This whimsical vow renewal in Greece has completely stolen our hearts! Golden Apple Weddings took the hottest wedding trends of 2019 and created a jaw-dropping hanging cloud of dyed baby’s breath in papaya and coral hues. Oh and if you like that, then you will love the delicate fairy lights and the cozy reception nestled on the beach for two. Don’t say we didn’t warn you because this too-pretty-for-words vow renewal has the most picture perfect details and we can’t help but ooh and ahh over every photo from Sotiris Tsakanikas.
From the planner, Golden Apple Weddings: Saying a destination “I do, again” isn’t just an excuse to travel abroad and throw a party, although in years of planning we have found this to be an excellent idea. Some couples like our dear Stefan & Sylwia wish to renew their vows to create a ceremony honoring who they are at this stage of their lives, and let’s not forget that not all couples have had the opportunity to host the wedding of their dreams. The celebration of their anniversary was just the right time for these two amazing souls, and we couldn’t be happier to design an uber-romantic fete that would make their hearts skip a beat.
It had to be a quiet, sandy beach, there had to be tons of pretty accents, peach, papaya, coral and blush were the dominant hues. Taking the time to craft a truly personal ceremony would make the day more memorable and intentional, because Stefan & Sylwia wanted the renewal ceremony to be special and reflect the depth of their relationship as it is now, after being together for 10 years. We chose Rhodes for its calm and languid vibes, but also for its natural beauty. The limestone formations create small puddles of seawater which we turned into romantic pools filled with votive candles, which turned them into something truly magical as the evening fell.
The private dinner scape set for two was made up of a pergola, festooned with fairy lights, billowing curtains and a cloud of baby breath blooms to symbolize the duo’s eternal cloud nine, while the same pattern was followed in the table garland and Sylwia’s bouquet of david austin roses and dyed baby breath. We employed the blush collection of the tableware, trimmed with peach scented candlesticks and white orchids. The couple’s cakes by Trizeli Confections were a real pair of pink champagne infused sponge desserts with rum flavored custard, white chocolate shavings, and Bavarian cream topped with sugar orchids. The couple’s seating had to be comfy and pretty as their private dinner so we opted for two velvet rounded elowen chairs in blossom.
The two lovebirds enjoyed an afternoon shoot with their photographer Sotiris Tsakanikas whom we owe all these beautiful images to. It was an incredibly beautiful and sweet project for us, creating something so private and personal, and we enjoyed every single bit making Stefan and Sylwia’s dream come true.
I mean honestly, how will we ever recover from this gorgeous and whimsical vow renewal in Greece? I don’t think we ever will but this costal inspiration with bright peonies just might help!
