The first wedding story for 2022! You may remember this couple from the Prewedding that was published a few months ago. Nikos and Matina, and this is their amazing wedding story! After waiting two years for this special moment, the day had finally arrived.
It was summer, almost 40 degrees Celsius, and no one could be outside. Nikos had booked a really nice villa on a hill near the city, while Matina was staying in a really nice hotel room at the Alexander Beach Hotel right by the sea.
Nikos’ friends and family had traveled from other cities for the wedding and they were ready for a perfect wedding. Laughter, hugs, playful moments with shaving cream (a Greek tradition), and banter Nikos as they helped him get ready. Matina had also invited many friends from the city and abroad to the hotel to share her happiness. A bit of alcohol, a bit of dancing, while the bride was getting ready in the next room. And suddenly a queen appears, so beautiful that everyone was amazed. What a lovely wedding dress!
The ceremony was held in a small church a little out of town. You had to climb a lot of stairs, but the decor along was introducing your eyes to a dreamy place. Vicky from Event Lab ( Decoration Vendor ) had transformed this already amazing place into a romantic wedding spot for the ceremony. White chairs with green flowers and an elegant decor theme in gold tones. Melodies, romantic saxophone melodies played by Kostas (Musician). Despite the 40 degrees Celsius, everyone was delighted. Time passed very quickly and Matina arrived with her father on her right and her brother on her left. A gentle kiss from her “prince” and the ceremony began. A ceremony like no other, with internal moments of happiness as the priest, blessed the couple. And an ending full of rice… Too much rice.
Before we left the church, we took a few portraits to capture that feeling of “Yes!!! We did it!” and then we headed to the reception vendor “Epavli”. An outdoor venue, full of warm lights that made you feel like you were in a dreamy place. Fireworks, an energetic entrance by the couple, the cutting of the wedding cake, and a glass of champagne for everyone to celebrate this summer day.
Finally, Nikos and Matina enjoyed their wedding song under all the little lights, like dancing under the stars and within each other’s soft hug.
