BRIDE'S PREPARATION - THE BACKSTAGE

All big moments happen after other big moments. And in every one of them, my dearest friends are unconditionally included. I would be lost without them in every possible sense.
I organized the wedding in less than 2 months, but without my girlfriends, the whole preparation wouldn't be the same. It wouldn't be as magical, as true, as girly, as lovely as it actually was. My maid of honor, Pavlina, stood by me, not only at the church, but she was my inspiration, my precious help, my bff during the whole period. My other half is my man, but if we would have a second other half, Pavlina would be mine.
And now, the backstage.
A huge THANKS to 2 people, 2 true artists, who played the most important role in the whole preparation, and with their heart and their true smile, they took care of my hair and make up in this biggest day. Elena Chatzinikolidou created this amazing makeup look (i really believe she is the best mua ever) and Petros Tsampoukos gave me the most chic hair style i have ever witnessed.
And as for the bridal gown.. After i designed the basic idea, along with Pavlina we looked for the perfect fabrics and materials around the industries. We finally decided to go with a hand made lace of pure silk, carefully hand embroidered with little stones all over. We, also, made a romantic veil with the same embellished lace and silk tulle - so so soft like a dream. Like we stole the fuzzy clouds and masterly put them on my hair. (i am being poetic in posts like this, i know..)
But i leave the rest on the photographers to draw the picture.
