LOVE WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
A Mystical Winter Proposal Style Shoot In Athens
This moody engagement at dusk is something out of a romance novel and we’re loving all the dramatic styling throughout the story. Dreamed up and designed by MILI LO Event Design & Planning, this mystical engagement tells of a romantic dinner for two followed up by a surprise proposal at dusk (spoiler…she says YES!).
Mirror furniture, colorful blooms, and velvet textiles complete the overall design, and it’s the perfect setting for a surprise proposal in the moonlight with a bottle of bubbly and cake to celebrate after!
Nature is a large inspiration in my life and triggers my imagination and creativity. After stumbling across this huge, magnificent oak tree in the Royal County Estate in northern Athens, I felt this would create a mysterious backdrop and dramatic setting for a winter proposal style shoot.
In order to counter balance the monotonous and bare surrounding, I envisioned a glamorous yet dramatic set up. I wanted to use luxurious elements such as velvet, gold touches and mirrors. I wanted something on a grand scale as well as mystical so I chose my vendors accordingly starting off with the photography team and engagement ring followed by the furnishings and so on.
Moving onto the décor details, we designed custom made stationery, a textured custom cake and cake topper. We designed a bright but warm floral garland to create a contrast with the surrounding and handpicked exclusive art de la table tableware pieces to suit the sophisticated and elegant dinner table.
The dress was selected from a daring fashion designer whose design fit perfectly with our concept as it was a bold design yet dramatic style in velvet, which is the ultimate sophisticated winter fabric. The suit worn was a luxurious black and grey tuxedo also tailored by a famous designer.
