021) they decide to have a reception in October. And so we did. We had the best party we could have. With all the beautiful flowers and all the fun drinks and the right people on the dance floor. And we celebrated! And I’ve never been so happy for someone to finally get to put on their gorgeous wedding dress! I adore this lovely lady and know their future if going to be bright!

Greek Goddess

As some of you may know, I just got back from Greece.  The islands were magical and beautiful and you could get lost looking into the ocean for hours.  IMG_0296

This whimsical trip got me thinking about a Grecian Wedding  (of course).  While the above photo I took in Santorini, it was in the posh neighborhoods of Athens that I saw multiple bridal stores. Think the Athenian Rodeo Drive.  Where I spotted MaxMara – be still my heart – I think my husband even saw one and said “I would love to see you in that dress” (vow renewal anyone?!). The gown selections were gorgeous and the unique head pieces were breathtaking.  It made me want to run to JoAnns and break out my needles, feathers and glue gun.

As much as I loved these gowns, I couldn’t stop thinking about the Perfect Grecian Wedding, and I felt that I should search for a little inspiration should I find myself with a Greek Wedding anytime soon. I die for this Marchesa dress below and am whisked away with the softness of all the flowy gowns, golden leaves, and stunning blues.  If it were me, I would focus more on whites everywhere, and use some calming blues to contrast the typical Greek true blue in the surrounds.  Get inspired by the beauty of Greece.
