Yikan + Ting 's Romantic Wedding in Santorini

 

Aspro Wedding in Greek Island

Aspro which means white in Greek language is the wedding color theme specifically chosen by our Chinese couple Yikan and Ting. The groom Yikan from Shanghai and the bride Ting from Luoyang, Henan, both now working and residing in Shanghai. Interestingly, they didn’t meet in China, instead fate brought them together while they are pursuing studies in USA. This Spring they decided to tie the knot, Ting wanted their wedding to be a little more than the traditional Chinese wedding.

The couple was planning their vacation to Europe and Greece is right on the top of their itinerary. They stumbled upon a blog about elopement wedding in European destinations and wedding in Santorini was featured. The very thought of holding a romantic wedding with the spectacular geographic setting of Santorini, sparkles in the Aegean sea and basking under the Mediterranean sun proved too much to resist. The destination was quickly decided and the couple came to us to be their wedding planner. Keeping open minded and active participation by the couple certainly helps with the planning process. Santorini is spoiled for wedding venue choices, each has it’s own merits and appeal factors. With a good understanding of the couple expectation and our experience on the island, a few fantastic venues were handpicked for the couple to choose. After the venue was decided, more planning work and coordinating follows and finally the stage is set to welcome the couple on the island.

The weather on the actual wedding day was perfect, light was very good and we couldn’t ask for anything better than that. The ceremony area was breathtaking; perched on the caldera cliff-side with the magnificent view of the volcano, the Aegean sea and Fira, the capital of Santorini. Traditional live music plays, couples marches in, it seems time stood still for all to feel the love of the couple and magic of this Greek island wedding.

As it is a custom for Asians to do pre-wedding photo shoot, we encouraged the couple to do a some portraits shot after the ceremony. Our experience photographer kindly obliged and took them to the village of Pyrgos, located on the highest ground with panoramic view of whole of Santorini. The wedding and photoshoot session ended in a high note with all of us watching the sun sets below the horizon on the pinnacle of Kasteli castle ruins.

This Autumn, this wedding, this island will always hold a special place in our hearts. We wish them a blissful marriage and all the bests!
