Jocelyn & Matin Wedding (Chios Island)

14th December 2018
Romantic wedding at Chios Island

Matin and Jocelyn both love the ocean so a beach wedding ceremony was how she imagined saying their vows. They appreciate music, so she dreamed of having stringed instruments played on the beach for enjoyment but also to enhance the romantic setting of the waves in the background.
She did not want people sitting around and being bored at the reception hall, so she wanted a really good DJ and an open bar to get the party started quickly. The couple ended up dancing the night away, and Jocelyn messed up her hair and at that point she did not care anymore.
The color palette of the wedding was mostly light blue and some peachy pink. She wanted to create a beach theme at the reception, so she had blue tablecloth and also a blue cake with seashells.
She bought baroque, ivory frames with pictures of them to decorate the tables, and she thinks it was great way to share with the guest’s their love story.
Instead of a sign- in book, there were little wooden hearts that guests could write their “wishes for the Mr. and Mrs.” and sign their names before putting it in a rustic box.
Couple’s favorite moment was dancing with each other at the beach bar right after they got married with the violinist and guitarist playing in the background and having their friends and family around them. The hanging lights made the reception hall feel so dreamy, and it was perfect for the first dance because they felt like they were under the stars.
For the decoration were chosen pink and white roses that looked really elegant on the arch and in the vases for tables. The bouquets were also white and pink roses with dark blue larkspurs dispersed around them.
The designer of the dress is Made with Love from Australia, and it’s called the Stevie Dress. The bride wanted a wedding dress that was lacey, had a V neck, and was subtly captivating which led her to saying yes to the dress.  She loved that she could dance in it easily too.
There were a sweets table for the favors. The macaroons were elegantly decorated and very tasty.
The wedding cake were a 3-tiered seashell. Each tier was a different shade of blue with the darkest being at the bottom.  There was brown sugar sprinkled on the cake to make it look like sand. The flavor was a delicious coconut lemon.
