It was the sun-dappled allure of the Athenian Riviera coast that cast its spell on Irini & Dimitris to dream of getting wed where once shipping tycoons and Hollywood celebs roamed, and their elegant Four Seasons luxury wedding in Athens is a lavish take on your pastel wedding dreams. Follow along to get immersed in pastel-wedding pretty and some seriously milky sundowns over the 5-star Athens resort captured by Elias Kordelakos.
The big day dawned with endless views over the turquoise waters of the Saronic Gulf from the Four Seasons Athens suite where Irini’s preps began. The couple’s invitation suite in olive and rose gold was a fine letter-press accompanied by gentile blooms and the couple’s signature gift to their guests, an opulent monogram scented candle. The couple wished for their folded save the dates to include the entire collection of happenings on one side and the calendar on the other complimented by the invitation note in the middle. To top it we also created round customized monogrammed tassel bookmarks for each recipient. And while Irini was slipping into her Atelier Loukia gown and enjoying some bubbly on the portico her chapel was getting ready to receive the first arrivals.
Overgrown hedges of white delphiniums, tuberoses, peonies, paired to genesta, pastel blush roses, garden roses, dianthus carnations, waxflowers, gardenias, lisianthus, and wildflowers in ivory and blush were placed down the aisle of the whitewashed chapel to create a blossoming path for the outdoor wedding ceremony decorated with according arrangements. Our aim was to create a sense of Provence meadows blossoming and moving softly around the couple as the breeze blew. Irini’s Pomeranian pup dressed in a tie and blue shirt for the occasion became the cutest ring bearer.
As the rosy sundown cascaded upon the manicured lawns of Four Seasons Athens, the couple’s guests enjoyed a chic cocktail hour poolside. The Smooth Mood Project live band serenaded happy hour in jazzy tunes and while the gents enjoyed a selection of cigars at the Gents Corner, the ladies were invited to pick up from a selection of pastel-hued pashminas (a little breeze is always expected by the sea). We set the cocktail scene in Champagne Bengaline Cushion barstools from the Chameleon Gold Fanfare collection and gold-rimmed matching bar tables decked with mini arrangements (and sanitizer sets), and an all chic welcome table laced with florals and candles.
For the wedding reception, we designed a tailored foliage-canopy oak and ivory tablescape for 8, with pastel-hued pastel-rose cascading curtains tied with tassels. Each table featured a long organic runner topped with fluted candlesticks, gorge blooms, gold-rimmed sheer tableware, and silverware as well as Irini & Dimitris signature gift. We kept linens crisp yet minimal focusing a lot on ambiance with overhanging crystal chandeliers and white dendrobium stems to unruffle softness, opulence and evoke the olfactory summer freshness of the celebration. For the bride and groom’s table, our runner arrangement skirted the floor laced with the addition of florals for a standout effect.
It was certainly a most magical night. As events 2020 all had a more downsized list of guests, this allowed the couple to focus on making their destination wedding in Athens a truly spectacular one. If you have your hearts set on a pastel wedding scheme this is definitely one for your Pinterest board of inspiration!
