Chevron! This print is everywhere I look, and I love it. Any colour, any size. There's something so classic about, which I think is hard to achieve with a print. You will definitely see this print making an appearance around my house in the near future. (I don't know where...but I'll figure it out..) Here are a few favourites I found on Pinterest.
By the way, if you're into collecting inspiration online you should definitely get on Pinterest!

I already finished my "Making the Dress" series - and that dress was definitely one of my favourite details. But there were so many more details that made our day unique and I wanted to share them with you! Our wedding day was definitely the biggest DIY event we've ever put on - but all of the time and energy was well worth it. Of course we couldn't have done it alone; we had tons of help! Thanks a million to everyone who pitched in :)
What was your favourite detail of YOUR wedding day? I'd love to hear!

To end off our journey, we spent two more nights in Mykonos, then Crete, then Athens before flying home. We had a great time in Athens (basically unaffected by any political unrest) - exploring the city and experiencing the unique culture and history.

After our cruise, we disembarked on the island of Santorini. This island was absolutely the highlight for us - the villages, the views, the food, and the adventures. As you can tell by the pictures, the island of Santorini is very narrow and cliff-like. Most of the buildings are built at the top of the cliff and overlook the Aegean Sea. Because the island is so narrow, there are many places where you can see the Sea on both sides! Also, Santorini is only approximately 30km from end to end, so it is easy to see the whole island in one day (especially if you rent a scooter or ATV, which we did). The island is in a semi-circle around a caldera (active volcano), which is part of what makes the view from Santorini so unique. Another unique feature of Oia (prounounced ee-ah), one of the most popular villages in Santorini, are the blue-domed churches. Santorini is an incredibly beautiful place - we were not disappointed!
Next: Crete and Athens!
