Vibrant intimate wedding by a swimming pool

The wedding of Vasilisa and Vlad took place the next day after the Orthodox Easter. When planning your wedding in Greece, keep in mind that there are the National Easter holidays. It takes almost a week, and most Greeks travel abroad or chose to spend time with their families rather then work.  Despite on globalization the Greeks still stick to their traditions. Sometimes it can be annoying but from the other hand all these details make Greece so special. That’s why we love the country.

Vasilisa and Vlad have chosen the Easter holidays on purpose. They visited Crete before and wanted to witness the Easter celebrations in here. We decided to meet the couple’s goal. When we started the wedding planning, we had some months ahead. 3-4 months are enough to plan an intimate wedding up to 20 guests.

Vasilisa’s inspiration was the DOLCE&GABANA advertisement campaign. “You may see the Italian family at the D&G shots,- Vasilisa said. – We would like our ceremony take place at the beautiful patio,  lost somewhere in the labyrinth  of the Old Town of Rethymno. We want a colorful set up, some bright flowers. After ceremony we would like to walk down the Rethymno streets and to have an after-wedding photo session.  I want our guests accompany us. We would be happy to make pictures together.”

Aaaaand… I am happy to share with you “the best of” from a day X of Vasilisa and Vlad. The famous wedding photographer Hanna Monika did amazing shots!

        

   

    

For this intimate wedding we ordered an arty cake at the pastry shop Cream Society.

Wedding bouquet and the flower compositions were created by a talented Cretan florist Maria Zembeli.

Note the best time for using peonies in the wedding decoration in Crete is from April till July.

One of the touching moments at each wedding is when a bride appears.

The couple exchanged vows and then the party has started. Three generations together!

 

 

 

 

Then the couple had a walk  down the Rethymno Old Town streets. The Cretans adore weddings and always cheer the couples with warm wishes and words. Don’t hesitate to have a wedding photo session at the public places. You will love it.

  

Vasilisa and Vlad, the Crete Within Weddings wishes you many happy years together! Enjoy your family journey!

Hope to meet you next year in Crete again!

  • When it was the last time you have seen the sunrise? 🌅 Most of the wedding ceremonies take place on sunset. Greeting the sun yesterday at the eastern cost of Crete where the sun rises up from the sea, I was thinking that the moment of sunrise was way more impressive. Meanwhile the wedding ceremony on sunrise is absolutely unsocial act 🙂 we like party at night. Yet, would you go for the wedding ceremony on sunrise? 😋#sunrise #crete #sunrisewedding #cretewithinweddings_ideas #weddingincrete #weddingcrete #destinationweddinggreece
  • Pre-wedding photo shot at the winery is not a common place. Couples come to Crete to have fun by the sea 🌊🌊🌊 It was a such a heat on the wedding day of Olesia and Dmitry, that I proposed them an idea to escape and to take some rest underground 😉🍷🍇. The winery cellar seemed to be a good idea. Olesia and Dmitry and a photographer  enjoyed it so much, that we were about to be seriously late to the civil ceremony 🤭🤭🤭 📸 by Egor Matasov. 🍇Dourakis winery. There are picturesque wineries all over the Crete.

  • There are big wedding venues in Crete, there re villas and estates. The rental fees starts from 800 euro. If you are going to have a small intimate wedding here, I would advice you how to save money and to spend it for something else. There are many hidden spots in Crete. It can be your perfect venue. 📲 +306980871621 🤗🤗🤗 Again, we just highlighted the real beauty of the venue where the ceremony took place 🌼🌼🌼 #crete #weddingincrete #weddingcrete #destinationweddinggreece #weddingplannergreece #weddingtips #weddingvenuesgreece #weddingvenuecrete #weddingdecor #intimatewedding #islandwedding #visitgreece #couplegoals #weddingwire #bridetobe #wedding2020 #weddingwire #rustic #rusticwedding #engaged
  • Love this intimate wedding setup, created for another beautiful couple Olga and Denis. A modest orthodox chapel at the Argiroupoli village was built at the place of ancient Temple of Artemis 🏛 Two pillars - thousands years old 🤔- in the courtyard of the church sign of the breathtaking mix of times and civilizations here in Crete 🕰 Do you want your wedding ceremony take place at the historical place? 📲+306980871621 or fill the contact form at our site www.cretewithinweddings.com #weddingcrete #weddingincrete #ancientgreece #weddingplannergreece #destinationweddingplannercrete #weddingsetup #weddingdecor #orthodoxwedding #crete #argiroupoli #lappa #intimatewedding #greekislandwedding #shesaidyes #yesido #destinationweddinggreece #experience #visitgreece #welovecrete #destinationweddinggreece #cretewithinweddings #weddingvenuegreece #крит #критвнутри #свадьбанакрите #свадьбакрит #православнаяцеремониявенчания #свадьбавгреции
  • The most popular combination for the wedding decoration in Crete is olive branches and anything white - flowers, ribbons, etc 🌿 Hmmm.. I would call this wedding decor concept “defiant and provocative” though 😋😋😋 Do you love colors as Crete Within does?😍 PS that was expensive 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ but outstanding 🌟🌟🌟 #colorful #colorfulwedding #crete #weddingincrete #cretewedding #destinationweddinggreece #destinationweddingcrete #creteweddingplanner #cretewithinwedding #weddingdecor #olivetree #rainbow #greekgateaway #yesido #bridetobe #bridalflowers #engaged #couplegoals #weddinggreece #shesaidyes #weddinginspiration #крит #свадьбанакрите
  • Personally me, I like colors. Pictures from Crete could be much brighter but  there s a wedding photography trend “to wash away” colors 😉😉😉 Pink-White-Yellow flower combination looks good 💐 Special thanks to florist @kentiaflcreations !

  • This shot of me made by 💓 @irini_koronaki_photography represents a moment  I am on mission to get the best prices from vendors for my clients 😁😁😁 Negotiations... it’s a huge part of wedding planner’s job. From one side we should protect the couple’s interest, from the other - to respect the vendor’s terms.☝️☝️☝️ While planning your destination wedding, it makes sense to have someone on-site.

  • Every time we start to discuss a wedding cake 🍰, I always tell to a couple: in Crete there are 3 categories of the pastry-shops: 1 can to implement any “expensive” design - golden leaves, “marble” technic, etc; 2 type provides the “fashion” tasty cakes; 3 type creates cakes, which have simple design but are EXTREMELY tasty!  This one made by @the_cream_society belongs to the third category 😍 #weddingincrete #weddingcake #destinationweddingcrete #greeceweddingplanner #cretewithinweddings #cretewithinweddings_consult #greekgateaway #bridetobe #shesaidyes #intimatewedding #rethymno #crete #bridetobe2020 #weddingphotographercrete #destinationweddingplanner #engaged #свадьбанакрите #крит #критвнутри #свадебныйторт #свадьбанаморегреция #невеста #вкусно #lessismore #peonies #пионы
  • Summer heat is there ☀️ I put AC on +16C otherwise my computer will be overheated. Me as well😆But still my thoughts are at the secret beach at the South cost ⛱ really guys, you have to have a strong will to work hard while everybody around is chilling at the beach bars 🤨 #dailylife #work #cretewithin_life #crete #engaged #weddingincrete #cretewedding #beachwedding #cretanbeaches #creteweddingplanner #destinationweddinggreece #islandwedding #intimatewedding #weddingvenue #couplegoals #visitgreece #weddingingreece #свадьбакрит #свадьбанаморе #критвнутри #невеста #bridetobe
  • A real challenge  for a wedding planner is to provide smart solutions for a wedding with a limited budget. If you are able to do, then you can do anything 🌟 Also I believe the biggest advantage of having marriage on the shiny island of Crete is that the picturesque sceneries are already there 🌸 No need to spend a fortune to decorate a place of ceremony/reception. This time we found amazing patio at the heart of the Old Town 😍 We just underlined its beauty  @rimondiboutiquehotels #cretewithinweddings_venue #weddingincrete photo by @hannamonika florals by @manfler.florist #cretewedding #destinationwedding #weddingplanneringreece #engaged #destinationweddingplanner #intimatewedding #weddingvenuecrete #exoticwedding #weddingdecor #lessismore #bridetobe #wedding2020 #islandwedding #diywedding #elopementwedding #yesido #couplegoals #reddish #крит #свадьбанакрите #критвнутри_свадьба #помолвка #свадьбанаморегреция
