Alex & Tracy Greece Honeymoon with Santorini Sunset Wedding

Couple: Alex & Tracy
Travel Period: Oct 2014
Program: 8 Days 7 Nights Aegean Splendor I with Symbolic Wedding Ceremony

Impromptu Wedding?

Greece was the last leg of Alex & Tracy’s grand tour of Europe after Netherlands, Belgium and Paris. Alex came to us in May 2014 hoping to find an experienced planner to take some load off his shoulder with the planning and organizing of this grand trip. He toyed with the sweet idea of giving his fiancee Tracy a “surprise” by having a wedding in Santorini. Obviously this was never meant to be an impromptu wedding event. Nevertheless this little secret operation went on and when it is time to break the news to Tracy back home, we could imagine the bride-to-be’s excitement filled with tears.

During the travel planning discussion with the couple, it was imperative to be mindful of the pace of their travel activities and the star of the show, the Santorini wedding. This challenging trick of finding the right balance was left with our experienced wedding and travel planner, Joycelyn. The fact that the couple were well traveled and kept everything with an open mind definitely makes this a fantastic collaboration. In one particular instance, we knew beside Santorini they wish to visit one more Greek island. They are over hundreds of Greek islands with each having has its own unique appeals, who could blame Alex and Tracy for flirting with the idea of island hopping. October sees most island winding down and after making sure our top priority (the wedding) is not jeopardize, Joycelyn obligingly arranged a day visit to the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos.

Prior to the couple arrival in Greece, the wedding program was meticulously mapped out with all the ceremony essentials and customized requests pre-arranged. After months of painstaking planning and discussion, the day that all of us have been anticipating has finally arrived. We welcomed the couple on the island of Santorini (also known as Thira) and gave them some moments to settle down. A walk-through of the ceremonial procession were conscientiously conducted followed by an orientation around the ceremony venue. The chosen venue was perched on the high vantage point along the caldera rim along the western side of this volcanic island.

The Wedding

On the day of the ceremony, the couple could not miss the opportunity for an outdoor shoot with postcard worthy scenery such as ravishing blue-domed chapels, iconic bell towers and stacks of whitewashed Cycladic style houses built on what seemed like precarious rocks formation. The long-awaited ceremony commences an hour before the ever gorgeous sunset of the Aegean sea, accompanied with joyous live traditional Greek music by our talented violinist. Every wedding is unique and special; not only it meant so much to the couple but also for Joycelyn who were there to witness the celebration of love between Alex and Tracy. The wedding ended on a high note with a romantic private dinner but before that, let us cherish this special moment and bring back fond memories with the famous sunset of Santorini gradually retreating under the horizon.
