24 Jan Intimate Dream Destination Wedding in Opatija
For this couple, destination dream wedding was a clear vision of what they’ve had in mind. Seaside venue with a garden, rustic yet elegant decorations, intimate celebration with the loved ones.
Venue of choice was a beautiful seaside Villa Ariston, in Opatija, North coast Croatia and Kvarner bay. The Villa was built in the late 1800’s, today is a boutique hotel and a gourmet restaurant.
Opatija is known as one of the most romantic towns on the Croatian coast so no wonder it has gave this couple an inspiration for their wedding day.
After months of planning and anticipation, wedding day has arrived. Although mid September it was a very warm, late summer day.
Preparations have started mid morning and by early afternoon the couple was ready to meet.
Bridal bouquet featured a rhapsody of soft and peach colors, with jute and blue sateen ribbon.
Boutonniere’s for the groom and the two best man were descent combination of gypsophilla and mini eucalyptus, wrapped in burlap and sateen ribbon.
First look was captured in the Villa’s garden, followed by a photo session in Volosko‘s harbor, a small fishing village next to Opatija.
Wedding ceremony was held by the pool in the late afternoon. Green garden, big oak tree, infinity pool and the sea right below. Decor was simple and romantic; white chairs with burlap bows, arch of love with lace curtains, vintage wooden white table with burlap and lace runner. Symbolic wedding ceremony was held by the Hungarian speaking officiant. The ceremony text was personalized by the couple and has included a special Hungarian custom in which the bride and the groom honor their parents, by giving each an artificial flower. It was a very personal and emotional wedding ceremony.
Celebration took place on the restaurant terrace.
A long dinner table was set in a separate part of the terrace with a jute and lace handmade runner, jars decorated with jute, lace and satin, filled with flowers and tealights.
Wedding cake had a custom design per couple’s preferences ; two tiers, rustic style with strawberry/champagne and mascarpone/blubbery favors.
Later on the party has moved inside the restaurant where everyone has showed of their dancing moves!
At the end of the evening, the couple came and said that despite their nervousness at the beginning of the day, as everything was flowing as imagined or so even better, they can honestly say it was their Dream Wedding day!
