Hadiel and Marcel are two people with personalities that capture your heart in an instant. Warm and kind, meeting them and having been trusted to tell the story of one of their life’s greatest milestones is certainly one of the perks of what I chose to do professionally all these years and I feel grateful for. Living in Germany, but being genuine lovers of Greece, they decided that a destination celebration in the riviera of Greece’s capital would be the perfect way to start their journey as a married couple.
The location selected was the 5-star seafront Grand Resort Lagonissi wedding venue, and I must admit that based on my experience as an Athens wedding photographer, this is one of the best Athens wedding venues. Hadiel’s account of the couple’s first day and how they decided to organize their chic Mediterranean wedding at Grand Resort Lagonissi is so sweet and emotional, that I felt the need to quote it here:
“On a mild summer day, we met and forgot the whole world at first sight.
Our first date kept on going for more than 10 hours, not wanting to go home. Two weeks later we were inseparable. Marcel’s love of Mediterranean culture and especially Greece felt so contagious, that I had no other chance than falling in love with the Greek taverns, the charming streets, and the smell of the Greek sun as well. Two years later, Marcel decided to ask for my hand in Mykonos. He prepared a private beach dinner and surprised me with a breathtaking view, wonderful food, a little bit of glam with the most important question of our lives: Would you be my wife?”
The day started with the couple’s preparations at the resort and Hadiel was stunning in her Martina Liana dress. Even though the weather forecast expected rain and it was cloudy and windy, this did not affect Hadiel and Marcel’s mood at all, who were the epitome of happiness and excitement as they were getting ready to marry their soulmates. Their Grand Resort Lagonissi wedding ceremony and reception took place at the Captain’s House and was planned to perfection by Rock Paper Scissors Events with stunning florals by Studio 7.
