“Jenny and I have known each other since 2003.
She's the kind of girl that when you meet her, you are taken
aback for a second,... she’s beautiful! So we met in our offices
in Patras as she announced her upcoming marriage to Christos.
Christos is handsome, polite, with an abundance of
humour and Italian style. He’s what we call a gentleman.”
The goal after the appointment was clear, to find a special, relaxing place with character in Patras. Admittedly, not such an easy
task! Wanting to avoid the cliché reception venues, we decided to hold the wedding party in the welcoming garden of
MIRASOL beach bar. The concept was born! The logo designed! The website created! The SAVE THE DATE sent! The
marriage was now in the making! We went for a chic palette of black and white. The designQink drops, using thick laminated
cardboard, with fonts resembling calligraphy. The main material used for decoration was glass in varying shades. Bottles in all
sorts of sizes were wrapped with natural string and placed on tables or hung from trees and pergolas. Large freestanding
coloured glass bottles were placed in the church and the entrance of MIRASOL. Pink Lisianthus/Prairie Gentians, white False
Goats Beards, and fuchsia Hydrangeas were beautifully combined and popped into bottles. The groom surprised us and arrived
on time in the small chapel of Naos Zoodohou Pigis Zirias in Panagopoula. The crowd waited beneath the shade of the trees
sampling meringues and fresh lemonade. The La fete team distributed the necessary paper fans complete with the logo of
Jenny and Christos, and of course white paper bags of rice (rice rice baby!). The candles and the decoration of the church was
simple and perfectly chic, once again proving that Anais & Athina are an awesome duo!
