You can’t get married in Santorini without an automatic dose of pure magic! But Cameron + Kellie took it one step further with one of the most romantic dinner settings we’ve ever seen thanks to a massive amount of fairy lights! Set up at the dreamy Venetsanos Winery, these two called on Julia & Evita to bring the vision to life. Here’s the inspiration from Kellie:
Our inspiration came from the white buildings of Oia, Santorini. We also wanted to have a magical setting underneath fairy tale lights that glistened as they reflected off the mirrors on our reception table. Forty-five of our closest friends and family traveled so far to celebrate with us on this special day. We wanted to make our wedding about everyone and not just the bride and groom. We planned a week of events and celebrations and enjoyed all the moments with our favorite people. This was truly the best week of our lives!
Let’s have a look at the photos from White On Black!
Ceremony with a View
C + K wanted tropical florals for the day and RedBox Days created gorgeous pieces, from the bouquet to the backdrop to the reception.
How gorgeous is the skirt on her Justin Alexander gown?!

Honestly, they are goals.
All the Wedding Fairy Lights
As if it wasn’t already stunning enough, Julia & Evita created a dinner dream with one long table under the most brilliant canopy of string lights!
Major props to Events in Santorini for the breathtaking lighting!
Is this not the MOST romantic setting?
During the reception, our guitarist played a song called "Hallelujah" that was my grandmother's favorite song. She passed away this past year and when he played this song unknowingly, my family and I cried tears of joy knowing that she was there to celebrate this special day. It was truly a moment we will never forget. Our best friend Tim also gave a surprise speech at the dinner table. It's moments like these that create memories for a lifetime!
Find an incredible wedding planner like we did that understands your vision and aesthetic style. Plan far enough in advance and splurge on a great photographer. Those were the two best choices we made :)
Catch us dreaming about this day for a LONG time. Congrats to the lovely couple on your beautiful day!
