Hello to our wonderful couples! Today I am sharing with you a wonderful day in photos that are not wedding photos. You will surely agree with me they are truly inspiring and remind us of the real meaning of marriage and bringing families together. Destination Weddings are so much fun. Actually they are more than fun; they are full of excitement, cheerfulness and joy. The focus is mostly on the wedding day itself but Destination Weddings have other events planned around the wedding day. Either to thank guests for making the effort to travel miles away from home, introduce family and friends who have never met before or simply because the couple want to spoil their guests with parties, candlelit dinners or sailing to explore the place they are getting married. We want to share with you the wonderful day we planned for Olivia and Justin’s family and friends as it was one of the best guest experiences we’ve had the pleasure of putting together.  It’s usually referred to as ‘The Rehearsal Dinner’ but this was more than just a dinner. It was a day of pure fun!  What was so lovely about planning this 'Welcoming Wedding Guests event' was how specific the couple were about the experience they wanted their guests to have.  For example… their love for Greek Food and Greek Music. So we chose to start with a morning cruise around the volcanic isles of Santorini which also included Greek Meze and Syrtaki on board.
