Stephanie & John
The sweetest scientist couple decide to fly 18 of their closest friends and family to Greece for an intimate wedding in the Cycladic island of Paros

They met while in graduate school over seven years ago, and became very good friends. A few years later they decided to spend the rest of their lives with their best friend.

Stephanie and John, one of the kindest couples we ever had the pleasure to work with, started planning a large wedding in Boston, where they live. However midway through the planning process the couple realized a large wedding was not what they had envisioned for the celebration of their wedding. There and then, they decided to cancel their bookings in Boston, with all the implications this decision carried, and instead fly over their closed 18 friends and family to Greece for a much more intimate wedding.

They wanted to have a Greek Orthodox ceremony so we proposed the most idilic chapel of Agios Fokas in Paros which is set in a secluded cove right next to the water. For their reception we thought a private villa would be the most intimate location for a small group. Villa Aethra located on a hill with stunning views of the water and surrounding islands was the perfect setting for their reception.

We set-up a long table for dinner, as we wanted the reception to feel like a long dinner at home. We used earthy tones in our florals, paired these with blue stationary, representing the colors of Aegean. Lots candle light created a romantic ambience where the newlyweds celebrate their union amongst their dearest friends and family.
