The way Maria and Sotiris met reminds us something of a movie! Their wedding was pure white and dreamt and we are super exited that we share it with you today. And if you feel jealous about Maria’s Oscar de la Renta wedding dress… you should be! Here at WeddingTales we voted it as one of the most impressive wedding dresses we have ever seen.
“It was one of those mornings that you know that nothing good will happen. It was raining cats and dogs and I was filled with mud from a passing by car! Sotiris stopped with his car and asked me for an address because he was lost- a few days later we happened to meet again in a common group of friends. I guess we were meant to be. What I loved about him was his calm aura and his deep voice that reminds me of a radio producer. He probably fell in love with me because I am the right opposite of him and so we complete each other”.
The wedding proposal was amazing… “It happened in Tokyo. He tied a thread to my finger and he let the ring “travel” to my finger from the other end of the thread!”. Girls… melt away! “The truth is that on my wedding day nothing could make me feel nervous since I had the best professionals by my side. On the one side the Elite Events Athens girls that took care of every small or bigger detail, and on the other hand the “magic hands” of Manos Vynichakis who took care of my makeup and hair!”.
Maria and Sotiri’s wedding was a total white vintage wedding since the couple wanted their wedding to have the essence of on other era, that of France of 18th century that they both love, as Maria told us. “I think that our wedding was exactly as we dreamed about it. He had each other and all the people that love us. For us the most touching moment was the moment after the wedding was over when we sat side by side looking at the sea and enjoying that “just us two” feeling.”.
Elite Events Athens girls took care all the details of Maria and Sotiri’s wedding and everything was magical. “What I loved about working with Elite Events Athens girls is the fact that I felt absolutely sure and no stress at all during the wedding preparations and the wedding day as well. I enjoyed the moment as it deserved it since the girls had taken care of everything. Of course it was so important for me that I didn’t have to spent my valuable free time, since they were looking for everything I had dreamed of. From the wedding crowns to the venue and the videographer. Most importantly they stood by me like real friends, something that resulted in a true and deep friendship. I would definitely suggest Elite Events Athens girls to future brides to be because they respect the choices of their client and are very honest, fact that is very important if you don’t want to end up with a different result that the one you have been promised on your wedding day!”.
Maria’s advice to all future brides is this one:
Enjoy the moment because lots of brides forget about it and plan your wedding according to what you dream for that day. The most important thing as the years past, is to feel that your wedding is the way your dreamed about and not the way others would like it!
