A Magical Mykonos WeddingWords by Kinsley Brown

There’s a first time for everything. For example, the first time Ingrid went on a blind date was also the first time she met her future husband. It was also love at first sight. “There he was, the guy with the most beautiful smile I have ever seen,” reflects Ingrid. “That night we talked about anything and everything. We both love to travel, so we shared stories about our trips. I recommended he travel to Greece as it is the most stunning place I have been.” Fast forward two years and Toni and Ingrid were on their way to Mykonos to say, “I do.”
The couple treated 65 guests to an event packed with personalized details and interactive activities. “[Before the] ceremony there was a flower bar where guests had the chance to pick their preferred flowers and wear wreaths, boutonnieres and corsages prepared on the spot,” says the bride. “Also, we put together a three-step ‘toss confetti bar’ outside the church where guests could prepare their cones according to their preferences (confetti, lavender or rose petals).”
This touch was ultimately the bride’s favorite memory of the day – walking up the aisle to a beautiful, scented flower toss. The reception was a reflection of the couple’s style with “boho-inspired, vintage accents.” Instrumental in the couple pulling off the wedding of their dreams was their wedding planner at Rock Paper Scissors Events.
The whitewashed walls of Mykonos served as the perfect backdrop for the wedding’s rich-colored details. In the end, Ingrid got her wish and so much more. Not only did Toni visit Greece, but they shared the beautiful destination and their heartfelt commitment with those they love most.
