Painted in bold blue, the domes of the churches of Santorini have an emblematic presence that enchants every traveler. And it’s not just their unique architecture that has made them universally recognizable. Combine the picturesque structures with the deep blue Aegean Sea as a backdrop, and you’ll have a setting for one the most romantic places to take pictures. The blue color of the dome comes from the endless blue of the sky and the sea that only Greece has. Also, the domes of the churches, which always has a cross on the top, symbolize the sky, where God lives.

Unique place for a surprise engagement proposal | Dennis and Charisma’s story

It’s no surprise that every year couples travel from all over the world to get engaged in Santorini. Charisma had been dreaming for years to make a trip to Greece and take pictures at one of the blue domes of the island. Dennis, found the perfect chance to amaze his future wife with an engagement proposal at her favorite spot. During the planning process, Dennis opened up about his feelings for Charisma.  He felt that his girlfriend deserved a more unique and romantic wedding proposal compared to the typical Santorini proposals at the wedding venues. Therefore, the blue domes were the best place to kneel down and propose. Eventually, the proposal left Charisma in utter amazement since she was just expecting a casual photoshoot at some of Santorini’s most extraordinary spots. Upon delivery of the pics at their hotel in Kamari , Dennis told me that the feeling at the rooftop of the church was almost like floating in the air. He wasn’t sure if he was feeling like Peter Pan, his favorite hero or like Jack in Titanic while he was standing on the bow of the ship with Rose. The unique views definitely helped him to relax before kneeling down and placing the engagement ring on Charisma’s finger.
