A Modern Elopement Overlooking the Aegean Sea

Planning and event design: Tie The Knot In Santorini

Flower creations: Betty Flowers Santorini

When you share a love of travel and exploring, a destination wedding in Santorini is the perfect choice. This couple fell in love with the white-washed architecture, pops of blues and stunning ocean views and with the help of  a savvy group of vendors, they channeled all that into a gorgeous modern celebration built for two. Designed by Tie the Knot in Santorini, along with florals by Betty Flowers Santorini, see this rooftop wedding unfold through the gorgeous images by Anna Roussos.

From the bride... My husband is from the USA and I am from Ecuador. We both lived in Europe for a while and met at work in Belgium. Eventually, he returned to San Francisco and we were long distance for about a year until I moved there to be with him. Being so far apart for over a year was tough but we made the best of it by traveling together as often as we could. We love Europe and visited many cities together but we never made it to Santorini. We chose to have our special day there because it's a place that both of us had always wanted to visit, the white washed cliff houses and blue roof churches are so pretty and the views are unforgettable! We always knew that we didn't want a big wedding. With our friends and family spread across the world, even planning a small wedding seemed daunting. Eloping was the perfect choice for us! Since we wouldn't have any guests it was very important to have nice pictures to show our family and friends. We spent a lot of time looking for photographers who have experience shooting in Santorini. Eventually, we met Anna and fell in love with her work as soon as we saw it. Hiring her was one of the first (and best) decisions we made. We wanted our elopement to be simple, modern, and minimal. Maria from Tie the Knot in Santorini did an amazing job in bringing our vision to life - the flowers, the cake, the private dinner - she went above and beyond, always with a smile. We wanted it to be very private and intimate, so we had the ceremony and dinner on the terrace of the beautiful villa we rented. Aenaon Villas is absolutely incredible - so white and minimal - as soon as we saw pictures we knew that it would be the perfect venue!
