Imagine saying ‘I Do’ on the first anniversary of the day you met the love of your life- well that’s exactly what Chyna & Brandon did, in a dreamy Santorini wedding celebration!

An intimate wedding at Fanari Villas, Santorini

Like a true romantic dream, the Washington based couple opted for a terrace ceremony at the epic island venue of Fanari Villas. Complete with wooden hexagon floral arch, styled pampas grass and of course the most impressive Caldera backdrop, Chyna and Brandon experienced an intimate wedding day like no other…

Captured by passionate wedding photographers Lighthouse Photography, Teo & Anna gave us their words on Chyna and Brandon’s epic Santorini wedding day…

“What impressed us most, was their excitement! Literally, they couldn’t hide how crazy in love they were. And why would they! Oh could feel the love in the air. Everywhere! We couldn’t ask for anything more! A beautiful couple, an incredible background and a great love that must be captured in the best way possible.

Fanari Villas is one of the most impressive hotels in Oia , with all the Greek elements you expect from a Santorini hotel. All white buildings in Cycladic architecture and huge balconies overlooking the endless blue of the Aegean. It was the best scenery for a romantic wedding.

Chyna and Brandon got ready separately and even though their rooms were side by side, they made sure not to meet up before the first look. They solely wrote their vows and got dressed. Chyna wore her madewithlovebridal wedding gown and her impresive badgleymischka heels. So beautiful and so confident. Absolutely ready to meet the love of her life. Brandon patiently waited for her and when he first saw her..Oh gosh..! If only you could feel the vibe. His eyes spoke like saying “I’m the luckiest man in the world! And as for Chyna..oh yes, she was what people call ‘A woman in love’.

The ceremony was emotional and it was sealed with a big kiss right after the ‘I Do’s’. After some family portraits and refreshing cocktails, we went for a mini photo shoot nearby. And one more time, we felt so lucky that we had Santorini as our work space. Warm light and earth tones combined with the white houses and the Caldera view. Everything worked out so perfectly and beautiful pictures came along so effortlessly.”

“And what about dinner goals! A lighting structure on a wooden table, decorated with pink roses and lots of pampas- well, it was magic. As the light faded and the sunset magically transformed the sky, our lovely couple cut their cake and gave a sugar kiss before the ultimate romantic dinner. An intimate wedding in Santorini and a first Anniversary that will always be remembered as one of the best days of their lives.” Teo & Anna of Lighthouse Photography
