Jen & John had a simple and elegant destination wedding in Hvar Croatia. Because when you have so much history and natural beauty, you really don’t need much else. I absolutely love every detail of this wedding – from the crisp white decor with hints of greenery to the venue’s historic architecture. If you’ve been dreaming of a destination wedding in Croatia, you’ll find tons of inspiration in these gorgeous photos by Iva & Vedran Weddings.
