Cretan Vineyard Wedding in Chania
Destination weddings are so romantic. You travel to a distant land to marry your betrothed. The natural beauty of the surroundings truly enhance the photos and help to evoke the feeling of love. Our Greek-American couple, Amrein and Savvas, got marred at Dourakis Winery which is in Crete just outside of Chania. They exchanged their vows among the lush green gardens and the wine cellar. Even though they had guests from all over the world, it was still a very intimate setting. Amrein's ensemble truly fit the setting. She looked like a Greek goddess. Her gown was sleeveless and a draped design. Her hair was pulled back off of her face. She did not wear lots of jewelry either. Her bouquet was simply a bunch of flowers. Savvas wore a black suit and bow tie. His boutonniere had the same floral arrangement as her bouquet. After the ceremony, they were able to get some amazing shots using the green gardens and stone buildings as back drops. They also held the reception at the same venue as they danced the night away. Amrein and Savvas travelled to Crete for their destination wedding. The winery provided a wonderful setting for this intimate affair. Even if you can not travel to a far away land for your nuptials, you can also do the same thing closer to your home. Is there a place that you really love? This might another option if you want to have a destination wedding on a budget.
