Kind words

Where to begin with Island Events and its owners Debbie and Flora? It’s hard to encapsulate how perfect of a wedding experience Debbie and Flora provided for us from the beginning until the end. First, after speaking with several wedding planners abroad, it was clear that Debbie and Flora could provide the best communication and guidance for our wedding. Both ladies are native English speakers, and each has a strong sense of respect for the wishes of their clients. They work diligently to deliver updates and respond to any requests or questions with speed. Second, Island Events provides an extremely organized approach to their occasions. From budgets to checklists and scheduled Skype calls, Debbie and Flora make sure that every couple has an accurate vision of their wedding day. Lastly, when you finally arrive in Naxos, Debbie and Flora welcome you like family. It’s clear that the vendors they select for you are not only the best on the island, but that they have mutual respect for Island Events as well. In short, Debbie and Flora are known on the island, and it’s clear that people respect them. If ever an issue were to arise, you would never know, because they always remained very calm, cool, and collected. If you’re considering a wedding in Naxos, we would strongly encourage you to use Island Events. Debbie and Flora exercise the utmost professionalism in their approach to wedding planning, while maintaining a personal touch that’s needed in such an important life moment. We love them, and cannot say enough great things about our experience. Yamas to Flora & Debbie! ☺ Thank you for a beautiful and very memorable day!

The couple

Coming all the way from Texas to realize their dream of a pinterest perfect Greek Wedding - with blue and white church and waves lapping.

Where

On a small beach tucked into the amazing rock formations on the isthmus in front of Agia Anna village. A perfectly protected and private little piece of perfect for the bride to meet her groom.

Styling

Simple, elegant, pink and white, peonies and a bit of ivy in memory - our artist bride painted the seating cards herself, designed the welcome bags and the wedding celebration timelines - so many stylish details to make her guests feel so welcome and so appreciated.  A refreshment table at the ceremony with champagne and individually chosen appetizers with live music made lingering at sunset all themore enjoyable.  With a white dress code for the guests the group photos on the rocks with the village behind were sensational..

Sourcing & planning

We helped the bride combine Greek traditions with her amazing styling ideas. Her guests threw olive leaves after the Ceremony that were tied up in little burlap sacks - live music was played by traditional Greek musicians - with some of the couples favorites thrown in! 

Fun & memories

After a short walk to the ideal beach front restaurant -  their friends met them with sparklers that reflected in the waves. Their table was set under a pergola with swaying gauze curtains and lights over head - a traditional Greek feast was served right to their table and individual little cakes decorated their dessert table -  so much to remember! The DJ at dinner played a personalized playlist that had everyone singing and dancing. The smiles continued until late at  Island Bar just a stroll down the beach.
