James and I met while on a volunteering trip in Greece four years ago, so it just made sense that we would get married there. Especially since he has family in Greece and his parents own a house on the island of Aegina: a perfect setting for the reception. We went for a low-key setting, and the whole day and evening exceeded my expectations. I'm not surprised though: every time I go to Greece, I am overwhelmed by the beauty of the landscapes. This, paired with most of our friends and family, coming from literally all over the world, made for a magical day that I will remember forever. Here are a few pictures of my big day, all by Dimitris Vlaikos.
Wedding gown: BHLDN, Sash BHLDN (sold out), Headband Ivory and Lace Bridal, Veil Jackson Bridal Veils, shoes: Michael Kors (sold out in silver) and Dolce Vita. Bridesmaids dresses: mismatched, their own. If you have any questions about any of the bridal decor or outfits, don't hesitate to contact me.
BHLDN (Anthropologie's bridal store) is hands down my favorite bridal boutique. I was lucky enough to be able to try on some of their dresses at the trunk show they hosted in Nashville in February, since they don't have a whole lot of locations. Don't be afraid to order online though: they have great customer service and enough reviews to figure out your size. Anyways, you will probably end up altering your dress, whether you buy it in store or online (though I didn't even have to have mine altered!). Their prices are reasonable and I love the style of their dresses (I'm not so much into big ballgowns and poofy dresses).
