This art-inspired wedding ceremony decor introduced the Heilsberg to Santorini

Isn’t it wild how you can find inspiration everywhere? Maria, the talented force behind Tie the Knot Santorini, is a fan of combining art and printed textiles, so her inspiration for this abstract art-inspired wedding seems almost coincidental:

One day I was walking among the scenic trails of Santorini when I noticed the abstract, colorful prints on the dress I was wearing. The pattern complemented the warm Santorini colors so nicely and I thought it would look amazing as a wedding backdrop! So I shared the idea with my dear friend (and super talented photographer) Nisha Ravi and she loved it!

The colors and designs are reminiscent of Salvation Mountain – and the popular man-made travel destination influenced the design of the ceremonial course.

There’s a lot to love on the art-inspired wedding day, so let’s dive into the details!

First a pop of pink

Bougainvillea bouquetThe day began in the perfect spot on canvas – the beautiful, secluded villa of Akrorama. The perfect place for a touch of pink in the form of a beautiful bougainvillea bouquet!

The aisle channeled the Salvation Mountain vibe with flowers and colorful abstract strokes. The huge painted leaves from Betty Flowers Santorini were the perfect end to the art-inspired wedding decoration!
