Wow, where do we even begin with this stained glass wedding story?! We’re soaking up every last detail of this sun-splashed inspo overlooking the Aegean Sea, from the color-blocked gazebo to the glass tile calligraphed menus to the gentle motion of the distinctively luxe gowns. There are times we’re rendered, speechless, and this is one of those times. Though we’ll happily bask with you in the glory + majesty that is this Santorini wedding inspiration that took nods from Sofia Copolloa’s signature style.
How can we put our devotion to these images from Sotiris Tsakanikas into words? Truth be told, we can’t! But I guess we could start by saying their splendor is unmatched.
Santorini Glam Weddings brings us color, freshness and whimsy in their distinctive designs + calligraphy employed in this Santorini story. They were clearly in their element!
The Secret Owl defines itself as a storytelling photography workshop, and we’d say they live up to the expectation!
Pampas grass plumes out in wheat-colored glory in these arrangements from Betty Flowers Santorini. Can’t. Get. Enough!
Now if you’re wondering how you can replicate this exact scene, look no further than the Rocabella Santorini to give you these mountain + sea views. With the a gorgeous display of signature Grecian architecture facing the other direction!
Sun-kissed cheeks and rosy lips from none other than Renia Bledaki.
From the photographer, Sotiris Tsakanikas: Channeling the realistic yet fanciful dreamscape wandering of Sofia Copolla’s cinematic aesthetic, this 2 brides editorial shoot for my The Secret Owl Workshop in Santorini, brings an atmosphere that is airy yet fused with the ‘cool-girl’ trope. Soft lighting, hazy pastels, and dusky palettes were the initial concept as the shooting grounds -the emblematic Rocabella where many superstars have holidayed and toasted to the fiery sunset over the Caldera- shine stark white under the hot sun.
Along with power styling by Sofia Ferreira from Brancoprata who waved her magic wand over our invitation suites and non-paper goods,and matched the glass tile menus and organic textures to Santorini stative jewelry by Poniros, Julia & Evita from Santorini Glam Weddings created a novelty setting inspired by the art deco age: A stained-glass gazebo that served as our ceremony canopy, accented with glass urns and soft pampas grass, garden blooms and David Austins in peach, yellow and white tones, 1920’s office chairs in lieu of pews and an elegant reception table with gorgeous Santorini treats by Spicy Bites.
Crochelle‘s pieces carry a very distinct, evident artistry and her delicate sherbet shade dresses adorning our two brides brought a hyper-feminine, minimal visual code which perfectly matches Santorini’s elegant vibes. I wished to portray this wedding as the couple looks at life through a sun-soaked lens, immersed in a beautiful hallucination, ultra-light, with the iconic milky Aegean sunshine reflecting onto the camera and the somber undertones of the caldera popping in the distance.
Don’t these one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces from Poniros Jewellery just make you want to dance with giddiness? C’mon, be honest. This isn’t an exaggeration.
Nothing lights our fire like unique wedding dresses, and these airy creations from Crochelle are as beautiful as they come, with a delicate flow that can only mimic the Aegean wind.
Forever marveling the way this feast from Spicy Bites Catering makes its home on the table. Crusty bread on a marble pedestal from Grigoris Kouskouris, aged cheese on colored tiles, baked goods in sealed jars. Pretty + functional!
And how could we not be obsessed with these vintage chairs from Sphinx Wine Restaurant?! They’re the pieces that marry old with new in this destination concept!
