Bam! Santorini elopement 10/5

We just got our sneak peeks!!!


VendorsSmiley tonguehotographer- Elope with TKM (based in Iowa, travel globally)HMU- Kelly Alexander of Vaya Salon (based in Chandler, Arizona)Dress/Veil- Martina LianaShapewear- Boomba inserts, Amazon padded hip underwearAlterations- Suzanne's Sewing Service (Gilbert, Arizona)Suit - Nick's Menswear (custom)Pocket Boutonniere- Etsy (luxenvelopes)Bride shoes - Rothy Pointes in Deep OceanRest is likely Amazon! Ceremony location- Skaros RockHotel -Dana Villas (Honeymoon Suite)
We got married at sunrise as Santorini is a CROWDED place and we wanted zero people around. It was PERFECT. A couple of hikers showed up while we were doing pictures after the ceremony, zero issues.
I am SO proud of myself for making it to the ceremony site in one piece without hurting myself or the dress. It was a long hike down and an even longer hike up! The legend has grown to "I hiked with a 200lb dress" 馃槀
I had my alterations seamstress turn my veil into a cape! We wrangled it into my hair for the ceremony and then used eye hooks in my shoulder straps to turn it into a cape after lunch. My seamstress was mystified but she did it!
We took pictures all over Santorini and then finished with a gorgeous sunset dinner.
After dinner we went back to the hotel room and Kelly cut my hair! I'm a pixie cut girl but I had a vision of soft curls so I grew my hair out for 6 months. It drove me insane! Then I made Chris change (because he can wear his suit again) and got in the pool in our room for some final steamy pictures.
Overall HMU started at 5am and we finished pictures in our room at 11pm. It was a DAY. I cannot wait for the rest of our pictures!!!

    Wow. quite an adventurous wedding day. Congratulations.

    I thought it was quite the task to get on the roof there but you also hiked all over the place for those pictures.

    I was browsing around and saw the Santorini wedding sites. Then I noticed this post again. That looks like a nice way to do a wedding. Was it easy planning with them?
