Jimmy + Kana wed at Fanari Villas in Santorini with THE most incredible views. From a cliffside sunset to a larger-than-life whitewashed windmill, you could fall in love with the simplicity of it all. But add in a bit of (or a lot of) pink pampas grass plumes and some strands of twinkle lights — well, just call us smitten. Tie the Knot Santorini worked magic once more, as J + K planned their dreamy Grecian wedding from their home in California:
Our inspiration was to have a simple and elegant wedding that was about us but also about our family and friends. Both Kana and I live a simple lifestyle so that we can appreciate the details of our journey. Like our lifestyle, we wanted the wedding to be very simple but to have many details that can be appreciated. We put our trust into Maria and her team to pull off an event that was memorable, not only for both of us but for all of our friends and families who attended. We are so grateful for that day and for the fun and festive experience of Santorini.
The photos from White on Black Studio give a peek into the dream that unfolded! Let’s have a look:

Reception at Sunset
There were so many memorable moments during that day that triggered many different emotions! Between Kana and I, practicing our first dance as we were getting ready was fun but also a reality check that it was better to have fun dancing together than try and memorize our steps! Another moment that amazed us was how, within hours, our wedding planners brought our wedding venue dreams to reality.
After you researched and select your wedding planner, have confidence in them to create what they do best! They have done many weddings and events and they are the professionals! Kana and I truly had confidence and high expectations of Tie the Knot in Santorini and they created something that was memorable and awe-inspiring to us and to all our guests (even to the tourist waiting to see the sunset).
Is this not the most romantic dinner scene you’ve ever seen?
She’s a vision!
