Chelsea and Jayse had their gorgeous Santorini Greece wedding at the lovely Rocabella hotel. Their ceremony overlooked a stunning caldera on the northeast coast, with high winds, calming waves, and a golden sunset. The day began as they were getting ready at their hotel rooms at Bellonias. Chelsea wore a dress by Pallas, embellished with beads and floral applique along with a sheer tulle train. She also personalized her dress by adding shoulder tulle wings. Her bouquet included pink (her favorite color) and peach (his favorite color). Her bridesmaids wore blush dresses which included sheer tulle panels so they customize their own neckline. Jayse wore a black tux by Indochino, and his groomsmen wore dark charcoal suits.
Their ceremony overlooked the coast and caldera of the venue. Their arbor was a round arch designed with greenery and roses. The couple supplied each guest with rose petals to toss as they came down the aisle as husband and wife in celebration. To capture the spirit of Santorini, they also had a donkey for their after ceremony portrait session. The donkey wore a floral collar and crown. While Chelsea wore her tulle wings for all the portraits, she traded them in for a traditional cathedral length veil during the ceremony.
For their reception, their place settings include candles, white chargers, rose gold cutlery, and acrylic menus. The linens were light gray and the chairs were birch to give a nice contrast to the reception space. Their first dance was in twilight, and their first dance started in sunset and ended with the sun dipping past the horizon. They poured champagne over a glass tower to start the champagne toasts. During their cake cutting, they also had fireworks.
They also had a portrait session the day after the wedding where we explored the island and little towns to capture the most iconic Santorini backdrops and views.
