Ilze & AJ – Private Estate Wedding

A beautiful Christ Centered Marriage in Crete…

Upon meeting Ilze & AJ for their ”Go See” meeting with our company, the first thing the couple mentioned was that they wanted their family & friends to experience something totally different, something fresh, a Greek experience with a touch of class! 

Saying this, we knew right away and offered them the opportunety to celebrate their love at a private estate in Chania.

This estate was perfect for them as it is an open air venue , ideal for summer weddings, spacious enough to accommodate both the ceremony and the reception dinner.  Ilze our bride loved pastel colors and flowers so we proposed a theme that would represent a vintage elegance.

Early that morning our team arrived first, everyone was on spot to make sure all preparations were done in time for this beautiful wedding. At noon Ilze & AJ arrived with their wedding party to check into their private suites and prepare themselves for their shinning moment. AJ and the boys got the modern black room and Ilze and her gals the glamorous white room. Both parties were enjoying every moment, sounds of laughter and happiness filled the area. 

Their friends and family who had flown in from all over the world slowly arrived at the estate to witness these two wonderful people wed. Our team greeted them with some cool refreshments, everyone looked fabulous, especially our groom’s family from India .  It was so nice how this multicultural wedding party blending together as one. Our couple asked for a rustic, vintage styling capturing our islands beauties.

Ben the guitarist played the couples favorite songs while everyone gathered to take their place and to be seated. AJ followed by his groomsmen arrived at the ceremony, our groom stood silently deep in though anticipating the grand entrance of his wife to be.  

At the first sight of our bride, our groom encapsulated by her beauty, hearing their favorite song in the background became filled with emotion and tears.  The bride beaming from her beauty and sweetness we could all seeing her love for her groom when their eyes met. The backdrop of their wedding ceremony was painted with  blue skies and their symbolic cross dressed with flowers gave the perfect ambiance and touch for their wedding day.  Their pastor accompanied them and performed a  touching religious ceremony portraying their beliefs while  they sealed their vows for one another in-front of their family and friends. 

Following their ceremony everyone gathered for family portraits whilst enjoying a few nibbles & cocktails. Our Newlyweds were overwhelmed with joy and we couldn’t have been happier for them. Everyone was having an great time enjoying their friend and  famous confectioner’s Manuello’s sweet station, the variety of canapes and our signature cocktail “Marry me in Crete”, while admiring  the golden hour and beautiful sunset . 

Once sun down everyone was escorted to their table where we served a mouthwatering buffet that represented our islands delicacies. While their guests enjoyed their dinner we introduce a traditional Cretan show. This was definitely a highlight for the evening as the dancers arrived dressed in traditional outfits. They presented our bride and groom with a basket of gifts and offered their guests an aperitif “Raki” & traditional wedding dessert “Kserotigana”.  

…and because a wedding isn’t a wedding without a cake cutting, this wedding not only had a three tier naked custom cake made from our famous confectioner Manuello but also a dessert bar that would make anyone’s mouth-water. While our couple cut their cake, their friends and family circled them with a sparkle send off. The evening was full of surprises, Ilze and AJ had prepared a performance for their guests where the couple showed off their moves and set the mood for a night of dancing under the stars. 


On behalf of our team, Royal Blue Luxury Events we would like to wish Ilze &  AJ a lifelong of happiness and thank them for trusting us with their dream wedding in Crete. It was an honor working with you and we will always cherish the moments we spent organizing your special day! 

Lastly we wish to thank our dedicated team  for their professionalism in making this wedding one of a kind.
