Cunda Ortunc Hotel Destination Wedding

Selin and Berke tied the knot at a very beautiful September day in beautiful Cunda. surrounded with olive trees and deep blue water of the aeagean sea; this two-day event was hands down one of my favorite. Selin and Berke live in New York but they wanted to have this special event in Ayvalik area where it is very special for Selin and her family and they kept the event very minimal with some traditional tastes. The wedding was held in famous Ortunc Hotel. Selin has designed her own jewelry, as part of her brand Selin Kent, along with her husband's cufflinks and shirt buttons. Her dress was a long sleeved beautiful Lihi Hod design. Overall the main goal was to have fun with the loved ones all around the world and they sure did achieve this! if you wanna learn more about the details of this lovely wedding you can find little inteview of Selin about her wedding on famous Coveteur with more of my images! <3

santorini , oia travel guide

probably one of the most visited island of greece, santorini provides the infinite feeling of the beautiful mediterranean. on a very hot june weekend, while visiting for a wedding, i get to discover the colorful northern part of the island, oia. this small island welcomes so many tourists that it is very hard to find empty spots to enjoy. but yet i have managed to find my way into this cute town and manage to experience both the hot morning and the breezy afternoon with great sunset view. being a volcanic island, the dark texture of nature meets beautifully with the neat pearl like man made architecture. the one and only pedestrian street of oia is enough to discover the iconic view of the island. blue domed churches, rustic bells, the colorful cliff view and the sunset.. 

because it is a very popular island i highly recommend you to do all your reservations way earlier than usual. the airline fees are very high, hotels are relatively expensive compared to what they offer and restaurants are always packed during dinner time. so plan very ahead. i stayed at family own the flower pension at the very entrance of oia which was walking distance to the main street with a parking lot! which is a lifesaver! i have always liked greek food and the restaurants we have been were also very nice to dine at. candouni, a very small restaurant with live music and nice atmosphere, is in the inner side of oia streets but if you wanna have the view and dine strogili was also a good choice to dine with the sunset. santorini is a destination for everyone. a bit harder with kids with strolling reasons but it can be romantic, adventurous, calming, artsy... you name it. if you give at least of 2 days you'll get to see plenty. but i highly recommend to stay 3 days to see the most of it. 

i hope you'll enjoy the photos as much as i did while taking them! more of the greek island photos to come soon too! and also big thank you to dilara&gokalp from puciwed for taking my portraits too! <3

norwegian-turkish wedding by the bosphorus historic adile sultan palace

if you were to ask me how to describe this wedding i would say elegant, emotional and fun. i not only cried during the dinner but also had really fun at the party! on a beautiful june day; dearest anne and burak vowed each other in front of their loved ones at beautiful adile sultan palace that looks over beautiful bosphorus from the above. it has became one of the very special wedding of this past season not only because anne's norwegian roots brought the memories of the wedding of a good friend of mine back in oslo, but also i get to see 3 other couples of mine from past year and we get to enjoy this wedding all together! i really love my job cause constantly i get to witness the most beautiful moments of people's lives. also when the wedding involves touchy speeches it definitely is more sincere and this wedding had a lot of that moment. i am so honored and happy that i get to meet with great hearted anne and burak and be a part of their very special day!

as a health coach and nutritionist anne was also launching her new business natura by anne during her wedding preperations. (by the way check her products they really are good!) she also had special wedding cake made by talented we.eatlove which looked and tasted really good! green and white themed wedding styled by talented aisha weddings and events and anne's dress was from niquie. hope you'll enjoy the details and will inspire you one way or another!
