Destination Inspiration: GreeceWords by Courtney Kellar

As a special treat to our readers and as a "thank you" to all our wonderful contributors, Destination I Do is doing a special sneak preview of one of the photo shoots featured in our brand new Fall/Winter 2015 issue! These beautiful photos are meant to spark your curiosity and get you running out to pick up our new issue in order to see more! Under "more photos" are some images, which appear in the fashion spread and some which are being published exclusively online.
This photo shoot was put together by a talented team of vendors who not only wanted to inspire destination wedding couples, but fulfill a bucket list item in visiting the iconic destination of Greece. As the headliner of this issue’s Fashion Forward section, we took the gorgeous images and found an intangible link between the wedding inspiration and the destination of Greece itself. In the feature, titled “Destination Inspiration: Greece,” you can see three different fashion set-ups inspired by light, land and sea.
As mentioned before, this blog preview includes a sampling of the images featured in our current issue and some bonus shots which didn’t quite make it into the print feature. Do see the full feature, be sure to pick up Destination I Do’s Fall/Winter 2015 issue, on stands now. We also want to extend a big thanks to the talented team who put together this photo shoot and entrusted us to bring their hard work to print pages. For more information on the dream team who made this vision a reality, please see the vendor list below. Also, as a bonus, Little Tree Studios is sharing the video they made to accompany the photo shoot.
