Jasper & Krescent

Jasper and Krescent from San Fransisco had been in Folegandros last year, fell in love with this tiny island and decided to get married there. They started off with planning the basics on their own but soon realized that it isn’t easy on a tiny island to find everything that you need. When they’ve contacted me, I was super happy to help them out!

 

Jasper and Krescent are both active in the art scene and it became soon clear to me that these two were open to more unconventional ideas. We decided that we wanted to work with pampas grass, as the color just blends in perfectly with the rocky landscaping of Folegandros and it gives it a free-spirited look and feel. The round arch symbolizes eternity, as it has no beginning and no end.

 

The ceremony took place at Fata Morgana and contained a ring warming. During the ring warming, all their guests were asked to stand around the swimming pool. The rings were guided from hand to hand so that each guest could make their blessing for the newlyweds. At the same time, Jasper and Krescent said their vows to each other – in private.  

 

After the ceremony and the cocktail hour, guests were headed to Eva’s Garden. Eva’s Garden is a beautiful garden restaurant in the tiny streets of one of the most beautiful villages of the Cyclades, Chora. We turned the garden into an enchanted garden, covered in fairy lights. The whites and blues that are so known around the village are a beautiful contrast with the color palette that we had chosen. Green garlands with bright pink and orange hues, gold cutlery, jeans blue stonewashed linen napkins and calligraphed individual menus on Indian cotton. The ambiance was very intimate, with amazing food and drinks. There was a lot of space for the guests to be themselves, playing music and just enjoying every single minute.

 

The party continued at the local nightclub where their friends prepared a DJ set and everyone danced until the sun came up!
