A traditional destination wedding in a Greek Village in Peloponnese

Chryssa & Panagiotis

The variety in wedding ideas, is enormous, and we always embrace the uniqueness in each dream a couple owns. Chryssa and Panagiotis, decided that their wedding should take place in Zacharo, a village located in West Peloponnese.
That celebration was the definition of a big traditional Greek wedding, since all the people of the village were invited to that marvelous open-air joy. The ceremony took place in the orthodox church of the area, were the bride in her inspiring long laced wedding dress, accompanied by a traditional orchestra, walked to meet her husband. The entrance of the church was decorated with two floral urns, with flattery arrangements. The rustic reception welcomed everyone in the central square of the village. Tables were decorated with laced boutonnieres, handmade tablecloths, paeonies, proteas, in pomegranate and coral hues.
The frame of the decoration was all golden detailed with olive leaves, making the mood for a marvelous night party!
