Which was no other than “Blue Moon” sang by Robert De Niro in New York, New York. With summer on the horizon, they decided to make their “jetting off to the Greek islands” dream a reality. Therefore, anything big-apple as a foundation for their concept was out of the question.
The Location of this Utterly Romantic Elopement:
During their first discussions with planner The Isle they asked for guidance and location! Ios Island came to mind, as the perfect destination to view a blue super-moon while basking in utter romance. Georgie and Toni suggested a magical perch upon the hills, Ios Club, which seemed to tick all the right boxes for Saoirse and Enzo. Nonetheless, add jaw-dropping views, minimalist aesthetics, a private space, and tons of romantic ambiance. Furthermore, The Isle created a floral nod to their song, to top the couple’s concept. With heavily scented, classically shaped blooms, Twice in a Blue Moon roses. The silver lilac tint with hints of blue, perfectly bound with elegant barefoot luxury accents and organic details.
The Utterly Romantic Ceremony:
On the day of the wedding, the terrace of Ios Club got decked out with a floral arch. Draped with soft fluttering fabrics, raffia notes, and crocheted pillows. The intimate ceremony, set with a magnificent view of the sea below was like straight out of a fairytale. To sum up, the couple prepped together and recited their romantic vows in the afternoon. As the last light of day kissed the skies they sat for bubbly and a private dinner right before the blue moon took them in its arms.
