In a place full of myths, thrills, and unspoiled natural beauty as Costa Navarino is, Maria & Dimitris chose to tie the knot in a simple design yet luxurious scenery, permitting the gloriousness of the spot to be their inherent decoration. Refined white touches with a hint of baby pink in floral enriched the ornamentation of the wedding, with the overall wedding theme inspired by the primeval fruit of the olive tree.
Regarding the destination, Costa Navarino in southwest Peloponnese is a seaside landscape of undeniable charm that combines cultural treasures with an exclusive sustainable eco-friendly environment. Honoring their origins the couple traveled from the USA where they permanently leave for the regional unit of Messenia to get hitched in their cherished motherland and have their wedding in Peloponnese.
Emerging from a vast territory covered in lush ancient olive trees, The Romanos Resort in Costa Navarino was the venue that hosted the big event. A day before the wedding, Maria, Dimitris, and their favorite people enjoyed an early evening outside dinner in the sounds of soothing instrumental music.
The next day, the preparations started leisurely with pleasant calm vibes dominating both bride’s and groom’s teams. Maria and her bridesmaids swathed all harmonically in their vivid pink robes following the usual beauty ritual between laughs and bursting emotions. Dimitris with his pals on the other side started the party early with some fine champagne. The teasing by his friends created a jolly atmosphere which resulted in some unique pre-wedding squad photos.
The Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony took place in a small chapel in the nearby village. The bride following the tradition arrived at the spot with the escort of musicians who played old greek nuptial songs. Maria was shining in her wedding dress with an impressive long veil. The muted tone of pink in the bridesmaids’ dresses mingled perfectly with the light blue costumes of the groom’s best men. The mild palette of colors expanded in the impeccably romantic bouquets of creamy peonies and light pink roses, Maria and her girlfriends were holding.
In terms of wedding photography and cinematography, they have booked one of the best wedding photographers in Greece. So before the wedding reception and dinner, there was a photo shoot in Costa Navarino resort, with them and their wedding photographer team.
The wedding reception and dinner were held on a terrace with a magnificent view of the olive trees grove, reaching the chilled waters of the Ionian Sea. Their 60 close friends and family gathered and anticipated for the merry couple to arrive. All together danced the night out, with professional dancers in traditional Greek costumes giving the pulse. Live Greek traditional orchestra added this special spice which turned this wedding day into a memorable feast.
The destination wedding of Maria & Dimitris was a hymn to Greek wedding traditions and an authentic Mediterranean kind of party. The thing that impressed us the most about those two was the kindness in their looks, their sweet family and friends who are some of the most genuine people we have ever met. We will remember this wedding with warmth in our hearts.
