It’s no wonder why Christos and Barbara chose to get married in the small Greek village of Portaria. Esther & Gabe captured all of the breathtaking views, heartwarming moments, and crafty diy decorations of this beautiful Mediterranean wedding.
Nestled in the mountains with sweeping views of the Aegean Sea, Portaria, a small Greek village in Magnesia was the clear choice for the wedding location. The couple who met in Greece 9 years ago, had visited the charming village in Magnesia many times over the years and knew long before the engagement that it would later become “the place.” They chose the luxurious Valeni Boutique Hotel as the venue.
Aside from the flowers, cake, and food, Barbara and her bridal party prepared all of the decorations. Our bride, who wore a stunning Pronovias dress for the occasion says, “So, my advice is: do as much as possible with your friends for wedding preparations, search on internet for ideas, find what you like exactly, give your touch, enjoy the time together… these are the best moments that will be engraved in each and every heart forever.”
From the groom, Christos: I was getting really anxious throughout the day; I didn’t want anything to go wrong. The weather forecast was advising rain, people were stressing out… but the moment I saw her with her big smile, all my anxiety disappeared… This day will be forever in my heart. It was simply unforgettable.
