Elysa breaking her knee & having pneumonia months before her wedding day didn’t stop her and the love of her life, Michael, from walking down the aisle.
With a heart-felt passion for both the love birds to tie the knot, surrounded by their huge Greek families and traditions, Elysa and Michael could not of asked for a more perfect day.
“It was intimate and felt like there was no one else in the world at that moment”, remarks Elysa, where the moment she got proposed to on her favourite beach, Camp Cove, carries the memory of the love birds first shared ‘I love you’.
With Elysa and Michael’s traditional Greek culture at the very core of their Church ceremony, such as the gracious walk of Isaiah wearing Greek Crowns, symbolising their first steps as husband and wife, was certainly a perfect addition that the bride and groom would be unlikely to forget.
The splash of modern twists that represented the couple including the navy & gold pops of colour, from the flower arrangement to the mix of centre pieces, added a perfect touch to the Spring Mediterranean vibe.
Following the tradition, Michael’s passion for Greek music, learning to play the Bouzouki long before the newlyweds met, awakened a surprise performance at The Four Seasons Hotel reception venue, special and unique touch, memorable to his bride and guests.
Congratulations to Elysa & Michael!
