On first impressions Valina & Chad were an exceptional couple. They were the type of couple that could brighten up anyone’s day. Both with smiles so delightful and hearts so warm. Perfectly matched in enthusiasm for life and enthusiasm for love. When you get two amazingly happy and positive individuals bound together by love, it’s no surprise they were going to amaze us with one of the most beautiful Wedding Days of the summer.

The Couple arrived and graced Santorini with joy, happy and excitement. Words really couldn’t describe how excited the Valina & Chad were. They didn’t fly solo, they brought a collection of their best friends and closest family members to join their biggest celebration of love!

Valina and Chad were both lucky enough to have an amazing section of Bridesmaids and Best Men. The energy was doubling with this amount of love and excitement in one place. Valina and Chad knew how to host and it was certain that it was going to be a day that no one was going to forget.

Our blushing Bride’s day started with the company of her beautiful Bridesmaids in their matching silk robes. They had a playful, yet energetic photo shoot by the Diamond Rock’s Villa Pool and enjoyed the magnificent views of the Caldera. They were any Brides greatest team and support for her special day.

Meanwhile the men showcased their own cool, stylish and playful moves. They also had the amazing Caldera backdrop for their photos and they even wore matching Greek God socks for good measure! It’s difficult to say which team was having more fun, the males or females? As the photos show they were both equally ecstatic!

Valina shared magical moments in the preparation stages with her closest family. She truly enjoyed the stages of her preparations and was as cool as ice. Valina was so relaxed, easy going and delightfully friendly. She made everyone around her feel at ease and it was a joy to be part of those moments with her.

The beautiful Bride opted for a floor length, lace and tailored dress. It was clear the dress was perfect for Valina and complimented her feminine frame. Her choice of heels were excellent and we loved how she teamed her them with elegantly simple jewelry to match. It was nice to see Valina had her own style and added a lovely, delicate head piece to showcase this.

 

Chad kept it classic and cool. He knew exactly how to dress well and proved this in his blue and white suit. In toll with the theme of Santorini and in touch with the Greek flag. Nothing would finish the suit off better than his brown, leather brogues and those Greek God socks! Let’s not forget those! Together they both looked fantastic and a perfect match.

Our blissful tied the knot in a Ceremony at the Diamond Rock Venue and can we blame them?…Of course not! With views so sensational it was an even more magical moment to say ‘Yes!’ whilst the surrounded by views that will never leave their minds, as well as each other’s happy face.

They both have a great taste in decorations and let us work our magically so finely. The decoration style was simple, elegant and beautifully understated. The contrast of the greenery and white floral details incorporated into the Gazebo curtains, Valinas and bouquet and table decorations was stunning. Not to forget the beautifully lit candles, adding the extra element of class and sophistication to the occasion. We also love nothing more than glistening candles at a Wedding Reception!

The Reception party flowed so smoothly and within the Diamond Rock Venue. Our Venue provides the perfect location for dancing and music till the early hours of the morning. A place where you can truly live for the moment and enjoy the superb atmosphere the Venue holds. The Newlyweds were no strangers to the dance floor and their guests also loved the experience.

Valina and Chad set a great example of what Wedding Day Happiness can be and how many amazing memories can be held within one majestic place.
